Samsung Galaxy S22 and S21 are getting their October 2022 security update early, as always

Samsung, at least let the month start

Google releases a security patch and bug fix update for Pixel phones every month. The update usually goes live on the first Monday of each month. You’d think that since they are Pixels, they would be among the first to receive security updates. That’s not the case, though, as Samsung typically releases monthly updates for its products before Google. And the security patch from October is continuing the same theme. Samsung has already issued the October 2022 update for the Galaxy S22 and S21 series, even though September hasn’t even ended yet.

With firmware version S90XU1UES2AVI5, unlocked Galaxy S22 models are receiving the October 2022 security patch in the US (via SamMobile). The update is also mentioned by Verizon on the Galaxy S22 support page, indicating that it will soon be accessible. The changelog claims that the release will deliver Android 13 and One UI 5 to the S22 series, but this is untrue.

The Galaxy S22 series’ October 2022 security patch currently only appears to be available in the US. But given what we know about Samsung, it shouldn’t take long for the upgrade to spread to other markets.

The October 2022 patch is also now accessible for unlocked Galaxy S21 models in the US and Germany according to Samsung. The business hasn’t yet changed its monthly security bulletin. There is no way to know what security issues have been resolved until that time. The update should also resolve the issue where many Galaxy S21 and S22 owners were not getting incoming text messages, according to Verizon’s changelog for the upgrade.

Go to Settings > Software update > Download and install on your phone to see if the October 2022 patch is available if you live in the US. As soon as Samsung introduces new phones and tablets, we’ll update this article to reflect their availability.
