Less than a month ago, Verizon Wireless finally updated the Galaxy Tab S2 tablets on its network to Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow. Now, the time has come for the unlocked WiFi variants of this slate located in the US to get the same treatment.
The update has roughly 1.1 GB in size and carries the firmware version number T710XXU2CDPD. The usual Android 6.0.1 goodies are all here - Google Now on Tap, new emojis, granular app permissions, Doze mode, multiple tweaks and fixes, as well as the latest security updates. In addition to these, the new firmware also offers the option to add images in S Memo.
The new firmware comes via OTA, so those who did not get the update notification yet can start the process manually by going to Settings > About Device > Software Update > Update Now. As usually in such situations, a solid WiFi connection and a fully charged battery are needed to ensure everything goes smoothly.

In my early school days, I hated writing and having to make up stories. A decade later, I started to enjoy it. Since then, I published a few offline articles and then I moved to the online space, where I contributed to major websites that are still present online as of 2021 such as Softpedia, Brothersoft, Download3000, but I also wrote for multiple blogs that have disappeared over the years. I've been riding with the Notebookcheck crew since 2013 and I am not planning to leave it anytime soon. In love with good mechanical keyboards, vinyl and tape sound, but also smartphones, streaming services, and digital art.
