LG G6 Software/Security Updates

Why is this device so behind on updates in Canada compared to other regions? We are still on April 1st.

Looking online most regions and US carriers are on July.

Is LG not providing security updates for the Canadian variant?

Re: LG G6 Software/Security Updates

Hello @milan187

It all depends on when LG Canada sends the update to the carriers and when the carriers officially are done testing them and release them then. Unfortunately looking at the OS Upgrade Schedule post doesn't seem to show it will be coming soon unless they update it sometime this week.

I would wait around and see what happens. Hopefully it comes out soon!

 I'm guessing Canada isn't getting ANY of the Wireless charging and Quad DAC features, which is WORSE than getting limited features.

Hello @SarahBishop

The Canadian G6 has the wireless charging option.. The Canadian G6 never got the DAV features though. This was a decision done by LG Canada Strickly.

Re: LG G6 Software/Security Updates

Just got some small update today (it says bug fixes, what bugs?).

We are still in April 1st Security. Doesn't it make sense to update the security if you are sending out an update?

Hello @milan187

Bugs fixes coke straight from LG Canada and not the carriers. So this update was straight from them.. It could not include any bug fixes they noticed.

Re: LG G6 Software/Security Updates

Hello @Anso

Most likely carrier updates or the security updates for the device. Sometimes they will send random updates to phones to fix any carrier updates that need to be fixed.

Check your security update under About and see what date it shows.

Re: LG G6 Software/Security Updates

Hey @NicholasLaprise

 

Welcome to the Rogers community 🙂

 

I am always super excited for the firmware to update on my phone. 
I did take a look and as per our OS upgrade schedule page, the LG G6's current OS version is 8.0. 

 

Could you please go into your settings and confirm if you have any software updates available? 
Could you also confirm, if your device was purchased from Rogers? 

 

Thanks and looking forward to your response.
