Samsung officially released the April 2019 Security Patch for the Galaxy Tab S3. The update is currently available only in the UK and is pushed out gradually, which means that it should embrace all the devices during the following days.
Of course, more regions will soon receive the firmware and other models of the Tab S3 will be starting to notify their users with the April 2019 Security patch update message. Until then there is the manual update alternative as the full software package can be downloaded from online sources.
The April 2019 Security Patch comes with minor changes for the Samsung Galaxy Tab S3. Mainly, you will get the obvious security add-ons along with some bug fixes and stability improvements. Bottom line, with this update installed your Tab S3 should run better than it used to. Of course, your online and offline identity and profile will be more secured than ever.
Since we’re discussing about an official platform, the software is fully stable so you will be able to use the Android functionality without experiencing any software related problems. And hopefully, all the built-in processes and features will smoothly run all the time – in that regard, share your own update experience with us by using the comments field from below.
Do note that the OTA can be received only if your handset is running on stock Android UI. Moreover, the software system should run on factory settings – if root access was granted, or if a custom ROM firmware was applied you won’t be able to receive the update notification. In that case, you must choose to use Odin for manually setting up the April 2019 Security patch on your Samsung Galaxy Tab S3.
If you do apply the firmware manually, in the end you will restore your device back to its factory state – the root access will be revoked, the bloatware reapplied, the stock recovery image reinstalled and so on. If you need further assistance regarding the manual flashing procedure, don’t hesitate and contact us – we will try to assist you as soon as possible.
So, there you go; the April 2019 Security Patch is available for the Samsung Galaxy Tab S3 in the UK. You can manually check for the OTA by heading towards Settings - > Software update - > Download updates manually.
