Verizon rolling out new Wi-Fi update for Galaxy S7, S7 Edge


Verizon has begun pushing out a new update to both the Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge. Both smartphones have been experiencing issues with Wi-Fi and a cellular connection, which should be fixed with this new patch.

Once downloaded and installed the Galaxy S7’s software version number will be MMB29M.G930VVRU2APB5 and the Galaxy S7 Edge’s software version number will change to MMB29M.G935VVRU2APB5.

Verizon recently rolled out an update to the smartphone, supposedly fixing a bunch of security issues; however, the Android security patch version remained at February 2016. This new update supposedly also included “Android security updates,” but the smartphone still remains on the February patch, which is a bit strange.

Here’s the full changelog, per Verizon:

This software update improves Wi-Fi connectivity on Marshmallow OS, and fixes issues including:

  • Trouble connecting to the internet
  • Frequent data disconnections
  • Problems while loading files or web pages

If you haven’t gotten the prompt to download the update, be sure to head on into Settings > About Phone to check for the update manually.

Happy updating!
