Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge+ now receiving its first OTA update

Owners of the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge+ can take note of the fact that a software update is now being rolled out for the handset in the form of an OTA download. This is quite an important upgrade since it comes equipped with security improvements, among other things.

For one, the call stability on your Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge+ is meant to increase following this download. Moreover, the company has also mentioned ‘Battery usage optimization’ in its changelog, but has stopped short of revealing the exact details of this pointer.

As SamMobile has pointed out, this could not necessarily mean that there will be an increase in the already admirable battery life of this Samsung phone. The website has noticed that the upgrade has brought with it a new battery menu feature in the form of an App Optimization option.

This little addition seems to allow Galaxy S6 Edge+ users to stop apps from running in the background after 10 minutes. Since this effectively results in saving precious battery life, the company could have deceptively counted the feature under ‘Battery usage optimization.’
