What you need to know

  • Samsung starts rolling out the February 2022 security update to its flagship and mid-range Galaxy devices.
  • The patch is now available for the Galaxy S20 phones and Galaxy A50s, following its release to the Galaxy Note 20 series.
  • The update includes some security fixes and improvements.

Samsung has maintained its impressive update pace by scaling up the number of Galaxy phones receiving its updates while keeping the same speed, overtaking other Android OEMs. The company shows no signs of slowing down, as it is now rolling out the February 2022 security update to some of its Galaxy phones.

The latest security patch has started arriving on the Galaxy S20 series in the United Kingdom following its release to the Galaxy Note 20 series on January 28 (via 9to5Google). The following models are picking up the update, along with the corresponding firmware versions:

  • Galaxy S20: G98xFXXUDEVA9 / G98xBXXUDEVA9
  • Galaxy S20+: G98xFXXUDEVA9 / G98xBXXUDEVA9
  • Galaxy S20 Ultra: G98xFXXUDEVA9 / G98xBXXUDEVA9

Prior to that, the security patch was rolled out to the following Galaxy Note 20 models in the Netherlands:

  • Galaxy Note 20: N98xxXXU3EVA9
  • Galaxy Note 20+: N98xxXXU3EVA9

Some of Samsung's best budget Android phones, which contributed to its sales growth in the third quarter of last year, are also starting to receive the update, starting with the Galaxy A50s (A507FNXXU6DVA2) in Vietnam. It's only a matter of time before the rest of its mid-range phones pick up the update.

The South Korean tech giant has yet to release the changelog, so it remains unclear what issues have been fixed and what improvements have arrived. That said, monthly security updates often come with the regular bug fixes and improved performance.

We'll keep an eye out for the other devices that will get the update in the next few days or weeks. For now, you can check if the update has arrived on your device by heading over to the Settings app and opening the Software update menu.

The hidden cost of food delivery

Noah Lichtenstein Contributor Share on Twitter Noah Lichtenstein is the founder and managing partner of Crossover , a diversified private technology fund backed by institutional investors, technology execs and professional athletes and entertainers. More posts by this contributor What Studying Students Teaches Us About Great Apps I’ll admit it: When it comes to food, I’m lazy. There are dozens of great dining options within a few blocks of my home, yet I still end up ordering food through delivery apps four or five times per week. With the growing coronavirus pandemic closing restaurants and consumers self-isolating, it is likely we will see a spike in food delivery much like the 20% jump China reported during the peak of its crisis. With the food delivery sector rocketing toward a projected $365 billion by the end of the decade, I’m clearly not the only one turning to delivery apps even before the pandemic hit. Thanks to technology (and VC funding) we can get a ri

Technics EAH-AZ60 review: Contending in stunning fashion

Technics serves notice that everyone should notice these earbuds. Technics ventured into the wireless earbuds category to go after the big dogs in the race. Think of the likes of Sony, Bose, and Sennheiser on sound quality, as well as the best you can find on design and functionality. It's a combination that comes at a price, but if done right, it gets easier to justify spending more. That's the case Technics makes with its EAH-Z60 earbuds. Its newest pair aims to take what the company has done in the past and make it even better. The results are easy to like and are significant enough to consider them as serious contenders.

iOS 14 Favorites Widget: How to Make a Replacement With Shortcuts

In iOS 14 , Apple overhauled widgets and introduced an option for adding ‌widgets‌ to the Home Screen , but in the process, a well-loved Favorites widget that existed in iOS 13 was removed. The Favorites widget let users set certain contacts and contact methods as favorites that were easily accessible, so you could, for example, add a favorite option for messaging Eric or calling Dan, with those actions executed with a tap. Why the Favorites widget was removed is a mystery and it could be a simple oversight with Apple planning to reintroduce it later, but for now, those who relied on the widget can recreate its functionality with Shortcuts. It takes some effort, but it may be worth the time investment if you often relied on your Favorites. Creating a Favorites Shortcut Making a shortcut that replicates the behavior of the Favorites widget isn't too tough, but if you want multiple favorite options, you'll need to create a separate shortcut for each one in the Shortcuts
