samsung has been pushing software updates to some of its older devices, but now it’s taking this even further. The company has started pushing updates to millions of unsupported galaxy phones. The Galaxy S8 was released way back in 2016, and officially lost support in 2020, so it was a surprise to see the phone receive a GPS software update. The same thing happened with the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy Note8. It looks like Samsung hasn’t left it there, but instead is rolling out GPS software updates to some of its older devices. According to Sam Mobile, the GPS update is coming to the Galaxy A7 (2018), Galaxy S5 Neo (2015), Galaxy S6 (2015), and Galaxy Alpha (2014). It is estimated that there are more than 500 million of these phones still out there. Needless to say, these are really old devices, and most of those units are probably no longer in operation. However, Samsung has decided to push the updates. If you have one of these phones, you should be able to download the update. Please note that these updates only affect the phone’s GPS tracking capabilities. You don’t get any additional functionality and you don’t get security updates.
