Verizon has begun rolling out the latest Android 5.1.1 Lollipop update for the LG G3. The update weighs in at just over 350MB and brings a whole bunch of user interface improvements, plus “tighter security features.”
Some reports had suggested that the G3 would skip Android 5.1.1 altogether and be directly updated to Android 6.0 Marshmallow instead. But much to the delight of G3 owners, who have encountered significant issues with Android 5.0.1, an update is on its way.
The release comes with build number LMY47V, and is being distributed over-the-air. Alongside the design improvements and tighter security, the update brings improved Bluetooth connections, and a fix for the dreaded Stagefright vulnerability.
If you have a G3 on Verizon and you haven’t already received an update notification, you can search for it manually from within the software update section of the Settings app. Bear in mind you’ll need a Wi-Fi connection to download it, and at least 40% battery to install it.
