Samsung’s latest and greatest high-end tablet has received a new security patch. The 5G version of the Galaxy Tab S7+ has started getting the September 2021 security update in various parts of Europe. The vanilla Galaxy Tab S7 and the Wi-Fi-only and LTE variants of the Galaxy Tab S7+ haven’t been as lucky, though.

The new update, which bears firmware version T976BXXU2BUI1, includes the September 2021 security patch that fixes more than 50 privacy and security-related vulnerabilities. Device stability improvements and general bug fixes could be a part of the update as well.
If you are a Galaxy Tab S7+ user in any of the regions mentioned above, you might have received a notification regarding the new update. If you haven’t, you can check for the update manually by navigating to Settings » Software update and tapping on Download and install. You can also download the latest firmware file from our firmware database and flash it manually.
