The Samsung Galaxy S22 was one of the best Android phones when it first came out. While the newer Galaxy S23 is now considered the top dog, Samsung has worked hard to keep the S22 feeling fresh. They offer software updates for a long time after release. This helps phones stay useful for more than just their first year.
In exciting news, Samsung has now started rolling out the One UI 6 update based on Android 14 for the Galaxy S22 series. Best of all, this update means you can enjoy the latest version of Android without any hassle from beta versions.
Some Galaxy S22 Ultra users in Europe were the first to get the update. Its version number is DWK4, and it includes security patches from November 2023. Samsung usually releases updates in stages, watching for bugs. If all goes well, the rollout will expand to other Galaxy S22 phones and other regions soon.
To check if the update is ready on your Galaxy S22, go to Settings > Software update > Check for software updates. The download is about 3GB due to it being a major system update.
Users can look forward to visual changes in notifications, quick settings and the lock screen with One UI 6. It also adds a new Studio app for video editing and improved security features like Auto Blocker. These kinds of software updates are one reason Galaxy phones stay fast and secure long after purchase.
With this easy rollout, Galaxy S22 owners everywhere can experience Android 14 without hassles. Just keep an eye out for the update notification now arriving on devices. Staying up-to-date makes the most of a flagship Samsung phone for even more months to come!
