Plenty of folks in the CrackBerry Forums have already pulled down the approximately 400MB update and have started collecting some feedback on what they're seeing has changed, so be sure to hop in there and let others know if you spot any changes of your own.

Once updated, you'll be on ABE181 with the Android security patch level showing August 5, 2018. Keep in mind, if you have a carrier device, you're reliant on their update schedule, and the update might not be available to you yet.
