Have a BlackBerry Priv on Verizon? Surprise! You'll want to go ahead and check for updates as many folks have now started receiving a software update. I'd say it was a new update but really, it just seems to be a 'new to Verizon' update because after all is said and done, it shows build number AAV985 with the October 5, 2017 security patch.
While we had an indication it would be coming soon earlier, there was no official documentation to go along with it from Verizon. Now, though, that has changed and Verizon has finally updated their Priv software update page to officially announce the Android Marshmallow update for Priv owners.
For those of you on Verizon waiting for the BlackBerry Priv to arrive, you might not have all that much longer to wait. According to several Verizon employees, the company seems to be gearing up to, at the very least, start taking preorders on March 3 with the goal being to have it in retail stores come March 11.
A little something for those of you on Verizon who have been waiting for the BlackBerry Priv to arrive. You're now one step closer to being able to pick up the device as it has now checked in with the FCC seeking approval.
