Samsung October 2021 security update – what’s new

Samsung first started rolling out the October 2021 security update on September 28 to the Galaxy S21 series. The update, so far, seems to have no user-facing changes and weighs in at around 300MB.

On October 4, Samsung confirmed what’s new in its latest security patch. There are 68 privacy/security patches from Google and 32 vulnerabilities patched by Samsung, 24 of which were considered “high-severity.”

Devices with Samsung October 2021 security update

Which devices will be getting the October 2021 security update from Samsung? The company’s list is, as usual, quite long, with over 40 devices qualifying for monthly updates, over 60 for quarterly updates, and over 40 more for biannual updates. For those lesser-updated devices, it’s unclear exactly how many will actually be updated, especially as recent months have seen many of them updated.
