BlackBerry Priv beta update brings in November security patch

BlackBerry Priv beta

BlackBerry has started to push fresh beta update to its Priv smartphone. The update which is coming to all Priv handsets will also install Android security patch for November. However, customers on the Verizon’s network are exempted from received the update.

The new beta update for BlackBerry Priv measures 98MB in size with a firmware version AAH505. The company has issued a statement about the new update.

Today’s update brings news that AAH505, our candidate to be the official November security patch update, is now available to beta participants on all devices (except Verizon variants) to begin testing.

Depending on the build you’re coming from, this will either be a relatively small patch download or a very large full download. If you don’t see the update available, open up the phone dialer and punch in *#*#CHECKIN#*#* then check for updates again.

Since the company is pushing the update in a phased manner, it will take some time for the updates to hit your smartphone.
