AT&T is rolling out an over the air update for the LG G4 flagship, but this is not Android Marshmallow or anything to do with Google's platform. That does not mean this upgrade should be ignored as it brings plenty of goodies to the party, albeit under the surface. The second largest carrier in the United States says that the update is available OTA now.As mentioned, there are plenty of new things here, mainly software enhancements, but considering the 420MB size of the file you can guess that it's quite a lot. The update brings all of the following to LG's 2015 flagship smartphone: Calendar enhancements Battery improvements Keyboard enhancements LG Backup Camera enhancements GPS enhancements Exchange Active Sync enhancements Touch Improvement Security enhancements As always, you may have to wait a couple of days to see this update as it is being rolled out in stages, but if you just can?t wait you can head to Settings > About phone > Software updates and pull it in manually. AT&T says you need to have a strong Wi-Fi connection and at least 50% battery to ensure everything goes smoothly in the download process. We guess most of these enhancements and changes are to bring the G4 up to date with the software tweaks found on the recently launched LG V10 phablet.
