The January 2023 security update has arrived for those with still-supported devices such as the Samsung Galaxy S21, Galaxy Note 10 in European countries. This update should be a typical bug-fixer type of the month.

The update will be reaching the all other European countries in the coming days, and the rest of the world should probably be getting it by the end of this month.
