Xperia Nougat

Answered
Has Sony not informed telstra of the Nougat update yet. Its been out for a while. Noting XZ5 and XZ4T are on 01 Apr 16 security update and the debacle from Telstra's effort with Marshmallow, I'd have thought Telstra would be more proactive this time around.
Also of note, the Xperia Z5 amd Tablet Z4 have both had 2 other bug fix updates that Telstra haven't still haven't pursued.

Re: Xperia Nougat

As far as the Z5 goes, a bugfix release (Marshmallow) is due out around 3rd March 2017. No updates for the Z4 Tablet.

 

So it doesn't look like Sony has forwarded the Nougat updates for either device to Telstra yet.

 

Note: Telstra doesn't chase updates unless it is impacting the network.

Never be afraid to back yourself when trying new things, just always make sure you have 3 escape routes if things go wrong.

is that actually confirmed Jupiter? "Telstra doesnt chase update unless it impacts the network"

Re: Xperia Nougat

I have never seen evidence of them chasing up an update from a manufacturer unless there has been a submission that has failed that causes an issue with network operations.

 

Why would they? It's not their responsibilty (or capability) to develop one and they've got enough to do to test the ones that do get submitted.

Re: Xperia Nougat

I am under the understanding that's correct @Jupiter

If it's not a critical issue causing network issues they wait for the manufacturer to approach them and submit an update for testing.
