Verizon’s latest system updates include a couple of Samsung products, the Samsung Galaxy Note 9 and the Samsung Galaxy Tab S6 and a ZTE mobile device, the ZTE Blade Vantage.

ZTE Blade Vantage

If you are familiar with the way Verizon updates are sent by the carrier, it is normally over the air (OTA) and will be automatically downloaded and installed on your devices. There are two key requirements Verizon usually advices the users to ensure at their end for the smooth download and installation. One is that your device must be connected to Wi-Fi. Some of the update files could be large and you don’t want to unnecessarily pay for data usage. The other important thing is the battery must have at least 50% charge remaining so that the device does not power off during the download or installation. The installation would then be incomplete.
