One UI 4.0 brings Material You-inspired Color Themes, which set up a system-wide color based on the dominant color in the wallpaper used. It also brings revamped UI, new widgets, Quick Panel improvements, camera improvements, new privacy features, and more. According to the changelog, the update also brings BYOD (bring your own device) feature. It lets you easily switch to Verizon carrier and brings Dual SIM Dual Standby (DSDS) feature, which allows using two phone numbers on the same device.

Verizon has released a new software update to the Galaxy Watch 4 and Watch 4 Classic. It brings four new watch faces – Live wallpaper, Basic dashboard, Info brick, and Weather center – and enhancements to the existing watch faces. As mentioned in the changelog, the update adds hair fall detection and a gesture to open recently used apps by quickly flicking your wrist down twice within 5 seconds. It is rolling out as the system update 2 for both the dial variants – Galaxy Watch 4 (40mm and 44mm) and Galaxy Watch 4 Classic (42mm and 46mm).

Samsung Galaxy S10 Lite starts picking up the November 2021 security update. It is currently rolling out in Spain with the firmware version G770FXXS6EUK1. The latest security patch fixes over a dozen of system security and privacy-related vulnerabilities. It is unlikely to bring major changes like UI changes or new features.
