Wireless carrier AT&T is pushing out a security update to its Galaxy S III devices, only a few weeks after the phone started to arrive in users’ hands.
In addition to resolving some issues that were found to affect the smartphone
, the new update is also meant to modify some features of Google's unified search function. Apparently
, the update will prevent the unified search function from accessing contacts, apps and mail.
The same update landed on Sprint’s Galaxy S III device recently, aimed at preventing a sales ban on this device, the same as it happened with Galaxy Nexus
Apparently, users will still be able to use the voice search to benefit from this functionality when looking for something related to contacts, mails and applications, as Apple’s patent does not cover it as well.
