BlackBerry's Alex Thurber published a blog post stating that the company won't roll out monthly updates for the PRIV anymore. This announcement comes as the device steps outside BlackBerry's two-year update policy. But they have also promised to provide security support in case of a critical issue that poses threat to the regular usage scenarios. The company has even stated that many of its monthly security updates weren't necessary because the PRIV's built-in protection kept it secure from numerous threats that were being resolved. It was disappointing news, though the company said it would continue smaller Priv updates for a while.
"When we introduced our first Android device more than 24 months ago, we committed to delivering 2 years of monthly software updates for the Priv".
It has been two whole years since BlackBerry announced a new device running BB10 software and the manufacturer has confirmed the software will only get any kind of support for another two years.
