  1. Fake Apps Promise Updates to Latest Android Only to Bombard You with Ads Waiting for your device manufacturer to release the update to the latest version of Android is a painful experience, and Samsung users probably know this the best. And while many are looking into ways to get the upgrade before it officially becomes available for their devices, you should never (NEVER!) turn to apps in the Google Play Store that promise instant updates. Because as discovered by AP, the number of apps posted in the Play store and offering to update your devices to the latest Android release even if it’s not yet available is increasing every day. And it happens for a good reason: these apps try to trick people into downloading them only to then bombard them with ads. While I won’t link to such apps for an obvious reason, simple searches like “Update to Android P” returns several of them, and most claim they do the same thing: they download and install Android P on your smartphone, even if the manufacturer of the device hasn’t released it.Apps still available for downloadOf course, this sounds odd for power users, but there are obviously many beginners out there who eventually installed the apps hoping to get the latest Android. And the review sections of these apps pretty much speak for themselves, as most users found out the hard way that the purpose was to actually bring ads to their devices. Obviously, Android OS updates are never delivered via the Google Play Store, so you should never fall for such tactics. Always stick with the system update feature of the device, which is located in the settings section. The more worrying thing is that these apps somehow escaped Google’s filters even though they obviously violate the store guidelines. Hopefully, the search giant would take care of them shortly, but as a general precaution, make sure you check twice before installing something that sounds too good to be true. Source
