Blackberry ceases PRIV support

BlackBerry, known for producing world’s most secure Android smartphones, will no longer deliver monthly updates for their PRIV smartphone.


According to BlackBerry Senior Vice President and General Manager of Mobility Solutions Division Alex Thurber, BlackBerry committed to deliver 2 years of monthly software updates for the PRIV, however, the PRIV’s built-in security had “little need for many of the updates” as they believe that their phones are more secure.

On the other hand, Blackberry will still continue to support their loyal users by fulfilling warranty obligations for the PRIV, engaging their partners if there’s a need to to develop and deliver necessary patches, and lastly, they will soon introduce a trade-up program for current BlackBerry customers who are still using the PRIV as well as BB10 and BBOS devices.
