BlackBerry apparently released a new Marshmallow beta to its BlackBerry Priv, and it looks like the June security update.

The update reportedly started rolling out on Friday to the BlackBerry Priv models from T-Mobile, Amazon and ShopBlackBerry. According to a new report, the update rollout seems to go beyond beta testers, reaching more device owners.

More specifically, BlackBerry-centric publication CrackBerry reports that many of its forum users have received Marshmallow build AAF153 for their BlackBerry Priv smartphones.

The update brings a slew of fixes to the table, aiming to improve the overall experience. After the update, device owners should find that the Bluetooth OnStar connection no longer drops, the phone is now able to find 5 GHz networks, the Bluetooth sharing no longer stops for no reason and the SIM is no longer detected as new after the smartphone gets a reboot.

Other common BlackBerry Priv issues that get fixed with this update include the "No SIM card" error that appeared when the phone failed to detect the SIM, the device overheating during Skype video calls and disabling audio, the device overheating after an OTA update, the device lagging and overheating due to a phone memory issue and more.

Simply put, the BlackBerry Priv had a lot of issues marring the experience, but this new Marshmallow June update should patch things up and allow for a smooth performance, at last.

According to CrackBerry, the update is quite hefty and weighs 1,805.3 MB, so make sure you have enough available storage space on your device. The report further points out that it looks like an early release, and not all BlackBerry Priv owners may see the update as readily available, but it should roll out to everyone sometime in early June.

BlackBerry is yet to regain its foothold on the ever-competitive smartphone market, but it plans to release more Android smartphones this year. The BlackBerry Hamburg and Rome have leaked online on several occasions, but no official launch dates are known at this point.
