US Carriers updates story
Actually, Users can’t get these updates directly from the manufacturer, they will receive it from the carrier. One of the reasons behind this is that each update is subjected to a testing process by each carrier before it is released.
Carrier is the one in control of the phone and the software it comes with, and they are the ones in charge of approving and rolling out updates. When a new version of Android is released, the device manufacturer has to take it and adapt their existing customizations to it.
The manufacturer then has to send out the updates to every carrier. It’s each carrier’s job to test all the different updates for all their different smartphones, and they may take many months to do so. They may even decline to do the work and never release the update.
