I have a Samsung Galaxy S21 plus and I receive monthly security patches. However on my tab s9 the last update was the one ui 6 update back in November 2023. There haven't been any updates since. The tab is on US region. Is this normal? Why the discrepancy on update cadence for smartphones and tablets? S9 was just recently released.

Tablets are generally on quarterly updates, the next update will be soon with the Ui 6.1 with Ai features !

I think tabs should be on monthly update schedules, same as phones. No reason for them to be decoupled

New tablets are updated quarterly.  The S9 should be getting 6.1 in March.

My Tab S8U was updated on 1 March 2024 so there's something wrong with your device.  Assuming that it is a USA model Try using Smart Switch

Smart Switch for Windows https://www.samsung.com/global/download/smartswitchwin/

Smart Switch for Mac  https://www.samsung.com/global/download/smartswitchmac/

Step 1. Connect your device to your computer using the USB cable provided with your device, and then open Smart Switch on your computer.

Step 2. If a software update is available, Smart Switch might automatically prompt you to update the software or will display an option to update

Step 3. Click Update and use the on-screen prompts to download the necessary files

Step 4. Click OK to proceed. Your device may turn off and on a few times during the update process. When the update is complete, the device returns to the Home screen.

Note: Don't disconnect the USB cable or use your device.

No, my tab 8 ultra was updated, my tab 9 ultra hasn't been. The devices are never updated at the same time. It's a Samsung problem, not my tablet

Is it a Wi-Fi or 5G variant? What is your carrier/CSC code? Do note that the Open carrier (XAR) is also used for Wi-Fi variants.
