S9+ (AT&T) Received a big update yesterday, What was it?

My S9+ (on AT&T) Received a big update yesterday evening. But I was working so I didn’t have time to read out what it was. What was it?

UPDATE: Just out of curiosity, I did the “check for updates” thing on my phone, and in the last hour or so I’ve downloaded and installed 2 updates and am in the process of downloading a third. Sizes were 90-something for the first one, 150-160-something for the next two. All said they “supports device security improvements.” What is going on?!

    <p>Did the phone reboot after the update installed? If yes, it may have been Android 8.1.</p>

      <blockquote><a href="#359409"><em>In reply to to Patrick3D:</em></a></blockquote><p>The phone rebooted after each update. The first one was the only one that I was notified about. The other three that happened the next day I only did after searching for updates on a whim. According to my phone settings, I'm on Android 8.0.0</p>

    <p>For the time it took you to type out the question, you could've just read the updates.</p>

      <blockquote><em><a href="#359461">In reply to Bats:</a></em></blockquote><p>Where do I go to do that? The only descriptions I saw on my phone for each update was “supports device security improvements.”</p>

    <p>Perhaps Samsung is catching up with their slow months-late security updates?</p><p>Heaven forbid that they update their phones to the latest version of Android so quickly.</p>

      <blockquote><em><a href="#359515">In reply to Winner:</a></em></blockquote><p>I'm new to Android and this S9+ is the first Samsung I've owned since the Blackjack days. If Samsung is known for delaying monthly security updates, then perhaps that was it and I just received 4 months of security updates. </p>
