The software update will display a green battery icon at the top of the Note 7's screen if you're using a model with a stable battery.
Users who have a Note 7 that still needs to be returned will see a warning message telling them to power the device down and take it back to the store. The warning will show up every time users turn on their device.
Samsung also said in a statement Tuesday that it has shipped 500,000 Note 7 replacement units to the US. Last week, the company said most retailers will have functioning Note 7 replacement units by September 21.
Samsung is recalling all Note 7 phones sold on or before September 15. You can exchange it for a Galaxy S7, a new Note 7 without the battery issue, or a full refund.
