Unconnect OTA update 18.43.01

Hi, has anyone had this update? My15 had this update today but I cannot find any info on it. First thing I noticed was the radio did not switch off after I had turned the car off and opened the door at lunch time. I thought this strange went to lunch, then came back and found radio was off. Arrived back at work switched off engine, then noticed there was an OTA update, I
Left it to its own devices and came back 1 hour later and update was done but I cannot see anything different. Security update? Any ideas?

My '15 did it also about a week ago. It is not the one Tweezer19 mentioned. These updates happen every so often. And like you said, the assumption without any other data is security, and other upgrades that may or may not be noticed.

anyone know if there will be an update for the 2014 MY? At the moment the website says my vehicle is up to date (haven't updated it in over 1 year now).

Received the update on my 2014 this Wednesday. Throttle response feels better, not sure if that's possible. Haven't noticed anything else

It IS update 18.43.01 and I also don't see any difference but with the new apple IOS update, it might be just keeping up. I do notice after this update AND the new IOS 13 update to my iphone that my radio is so much faster to respond to commands.

I received the update this morning and it was pretty quick.

While I have no hard evidence on this I am wondering if this update is related to the GPS issue with week numbers that will occur on November 3rd. There have been a lot of updated being released by various companies for this...it somewhat similar to the Y2K event just not as wide spread.

I have tried the download update twice and both times got an update failure with see dealer message. Both times download began and the percent download screen came up. Early in the download the screen went black and nothing came on the screen before starting the engine at a later time and getting the failure notice. Presently waiting for another chance to try again with Uconnect on the line.
