Late: Google still hasn't released security update of the month for Pixel phones

Google seems to be having trouble releasing the next security update for the Pixel lineup. Following the schedule, the August patch should have been released to mobiles by the first Monday of the month in question — which did not happen.

Although it published the security bulletin for the month of August last Monday (1st) within the deadline, the notes are usually accompanied by the update itself for Pixel phones, but curiously, the patch has not yet arrived for any model user. eligible — from Pixel 4 to Pixel 6, including variants.

The hypothesis is that the company has discovered a bug caused by the software update that made the development team make last minute corrections and, consequently, the update had to be postponed. The August security bulletin details 40 Android Kernel Security Fixes for Pixel phones.

Verizon, the world’s second-largest phone carrier, published release notes for the “locked” models of the Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro, reiterating that the update should have been released last Monday. The statement informs that the new version of the software adds performance improvements to the smartphone. Check out:

On a related note, Pixel 3a and Pixel 3a XL users were caught off guard in the month of June when they received unexpected updates on their phones as official support for the line ended a few months ago. The company is now focusing on updating its latest devices with Android 13, including the Google Pixel 6a, which has joined the beta program.

The Google Pixel 6 is available on Amazon for BRL 5,129.
