Most often, Google rolls out the most recent Android safety patch to Pixel telephones on the primary Monday of each month. That didn’t happen this morning, and it looks just like the August Pixel update has been delayed.
In accordance to the “Pixel Update Bulletin — August 2022” printed this morning on the regular time, Google will likely be releasing a Pixel update that includes Android 12 and the August safety patch stage. We don’t suppose the Pixel this month is getting Android 13, which is extra doubtless pegged for a September launch.
For Google units, safety patch ranges of 2022-08-05 or later tackle all points on this bulletin and all points within the August 2022 Android Safety Bulletin.
Google lists 40 CVEs throughout “Kernel parts” and “Pixel” which might be addressed by the 2022-08-05 patch stage. Vulnerabilities vary from reasonable to essential and canopy parts just like the kernel, modem, and digicam.
Nevertheless, this update was clearly postponed as OTA photos didn’t arrive at 10 a.m. PT. Further proof of a delay comes from Verizon, which printed particulars about an sudden update for the Pixel 6 and 6 Professional.
The US provider says a brand new update with the July 2022 safety patch stage was launched at this time. The SQ3A.220705.003.A3 construct quantity could be very related to final month’s for Verizon, which was “A1.” Google has not but launched the manufacturing unit or OTA photos for guide set up, whereas the provider didn’t checklist updates for some other Pixel.
One doable situation for this delay is likely to be that Google found a last-minute problem that warranted pulling the August safety patch. Nevertheless, there was nonetheless one thing necessary that required an update and thus the July stopgap emerged.
In the meantime, Google did launch the world/unlocked and AT&T/Verizon (on the June safety patch) builds for the Pixel 6a this afternoon, whereas the Android 13 Beta Program now helps the brand new mid-ranger.
