September security patch hits Pixel and Nexus phones

Google introduced Android Pie at the beginning of August and with September already here, the monthly security update has just arrived. Unsurprisingly, the first phones receiving it are the Pixel devices, along with the Oreo-running Nexus 5X and Nexus 6P. The September 2018 Android Security update is OTA and brings minor patches and fixes to bugs.

The full list of phones getting the patches is LG Nexus 5X and Huawei Nexus 6P from 2015, the Pixel and Pixel XL, as well as the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL. The tablet Pixel C also joins them. It is worth mentioning the non-Pixel smartphones and the only slate in this group are staying on Android Oreo since Google discontinued the OS updates back in March.

The new patch is fixing problems like battery charge in Retail Mode and audio quality over car speakers. The complete set of issues is listed in the Android Security Bulletin and the Pixel/Nexus Security Bulletin that you can find in our Source links at the end of this article. The OTA update is still rolling, so if you haven’t received it on your Nexus/Pixel device, go to Settings, System, tap on Advanced and then System update. If it’s still not there, it should arrive soon.
