Generally, Google rolls out the newest Android safety patch to Pixel telephones on the primary Monday of each month. That didn’t happen this morning, and it appears just like the August Pixel replace has been delayed.

Based on the “Pixel Replace Bulletin — August 2022” printed this morning on the regular time, Google shall be releasing a Pixel replace that includes Android 12 and the August safety patch stage. We don’t assume the Pixel this month is getting Android 13, which is extra probably pegged for a September launch.

For Google gadgets, safety patch ranges of 2022-08-05 or later deal with 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 are addressed by the 2022-08-05 patch stage. Vulnerabilities vary from reasonable to crucial and canopy parts just like the kernel, modem, and digital camera. 

Nonetheless, this replace was clearly postponed as OTA photos didn’t arrive at 10 a.m. PT. Extra proof of a delay comes from Verizon, which printed particulars about an sudden replace for the Pixel 6 and 6 Professional. 

The US service says a brand new replace with the July 2022 safety patch stage was launched in the present day. The SQ3A.220705.003.A3 construct quantity is similar to final month’s for Verizon, which was “A1.” Google has not but launched the manufacturing facility or OTA photos for handbook set up, whereas the service didn’t record updates for another Pixel.

One doable situation for this delay may be that Google found a last-minute problem that warranted pulling the August safety patch. Nonetheless, there was nonetheless one thing necessary that required an replace and thus the July stopgap emerged.

In the meantime, Google did launch the worldwide/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.
