We’ve had to wait a while, but the June 2021 Android security update is now rolling out. You can download from the Google Pixel 3 series, but other manufacturers are also involved early on.
Android security update May 2021 available for download
We are in June and as of now the Android security update for this month is rolling out. Google is preparing this update and other manufacturers can also get started with it. They then have to prepare them for their own devices, which can take a while. In practice, with a Google Pixel device you are always quickly provided with updates, but Samsung is also involved early this month.
If you have a Google Pixel 3 or newer in your pocket, the update is now ready for you anyway. For which Pixels the update can also be downloaded, see below:
Google reports that several vulnerabilities have been addressed that range in security risk from high to critical. For example, a bug has been squashed where malicious parties could penetrate a device remotely. In addition to resolving security risks, other things have also been addressed. Issues with notification sounds have been fixed and so are issues with wireless chargers not working properly.
If you have a Pixel 3 or newer, you will automatically receive a notification that the update is ready. However, it is possible to force the update manually. To do this, grab your device and open the settings. Then tap on ‘System’ and choose ‘Advanced’. Tap System Update and your Pixel will check for an update. After that, it’s just a matter of downloading and installing.
No Google Pixel, so when can I update?
If you buy a Google Pixel, you are often the first to receive the latest updates. However, that is not entirely true, because there are manufacturers who are sometimes just a little earlier. In this case, it is Samsung again, because the June update is already available on some devices from this manufacturer. Android Planet publishes an update overview every Friday, in which we list all updates per manufacturer and device.
It is impossible to say exactly when you will receive the new software, because each manufacturer has its own update policy. In addition to Samsung, for example, OnePlus and Nokia are also known for their fairly smooth updates. Manufacturers can also choose not to send out an update every month for all their devices. For example, updates can be bundled and offered quarterly.
Curious about how the manufacturer of your device is doing? Check out our article about the update policy of different manufacturers. We compare them in it, so that you know exactly where you stand.
As mentioned, Android Planet publishes an update overview every Friday with all updates in a row. Did you receive an update on your smartphone or tablet last week? Then be sure to let us know!
