Google Pixel 6a is getting its first security software update

The Google Pixel 6a went on sale in most countries Wednesday, after being available for pre-order since last week. The mid-range smartphone is now receiving its first OTA software update. It does not, however, add any new features and instead updates the Android security patch level for the smartphone to June 2022. This is a little unusual because the update does not include the July security patch. We’re only a few days away from August, and it’s likely that Google will skip the July patch in favor of an August patch update in the coming days.

The initial security software upgrade for the Google Pixel 6a is being rolled out. The update may take a few days to reach your device. Users may manually check their device for software updates by going to Heading > System > System Update > Check for updates.

The Pixel 6a unlocked and carrier variants are both eligible for the day-one patch. The security software update has the following build numbers for different regions:

  • Global (Unlocked): SD2A.220601.003
  • Japan: SD2A.220601.001.A1
  • AT&T, T-Mobile: SD2A.220601.002
  • Verizon: SD2A.2206061.004

Again, the security update for the Pixel 6a doesn’t provide any new features. However, there is a chance that it will include stability and bug fixes. Yesterday, it was revealed that many users were capable of unlocking the phone without even registering their fingerprints. It’s unclear if the problem is hardware or software-related. As a result, if you receive a security update on your device, it is worth downloading and installing.
