We typically receive a Pixel security update on the first Monday of every month. But it seems that the August update, which addresses 40 CVEs, is delayed. It hasn’t made its way to Pixel devices and isn’t available on Google’s firmware images page.

This isn’t the first time Google has postponed a Pixel update. Previously, the December 2021 update was canceled because it introduced new bugs. While we don’t know why the August update is being postponed, it’s likely that Google is holding it back to fix some kind of issue.

Despite the delay, Google released its August update bulletin on time. The company says this update will fix 40 bugs and vulnerabilities, including some critical vulnerabilities that could allow remote code execution.

We expect Google to share the status of this update in the coming days. For what it’s worth, Pixel 6a smartphones are now receiving the June security patch. And Verizon just shipped an unscheduled firmware update (SQ3A.220705.003.A3) for the Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro; however, it is only a revision of the July 2022 update.
