September’s Android Security update is now rolling out to Nexus devices, and we’ve got access to all the Factory Images, OTA Files, and the Security Bulletin (once it’s updated). This is the first security patch to roll out for Android’s newest OS version 7.0 Nougat.
Marshmallow hasn’t been left behind, of course. Android 6.0.1 files are available for the Nexus 6P, the Nexus 5X, Nexus 5, Nexus 6, and Nexus 9 LTE. The Android 7.0 files are for the Nexus 5X, Nexus 9 WiFi, Nexus Player, and the Pixel C.

At the time of writing, the Security Bulletin has not yet been published, but it should be coming soon. This is expected to be a fairly standard security update that patches small vulnerabilities, so we’re not anticipating anything particularly dramatic or game-changing in the bulletin.
