As we reported earlier today, Android 5.0.2 is just now rolling out to the Nexus 9, one of Google’s most recent devices. Even the Nexus 7 (2012) and Nexus 10 received an update to the most recent version available, Android 5.1.1. We’re not sure exactly why Google is doing so poorly on updating this tablet, but at least Nexus 9 owners are getting an update that will squash a few bugs. Try to stay positive, everybody!
