The July 2022 Android security patch is here! If you own a recent Google Pixel smartphone, you can perform a software update check now in System Settings to grab it. You can also update manually or simply wait for the OTA notification.

Considering this is not a feature drop release, there isn’t much to this update besides the security patch. You can see the full changelog here, but it’s pretty thin.

Also, do note that there will be another update this month specifically for the Pixel 3a and Pixel 3a XL. That would be the final update for both phones.

If you don’t want to wait for the OTA alert on your Pixel phone, you can always manually update. To download the factory image or OTA, click the appropriate link below. Don’t have a Pixel phone? The Google Pixel 6 costs just $599 and is our favorite phone from 2021.
