Even though Nexus devices are among the first to receive the newest versions of Android, unfortunately the same can’t usually be said for the smartphones on Verizon’s network. However, if you’re the owner of a Nexus 6 on Verizon, you’ll be happy to hear that Big Red has finally approved the update to Android 5.1.1 with build number LMY47Z for Google’s phablet.

Although it’s been quite some time since Android 5.1.1 has been out, at least this update isn’t a crucial one. This is the same build that has already rolled out to the Sprint, AT&T and U.S. Cellular variants of the device. It mainly brings bug fixes and performance improvements, and not much more than that.

If the update hasn’t made its way to your device yet, it should within the next few days. To check for a new update, head to Settings>About phone>System updates>Check for update. Once it comes to your device, be sure to let us know in the comment section!
