A new Nexus 6P Android 8.1 Oreo update is available and the device’s October build comes with important security patches for the aging former flagship.
The Nexus 6P won’t get upgraded to the company’s Android Pie update, but it will continue to get Android Oreo updates through most of 2018.
Google’s latest update is the October Android 8.1 build, the tenth security release since the release of Android 8.1 Oreo back in December.
The Nexus 6P October Android 8.1 update is a small update, just a few megabytes, but it could have a major impact on your device. Most of you won’t see much of a change from the the previous Android 8.1 build, but some of you might.
The latest Android 8.1 build doesn’t come with a long list bug fixes for the aging former flagship, but there’s always a chance the new build irons out random bugs or performance issues. There’s also a chance it hurts your device’s performance.
The new version of Android 8.1 is causing problems for some Nexus 6P users and we expect complaints to pickup as the roll out picks up speed and more people download the software onto their phone.
Our guide to the October Nexus 6P Android 8.1 update takes a look at these problems. It also shows you how to download the new Android 8.1 build right now, some things you should do before you install the latest version of Android 8.1, and some other details you should know before, and after, you install the latest Android 8.1 build on your phone.
We’ll continue to update this roundup with new information as we push away from the release date.
