Next Pixel 6 & 6 Pro update looks to start rolling out Jan 17

We’ve known since the end of last month that the next Pixel 6 update would arrive later than usual. According to an operator today, the January security patch (and December feature drop) could start rolling out next Monday.

Canadian carrier Fido updated its “Operating System Update Schedule” support page this morning with a date of Jan. 17 for “Jan. SMR & more” after not previously specifying when it would be available.

This source should be fairly reliable (though the Pixel 3 and 3 XL didn’t get the January security patch, just the emergency call fix), and it would arrive a little less than two weeks after this month’s update was rolled out to all other compatible Pixel phones. .

It’s earlier than the “End of January” estimate Google provided at the end of 2021, but this could be the case with a staged OTA rollout to better spot any issues. Another consideration is how quickly various carrier builds will be available, with the Pixel 6 December update later for Australia than other regions. That said, the factory and OTA images for manual installation/local installation should be available on Monday.

Pixel 6 Next Update

This January update for the Pixel 6 and 6 Pro will address nearly 100 total issues with the device and Android 12, as well as the calling issues some experienced that led to the December update being pulled.
