Google has released the first security patch to fix problems like battery draining and turning off wireless charging in Pixel phones running Android 13. The monthly software update for September 2022 will reach all supported Pixel devices running Android 13 starting Tuesday. The company said in an update, that the release will continue until next week depending on the carrier device.
The Pixel 6a device will receive the update later this month. Users will receive a notification once an over-the-air update is available for their device. The security update includes bug fixes for an issue that sometimes caused some launcher background activities to drain the battery. An issue preventing wireless charging mode from activating in certain situations.
The update also provides additional improvements to the fingerprint recognition response in certain situations and sometimes fixes an issue that prevents certain Bluetooth devices or accessories from connecting. Monthly security updates also address an issue sometimes caused by truncating notifications on the lock screen.
Updates are available for Pixel 4, Pixel 4 XL, Pixel 5, Pixel 6, Pixel 6 Pro, and Pixel 6a. Earlier, some Pixel 6a users noticed that any fingerprint was able to unlock their new phone in a worrying security lapse. Google Pixel users were also in trouble after downloading Android 13 as many of them were not able to use wireless charging after installing the latest operating system.
