Google releases September Android security patch

Google has prepared its Android security patch for September and will be sending out an update to its Pixel and Nexus devices. The last security patch was released on August 6th. The new update, which is dated September 5th addresses 59 vulnerabilities while improving the Retail Mode battery charge for the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL.

The Retail Mode battery charge feature is only applicable to Pixel smartphones that are displayed at retail stores and not useful to end users. Besides that, the update also improves Software Version Reporting, and the audio quality over car speakers (using a Bluetooth connection) for the Pixel, Pixel XL, Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL.

The security update will be pushed out to compatible devices OTA (over-the-air) and once you receive a notification for the update you should make sure your battery is fully charged and that you are connected to a strong Wi-Fi connection before initiating the update.
