2 min read

Google yesterday released the November security update for the Android operating system, and also optimized and improved some of its features for its own hardware devices.

For example, improving the stability of the picture-in-picture function of the Google Pixel series of devices, improving the symmetric key generation request, and improving the stability of system notifications.

As a manufacturer, Google also pushes security updates to its own Nexus 5X and Nexus 6P. Unfortunately, this is also the last security update.

Google Nexus series equipment retired across the board:

The Nexus 6P and Nexus 5X, which were produced by Huawei and LG respectively, were released in 2015. Google scheduled initially to terminate device support in September 2018.

However, the deadline was later delayed until November 2018, so the device will no longer receive any updates since the routine security update released yesterday.

After NEXUS, Google launched the Pixel series of equipment, so now the NEXUS series of machine is retired, and the series code should not be used anymore.

Users should upgrade to the latest version as soon as possible:

For the NEXUS family of users, the newest version should be updated as quickly as possible. After all, the new release fixes multiple vulnerabilities such as media frameworks for this series of devices.

At the same time, no Android Routine Security Update means that even if there are any vulnerabilities, it will not be fixed, so it is essential to upgrade the new version no matter how.

Interested users can also check whether the firmware of the third-party adapter will continue to be updated, such as the Lineage OS system.
