Google started putting out its monthly security patch on Wednesday in the afternoon. This month’s release is timed to the arrival of the first patch for all supported Google Pixel phones after the arrival of the public build of Android 13. There are several improvements included in this version for problems caused by the Android 13 release.
The patch will address the increased battery drain caused by certain wallpapers, and it will fix an issue where wireless charging was not activating under some conditions. There’s also a fix for the fingerprint scanner, a Bluetooth connectivity bug that occasionally didn’t let some devices connect, and a fix for a bug that caused some notifications not to display properly on the lock screen.
Pixel 4 (4 XL), 4a, 4a (5G), Pixel 5, 5a, Pixel 6, and 6 Pro are currently receiving this month’s update with the build number TP1A.220905.004. Later this month, according to Google, the Pixel 6a will get the September update.
