October 2021 Android Security Update Now Available for Google Pixel Phones

Android 12 should be here any day now, but being the first Monday of the month, and 12 only hitting AOSP today, is instead releasing what should be the final 11 monthly security patch. All of the currently supported Pixel phones, from the Pixel 3 up through the new Pixel 5a, are all receiving this new Android 11 patch for October.

Currently, we are seeing new 11.0.0 files for Pixel 5a (RD2A.211001.002, RD2A.211001.001), Pixel 5 (RQ3A.211001.001), Pixel 4a (RQ3A.211001.001), Pixel 4a (RQ3A.211001.001), Pixel 4 and Pixel 4 XL (RQ3A.211001.001), Pixel 3a and Pixel 3a XL (RQ3A.211001.001), and Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL (RQ3A.211001.001).
