Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro Get 3 OS Updates, 5 Years of Security Patches

As we approached the launch of the Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro, we started to learn about the level of software support that Google was aiming to provide, likely thanks to using their first processor, Tensor. We were pretty sure that their new phones would get at least 5 years of security updates, but there was still confusion around Android OS version updates.

Today, with the launch of Pixel 6, we now know specifics.

The Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro will receive guaranteed version updates until at least 2024 with guaranteed security updates arriving until at least October 2026. So we do indeed have 5 years of security patches, but the OS version updates are staying as they have with older Pixel phones at 3 years.

You have to wonder if that will change as this situation evolves, as Tensor matures, and as continues development. But for now, expect 3 OS updates on Pixel 6 and 5 years of security support.
