Google’s September 13 Android update brings security and bug fixes to Pixel phones

Last month, Google officially launched the highly anticipated Android 13. Those who own Pixel 4 or newer phones were able to quickly update their devices to the latest version of Android. In a recent blog post, Google announced that it has released the September update for Pixel devices, indicating that the update will be rolling out gradually starting today.

Since the availability of updates depends on where you live, what device you own, and your network provider, it may take some time before Pixel owners can update their devices with the September patch. The September update bumps the Android 13 software version to TP1A.220905.004. Google said that aside from security fixes, the September 13 Android update brings lots of bug fixes.

If you’re having trouble after updating to Android 13, the September patch fixes an issue where certain launcher background activities were causing increased battery drain.

The developers also fixed an issue that prevented wireless charging mode from activating under certain conditions on Pixel 4, Pixel 4 XL, Pixel 5, Pixel 6, and Pixel 6 Pro. Additionally, the update brings improvements to fingerprint recognition and response for Pixel 6a owners.

Google also fixed an issue where some Bluetooth devices or accessories couldn’t connect and an issue where users often saw garbled lock screen notifications.
