The November Google Pixel update fixes many bugs on the Pixel 7 and 6
Google religiously releases its monthly security updates on the first Monday of every month. Thus, the first Monday of November saw Google release an update for the Pixel 4a and above. This security patch fixes many bugs on the Pixel 7 and Pixel 6 before the Pixel’s big feature drop – Android 13 QPR1 – in December.
The company says it’s rolling out in a phased manner and has listed all bug fixes and improvements for compatible Pixel devices. Not every defect has been taken care of, therefore.
It fixes green screen flickering and improves optimization for screen power consumption to improve thermal performance in direct sunlight on the Pixel 7 series. However, it didn’t fix the Pixel 7 Pro’s motion issue, but users on Reddit say that “movement feels better” after the update. It also fixes an issue that causes the Photos app to crash when using some editing features.
For the Pixel 6 series, this security fix fixes the issue of heavy power consumption with some apps installed. Overall, the November security patch brings some decent changes to Google’s Tensor-powered smartphones.
The build number for this update is TP1A.221105.002 for Pixel 4a, 5, 5a, 6, 6 Pro and 6a, and TD1A.221105.001 (TD1A.221105.003 for US Version) for Pixel 7 and 7.
