5G Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro are experiencing unexpected improvements

We can hope that the update takes care of some bugs such as the fingerprint issue that allows the in-display scanner to unlock the phone with a stranger’s fingerprint, or the problem that has the fingerprint scanner running too slowly. There is also the problem that breaks the fingerprint scanner when the phone runs out of battery life and it doesn’t turn on again even after the phone has been recharged (a factory reset will do the trick).

Perhaps the update improves the new Pixel 6 series’ much-maligned battery life which should be higher considering the capacities of the batteries on the two models. One problem that led to the two models’ ghost dialing numbers from your contacts list and 9-1-1 was recently fixed. All that Pixel users had to do was reinstall the latest version of the Google app (12.43.18 or higher) in the Play Store. You can keep checking to see if the update has hit your phone by going to Settings> System> Advanced> System update.

Story Highlights

  • Today, Google surprised Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro customers by releasing two upgrades. Models locked to Verizon received the upgrade with the build number SD1A.210817.037.A1. The update, which has the build number SD1A.210817.037 (the same as the Verizon version but without the “A1” at the end), is for Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro users worldwide. We’d be happy to share the update’s changelog with you. To be honest, we can’t wait to inform you. However, we are unable to do so because no changelist has been issued. 9to5Google was the first to notice the update, which includes the same November 5th security update as the new Pixels.

  • The OTA update has not yet hit the actual Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro models and the change in build numbers from .036 to .037 hints at a small change with the new updates. And since the non-Verizon build number is the same as the build number for Verizon locked models (except for the .A1 at the end), whatever changes have been made are undoubtedly the same for all versions of the Pixel 6 lineup. The update could exterminate some minor bugs – Surprise update hits the 5G Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro with no changelist
