Moto G53 picks up the Android 14 update with the December 2023 security patch, and there’s no information related to the January build. One of the best things about the Android 14 update for Motorola devices is, that it brings new customization options to the lock screen, with the ability to change clock font, color, widgets, and more.

Here’s your first look at the new customization features, shared by MotoFanBoy on Twitter.

Other than the customization options, you can access the built-in Android 14 features such as monochrome themes with more color options, use your phone as a webcam, a new battery settings page, even bigger fonts, improved privacy and security, and more.

The wait is finally over, you can now upgrade your Moto G53 smartphone to Android 14. If you live in Brazil, you may have already received the OTA notification, if not, you can manually check for new updates in Settings > System > System Updates. The update is currently rolling out in a staged manner and will be available to everyone in the coming days, you can wait if the update is not visible on your device.

Make sure to take a backup before updating your phone. Also, charge your phone to at least 50% before updating the device.
