Pixel Phones get September 2023 Security Patch in new update

Google releases new monthly update for Pixel Phones which also brings the latest September 2023 Android security patch. The update is based on Android 13. I know everyone is waiting for the new big Android 14 update and it looks like we all have to wait a bit longer for official Android 14 update.

Android 14 stable build was going to release early this month for eligible Pixel phones. But at the last stage the Android 14 reportedly got delayed to next month. As Google has the Pixel 8 launch event on October 4, we can expect the Android 14 official release before that.

The latest Pixel update is available to Pixel 4a (5G), Pixel 5, Pixel 5a (5G), Pixel 6, Pixel 6 Pro, Pixel 6a, Pixel 7, Pixel 7 Pro, and Pixel 7a with build number TQ3A.230901.001 globally. The build numbers are different for Pixel Tablet (TQ3A.230901.001.B1) and Pixel Fold (TQ3C.230901.001.A1). The new update build number is different for different carriers as well.

Pixel September update start on Monday and could take about a week or two for broader rollout.

This is a monthly update which brings September 2023 Android security patch to Pixel phones. There are no specific Pixel device fixes in this update. Here’s the official changelog statement:

“The September 2023 update includes security patches for Pixel users. See the Android Security bulletin and the Pixel Security bulletin for details.”

This should be the last Android 13 update for Pixel phones before the Android 14 release. To receive the update, you should be on Android 13 build, and so if you already installed the Android 14 beta, the update will not appear.

If you have an eligible Pixel phone, you will receive this update over the air. And you can install it from Software Update page in Settings.
