Some Pixel Owners Are Getting An Update For Android 12 Instead Of 13 By Mistake

Scribbled Arrow

Google updated supported Pixels to Android 13. However, some users do not see that update.

Several users on the r/GooglePixel forum report receiving an Android 12-based update.

This is not a minor update, but it's a large 2GB download. 

According to the reports, it appears to be an update from early July that contains the July security patch and a fix for a GPS problem.

It's not the Android 13 update people expect.  There have been reports so far from Germany and the UK from Pixel 6 and 6 Pro owners. 

However, it isn't limited to those two.  It appears the problem doesn't happen often, but it is something you should be aware of if your Pixel has one.

If you see a notification for Android 12 rather than 13, it is best to pause the update and wait a few days until Google fixes the problem.
