  • Google will begin distributing security updates for Pixel smartphones and tablets in October 2023.

  • These updates contain the security bulletin for all Android devices and a separate one specifically for Pixel devices.

  • The updates are being released in conjunction with the Android 14 update.


Google recently released the Pixel 8 series and subsequently introduced Android 14. They have also made the October 2023 Android security update available for older Pixel phones and the Pixel Tablet.

Earlier this week, Google provided a detailed overview of the changes included in the October 2023 Android Security Bulletin. Along with the generic security bulletin, Google has also released additional security patches for its Pixel devices in the form of the Pixel Update Bulletin. All Pixel devices that are currently supported will receive an update to the 2023-10-05 patch level, which will include fixes from both bulletins.
