Google slips information about its release date

Google has not yet confirmed the release date of the final version of Android 13. The Mountain View company suggests, however, that its new version will be available in September.

Still available in beta, Android 13 is gradually correcting its latest bugs. Google is getting closer to the stable version and the successor to Android 12 should not take long to show up. On its site, the Californian firm published the “Android security release notes” and suggests that the next major version of the mobile operating system will be launched in September. “These Android security release notes contain details about security vulnerabilities affecting Android devices that are addressed as part of Android 13. Android 13 devices with a security patch level of 2022-09-01 or later are protected against these issues (Android 13, as released on AOSP, will have a default security patch level of 2022-09-01)”says Google.

As expected, the finalized version of Android 13 should land for the start of the school year. However, this message does not necessarily indicate when the deployment will begin on Pixels. Last year, Android 12 was first released on AOSP (early October) before landing on Pixels two weeks later.
