Pixel 6 and 6 Pro: January patch finally released

December update paused due to errors

Most recently, there was talk of “end of January”, then according to the Canadian mobile operator Fido it should be as early as next Monday, January 17, 2022: Their list still spoke of the January patch for the Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro for that very day. Among other things, a fix for the mobile phone problems that some users complained about after the December patch and much more was once promised. In the end, I was also rather happy that my Pixel 6 Pro was still up to date here in November 2021 (because OTA no longer arrived), even if this condition is rather unusual for a device from Google. But now, Google has already started releasing the factory images as well as the OTA files for the Pixel 6 and 6 Pro January patch. You can download them from the following direct links, but if you want to be on the safe side, you’d better wait until your smartphone’s update function offers the OTA update itself:


  • Framework
  • Fix for issue causing screen to unlock after missed call when no screen lock is set.
