You may have noticed that today’s announcement for the Android 7.1.2 update didn’t mention the Nexus 6 or Nexus 9. Well, that’s because neither will see the update, even as it goes final in a couple of months, Google confirmed to us this afternoon.
That’s not super shocking, since each device is past the 2-year time frame for guaranteed version updates. Do keep in mind that both will still see security patches going forward for close to another year.
If you are hanging on to these devices, they will remain secure, they just won’t see big feature updates going forward.
