Google has not missed its appointment with the August 2022 Android update: on the first Monday of the month, a new security update arrives, published along with the security patch that solves the operating system vulnerabilities discovered over the last few weeks. This month’s security bulletin can now be consulted on the Android website.
August has now come alive, and Samsung, one of the most attentive companies to the issue of updates, has already kicked off the release of this month’s update for the various smartphones in its portfolio.
The company has managed to get ahead of Google and, over the last few days, has already updated some of its models with the August 2022 patch. However, it should not be forgotten that manufacturers have access to the patch a few days before Google publishes it in its newsletter, so it is not surprising that some companies manage to get ahead.
