Android 13 is now available for Google’s Pixel phones, but if you wish to flash the update onto a Pixel 6, Pixel 6 Pro, or Pixel 6A equipped with the company’s own Tensor processor, you won’t be able to do so due to a bootloader upgrade, according to a note on Google’s developer website.
“Warning: The Android 13 upgrade for the Pixel 6, Pixel 6 Pro, and Pixel 6a includes a bootloader update that increases the anti-rollback version,” the alert states. “You will be unable to flash earlier Android 12 builds on these devices after flashing an Android 13 version.”
Furthermore, if you were a member of the Android 13 beta test group and want to get out of the cycle of rapid updates without deleting your device — which is generally required to escape the queue — now is the time to do so. Simply visit Google’s beta site and unenroll after your phone has been upgraded to the most current release version of Android. However, if you remain in the beta program, you will get early access to test releases of future Feature Drops for Android 13.
Android 13 has some excellent new features such as enhanced customization tools and a new notification reduction permission option. The update is now only available for Pixels, but it is anticipated to reach handsets from other suppliers like as Samsung and OnePlus later this year.
