The October patch for Android 11 includes many bug fixes for the Google Pixel phones, which received the update to the new platform in September. The patch is arriving now for Google Pixel 2 and later models.
First, if you are rocking a Google Pixel 2 smartphone or later, you may have already received the notification for the October patch. If not, you can look for the update by heading into Settings, System, Advanced, and System Updates. On my Pixel 3a, the update weighs in at only 19.78MB but for different countries, carriers, and devices, your mileage may vary.
In addition to the security patches, for October 2020 Google has published a number of fixes for the Pixel family of smartphones. These include fixing the auto-rotate function, and a fix for inadvertently disabling incoming call notifications. For customers using the Google Pixel 4a, there are improvements to auto-brightness “under certain lighting conditions” and improvements to touchscreen sensitivity when using a screen protector. Some users have reported the auto-rotate icon disappearing when changing the screen rotation, and the good news is that Google have found the icon and it’s back where it belongs.
The new software build reference is RP1A.201005.004 for all devices apart from the Google Pixel 4a, where it’s build number RP1A.201005.006. If your Pixel phone has one or two bugs following the release of Android 11, it’s probably worth your while to manually check and install the update.
