When it comes to providing monthly security updates, Sony is one of the best Android manufacturers out there that roll out security patches to its flagship devices as soon as possible. The company's Xperia X-series devices have already received November security patches released by Google last month, and now it appears that some of the Xperia Z series smartphones will also be updated with the latest security patches, the Xperia Z5, Xperia Z4 Tablet, and Xperia Z3+.
A new software update is now rolling out gradually for the Xperia Z5, Xperia Z4 Tablet, and Xperia Z3+, the new update comes with security patches released by Google for the month of November and will bump the firmware version from 32.2.A.0.305 to 32.2.A.5.11. The November security update will fix dozens of vulnerabilities and exposures found in Android OS, so it's highly recommended that you update your device with this new security update to make your device secured against possible security threats. The update seems to be rolling out for all the variants of the aforementioned devices (carrier variants not included), including dual-SIM variants, across multiple regions so if you're owning one of the supported devices, keep an eye on an OTA update notification. Since this is an OTA rollout, which is often carried out in stages, the update might take some time to land on your device so don't worry if you're not seeing any update notification on your device yet, meanwhile, you can also check for an update manually by navigating your device's settings. While the size of this update is not yet known, it's recommended that you connect to a WiFi network when you download this update so you don't end up incurring additional mobile data costs. Also, make sure that you have at least 50% of battery power remaining before you start downloading the update.
Speaking of the Android 7.0 Nougat rollout for the Xperia devices, the company has already started rolling out Android Nougat for the Xperia XZ and the Xperia X Performance, and the good news is that the Xperia Z5, Xperia Z3+, and the Xperia Z4 Tablet are also on the list of devices which will get the Android Nougat update.
