Sony Xperia XZ, X Performance, and XZs Sees June Security Update

Good news this morning for owners of three Sony Xperia devices this morning.  The Xperia XZ, Xperia X Performance and Xperia XZs all have the June Android Security update rolling to them starting today.  The updated build is version 41.2.A.7.8 for all three devices and the OTA update is starting to roll out now.  It should hit devices over the course of the next several days.

The new firmware does not contain any new features and remains based on Android Nougat 7.1.1.  It only updates the security patch level on the devices but, given that other manufactures are still months behind, it is great to see Sony get at least three of their phones to the latest patch level.

It is important to keep in mind that this update is for the unlock variants of these phones.  If you have one locked to a carrier

(which shouldn’t be the case here in the US) then you will have to wait for your carrier to roll out the update which could take several more weeks.

As always, if you want to force your phone to go look for the update, go to Settings>About Phone>System Updates.  Since the update is still in the process of being rolled out, it may take a day or two even with manual checking for it to hit your phone.
