The update, which consists of two patches, is rolling out now to compatible Google devices. With it being the Monday of the first full week of the new month, it was expected we would see these patches land today.
As has become the norm, there are two patches for this month’s Android Security Update. The first, dated May 1, 2018, consists of 7 patches, all of which are marked as High priority. The patches in this build deal with general Android items like frameworks, runtimes and other base elements to the platform.
