Latest ZenFone 6 update fixes Asus Launcher & Settings bug, improves fingerprint unlock (Download link inside)

Asus released Android 10 update to the ZenFone 6 earlier this month. The company had been testing the OS for weeks before dishing it out to one of its best-ever smartphones yet.

The update wasn’t the most perfect out there despite the long wait. Early adopters have had to deal with several issues, but the most annoying of them all must be the one that trips Google Play Protect and Google Pay.
