New updates are being added at the bottom of this story…….

Original story (published on June 19, 2023) follows:

Every month, Google releases security patches to eligible Pixel phones. These updates are usually available at the beginning of the month or can be expected on the first Monday.

Having said that, Google released June 2023 update on June 13. However, it has been about a week since the update was released yet some Pixel users on Verizon, T-Mobile, and Google Fi are still waiting for it.

But for some reason, the June 2023 update, which brings a host of improvements and bug fixes to Pixel phones, seems to have been delayed for a section of Pixel users this month – yet again.


It’s worth noting that this isn’t the first time the update has been delayed. Some Pixel 6 users also reported the same issue at the time of March feature drop update and April 2023 security patch.

Pixel June update delayed

Reports (1, 2, 3, 4) have emerged that Pixel users on Verizon, T-Mobile, and Google Fi are still waiting for the June 2023 update to arrive on their devices.

Here are some reports for reference:


I have a 6A and a p7p, both of which I bought unlocked from the Google store. Two days ago my 6A that has no sim in it got the update but the p7p that has a Verizon sim in it still has not, anybody else having this experience, maybe a Verizon thing? (Source)

It’s June 16th and still no June feature drop for Google’s current flagship phone. What’s up with that? My husband got his for his P6A yesterday. (Source)

While some users have been lucky enough to receive the update, others have been left wondering when they will be able to enjoy the latest improvements and fixes.


Moreover, the official update page for Verizon indicates that the June update is available for Pixel 6 devices. However, for Pixel 7 users, the page still shows that they are stuck on the May 2023 patch.

This disparity in update availability has left many Pixel 7 users feeling frustrated, as they eagerly await the arrival of the June update.

Unfortunately, Google support has not yet acknowledged this issue, leaving users in the dark as to when they can expect to receive the update.

For now, we can only recommend users to stay patient and wait for the update to be available since they often roll out in batches.

Furthermore, you can keep checking for the update in the software update section in your phone’s settings.

Rest assured, we will keep an eye on the latest developments and inform you as and when we come across anything noteworthy.

Update 1 (June 20, 2023)

04:20 pm (IST): Users who are eagerly waiting for the update to arrive can sideload the stock software. It will have no carrier elements and will receive faster updates.

Update 2 (June 21, 2023)
