Android updates on Nexus devices

Below are update and support periods for Nexus devices. 

Android version updates

Nexus devices get the latest version of Android directly from Google.

If you bought your device from the Google Store, updates will typically reach your device within 2 weeks. If you bought your device elsewhere, updates can take longer.

Nexus devices get Android version updates for at least 2 years from when the device first became available on the Google Store. After 2 years, we can't guarantee more updates.

Security updates

Nexus devices get updates for security issues documented in our Public Android Security Bulletins.

Nexus devices get security updates for at least 3 years from when the device first became available on the Google Store, or at least 18 months from when the Google Store last sold the device, whichever is longer. After that, we can't guarantee more updates.

Telephone or online support

Nexus devices get telephone or online support for at least as long as they get security updates. After that, we can't guarantee continued support.
