0

Since Google decided to go with monthly android security updates things have turned out well, the bug fixing rate is now better than ever and its time for the June 2016 updates. The factory images have already been posted on the developers portal and as you might know they will now be accompanied by OTA’s too. You can download and go for either or simply wait for the update notification to show up on your device (it will take some time).
