In March, the update to Android 5.1 for the Nexus 5, Nexus 6, Nexus 7 and Nexus 10 began rolling out. The Nexus 9 was left out of the first wave, and apparently the wait is still happening despite a new update landing on the tablet now.
Today, it’s been confirmed by several different Nexus 9 owners that the tablet is receiving an update, but it’s not Android 5.1. Instead, it appears to be Android 5.0.2, and it measures in at just 23.3MB. Considering the small size of the update, and the fact the Nexus 9 was previously on Android 5.0.1, this update is more than likely geared towards security and bug fixes behind the scenes.
More than likely, this update is gearing the Nexus 9 up for the arrival of Android 5.1 at some point in the near future, too.
In case you cannot wait for the update, you can manually sideload it by downloading the OTA update from here.
If you own a Nexus 9, have you received the Android 5.0.2 update yet?
