Notice on Google’s developer website reads as follows, “Warning: The Android 13 update for Pixel 6, Pixel 6 Pro, and the Pixel 6a contains a bootloader update that increments the anti-rollback version,”
“After flashing an Android 13 build on these devices, you will not be able to flash older Android 12 builds.”
“Android 13 is now rolling out to Google’s Pixel phones, but if you want to flash the update onto your Pixel 6, Pixel 6 Pro, or Pixel 6A, with the company’s custom Tensor chip, you won’t be able to flash back to Android 12 because of a bootloader update.”
Android 13 has features like tools to customize and takes permission to reduce notifications. Although currently, this is available only for Pixels and will be accessible by other device vendors like Samsung and OnePlus by the end of this year.
If you are in the Android 13 Beta test group and are unwilling to update your device by erasing it, then now is the time to unenroll by visiting Google’s beta site. But if you stay on the list, you get early access to the future feature drops for Android 13.
