Google delays Android 5.0 Lollipop OTA Nexus updates to November 12

Google Android 5.0 LollipopNot everyone is ready to buy a new Nexus device to get their mitts on Android 5.0 Lollipop. With the Google Nexus 9 now on sale and stock of the Nexus 6 trickling in sporadically (and selling out just as quickly in the U.S.), owners of older Nexus devices across the world were hoping that Google would also release Lollipop OTA Nexus updates this week. It now appears that patience is the order of the day and that they’ll need to wait just a bit longer.

When asked by users as to when the update will roll out, Google is only providing an ETA of sometime “in the coming weeks” via its @goglenexus Twitter account. Fortunately, Android Police’s Artem Russakovskii has got a more specific date. On Google+, he revealed that a source has revealed that the rollout is set to begin on November 12. The inital launch date was pushed out “due to some outstanding bugs.”

It’s not clear if the updates will roll out to the Nexus 4, Nexus 5, Nexus 7 and Nexus 10 simultaneously. Google will likely use a staggered rollout as it has done in the past but it’s not clear if this will apply to all devices at once or if some Nexus devices will be updated sooner than others. Owners of the LTE versions are also facing longer waits if past rollouts are any indication of how this one will go.
