"An update with the November security patch arrived for the majority of Pixel 6 and 6 Pro owners at the end of October. Google is now releasing updated builds for both phones, with global and Verizon variants.

Update 11/17: According to Verizon, this mid-cycle update “improves the performance of your device’s fingerprint sensor.” Early anecdotes of the 14.56MB OTA are bearing that out. However, “Check for update” does not currently trigger the download for all users."

Mine was not bad before the update, but it is certainly faster and more consistent afterwards. Also very glad to see my unlocked version on Verizon pulled the correct VZ update right away.

I got it last night and it did indeed improve the FPS.

I wish they would update the camera to use the tele lens for Portrait and to use the user-selected lens for photos regardless of conditions.

So your phone isn't on the global software version now? I'm on Verizon too but don't want their software version. Right now I'm on the global software. Still haven't received the update so I was curious about your situation. Thanks

Mine never pulled the first update so I sideloaded the VZ version. This time it pulled the VZ version.
