Motorola cancels Android 9 Pie update for Z2 Force on Sprint, T-Mobile, and AT&T

Motorola said last year that it would update The Moto Z2 Force to Android Pie, along with a raft of newer phones. The Z2 Force was the last flagship phone from the company to launch on all major carriers, but Motorola isn't updating most of those. A Moto rep has now confirmed that it will only release Pie for the Verizon edition because it needs Pie for 5G Moto Mod support. Everyone else is out of luck.

LG V40 ThinQ receives Android Pie on AT&T

LG has only recently released its newest flagship, the V40 ThinQ. While the device offers some generous specs, including a Snapdragon 845, 6GB of RAM, and a triple camera setup, it sadly lacked the latest version of Android when it was launched back in October 2018. This started to change in May as the phone received Pie on Verizon. Now, V40 users on AT&T can look forward to the same update, with the OTA rolling out after slowly trickling down to some users over the past few days.

Focus Mode coming to Android Pie and Q to cut out distractions from specific apps

Living in the digital age, we have almost everything we need to keep informed at our fingertips. Sometimes, however, we need to disconnect, whether it's to get homework done or enjoy time with family and friends.

Despite the formation of a "Software Upgrade Center" several years back, the company is still slow to get new versions of Android out the door.
