The Pixel 6 and 6 Pro upgrade from May focuses mostly on haptic feedback.

The Pixel 6 series will receive the May security update on the same day as all other supported Google devices, just like last month.

There are fewer three fixes this month than in prior months. After complaints with Android 12L, haptic feedback has been improved only for the Pixel 6.

Amplifications for haptic feedback in specific scenarios and application cases *2. At the same time, the following features are available on all current Pixel 3a, Pixel 3a XL, Pixel 4, Pixel 4 XL, Pixel 4a, Pixel 4a (5G), Pixel 5, Pixel 5a (5G), Pixel 6, and Pixel 6 Pro devices:

Screen / Graphics
Fix for problem that sporadically causes the display to come on without user input *1. User Experience

Fix for problem that, under certain circumstances, causes the launcher to crash after a device restart *1. In the big picture, those particular problems weren’t all that frequent. The upcoming release of Android 12 QPR3, which has been in beta testing since early March, could fix more way flaws compared to 12L.

The same version of Android 12.1—SP2A.220505.002—is running on older devices and the Pixel 6 series for this May update.
