Re: Security patch update

Its a phased roll-out, not every device gets it immediately

 

It will come shortly - do not worry!

Re: Security patch update

I know that, but im wondering why i can't update when they others can do that, Especially im behind with two update im still stuck in 50.1.a.10.40 When they others with 50.1.a.10.51 more than month ago and now 50.1.a.13.83 rolling out 

That's weird and annoying

Re: End date for security updates?

Rather than pasting a rolling your eyes emoji, how about you take a stab at answering my question? I'm not complaining that I haven't gotten an update yet (which is what most of this thread is). I'm trying to find out if Sony has a policy for issuing security updates similar to their policy for software updates. From what I read in this thread, that question hasn't been asked or answered.

No more security patches for X Compact?

Xperia X Compact has reached its 2 years support lifetime in September. The last security patch received was in October and it has covered issues prior to September. Does it mean that we will not receive any further security patches for that mobile? If yes, then it's a pity because it is still working very well and to be honest I can't see any reason to upgrade.

End of line for Xperia X Compact software (security) updates?

It would appear that, after about two years post-release, we may be at the end of software (security) updates for the Xperia X Compact.

If so, it would be in line with Sony's general practice.

Is it possible for anyone to confirm this?

Re: End date for security updates?

It's likely that the X Compact will have seen its last update as of September 1st 2018. This is approximately two years after the phone was released, and is in agreement with what Sony has indicated in the past. More updates would be great, of course, but considering the phone was upgraded from Android 6 to 7 and finally 8, that's not bad.
