The Google Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro.

Google is rolling out Android 13 to Pixel devices, but one group of Pixel users will not be able to revert to Android 12 after the update. 

According to a notice posted on Google's developer website, Pixel 6a, Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro users are unable to downgrade to Android 12 after the Android 13 update. This is due to the bootloader update in Android 13 that increments the anti-roll back version for these Pixel devices.

Android 13 introduced several key changes and updates which we've summarised the key highlights in this article.
