After the Nexus tablets and smartphones have received the Android 5.0.1 Lollipop update, it is finally the Nexus 5’s turn to receive it. Many reports of the update crashing Nexus 7 devices and causing frequent app restart on Nexus 5 surfaced after it went live, and with this new version of Lollipop from Google, most of these issues – if not all – should be resolved.
Before today, it was a little concerning why the Nexus 5 wasn’t receiving the Android 5.0.1 Lollipop update. The older Nexus 7 (both 2012 and 2013 models) devices and the Nexus 9 actually got it first, with the update for the Nexus 6 and Nexus 4 following suit. Nexus 5 owners can now breathe a sigh of relief as the update for the device is finally made available.
There is no official word from Google on why the update for the Nexus 5 took much longer than the rest of its siblings. More tech-savvy owners of the Nexus 5 can head on over to Google Developers’ website to download the factory image. Everyone else will just have to wait for the OTA to roll out.
