With Android M coming soon, the end of Nexus device support is near

Android M

Nexus devices are about to get some bad news from Google’s next version of Android. Devices starting from Nexus 4 smartphone to Nexus 7 tablets will not be getting any OS updates anymore.

Very harsh, isn’t it?

This means, we can bid farewell to the Nexus 4, Nexus 10 and Nexus 7 (2012) but luckily they would still be getting the security support. Come on, Nexus devices are still part of the family!

According to Android Police, there will be a hard deadline system which would be set up for Nexus devices :
Please note these are not official words from Google but is expected to come soon from them

• Nexus 4: Will only receive security updates till 2015
• Nexus 7 (2012 – original): Will only receive security update till summer 2015
• Nexus 7 (2013): OS update till Q3 2015 | Security Update till Q1 2016
• Nexus 10: Will only receive security updates till Q1 2016.
• Nexus 5: OS Update till Q3 2015 | Secruity update till Q3 2016.
• Nexus 6: OS Update till Q3 2015 | Security Update till Q3 2017.
• Nexus 9: OS Update till Q3 2015 | Security Updates till Q3 2017.

Is this a good move by Google? Maybe, through this we might be seeing more devices from Google’s end in the coming days.
