The two devices, Asus Zenfone Max Pro M1 and Max Pro M2, last got an update to the beta version of Android 10 in January 2020. Users are now frustrated and want to know when there will be a stable update for Android 10. Users are sharing their frustrations on Twitter and asking why it is taking so long and why they are not sharing the estimated time amount. The desperation seems fair as the beta update has lots of bugs.
Recently, in mid-March, Asus support replied on a Twitter post, and we came to know that the stable update is still under evaluation, and they will soon shed light on the information by the end of March 2020. It is, of course, good news for the users, but it didn’t last long, sadly. Olivier Vongxay, personnel from the Asus Mobile division, incidentally said that they don’t have any scheduled date for the release of the Android 10 update, and it may not happen anytime soon.
Not so long ago, the Asus Zenfone Max Pro M1 and M2 received updates via OTA. Unfortunately, the update comes with Android 9 Pie security patches for April. This also confirms that the delay of the Android 10 stable update is real. Now, coming to the updates, the Zenfone Max Pro M1 has a build version of 16.2017.2004.063, and the Zenfone Max Pro M2 has a build version of 16.2017.2004.075. Both the devices are updated with the latest security patch from April and also an updated APN list. The size of the updates is 143MB.
You can update your device by heading to Settings>System and then tap System Updates to check for the latest firmware. The Zenfone Max Pro M1 users can also manually get the stable April security patch firmware if they don’t want to wait and update it from OTA. Till now, there is no link for the Max Pro M2; we will soon attach the link as soon as it’s available. Till then, stay tuned and stay home.
