There are a few reasons to get excited about Android Marshmallow. Some of the new features and more technical and provide better security and control permissions of the apps you use, yet others are pretty handy, such as mobile payments, native finger print support, really handy batter management, rotating home screen, and the custom removal of icons from your status bar. All this and more coming to your Nexus 5, 6, 7 (2013) and 9 on October 5.
It’s expected that the Nexus 5, Nexus 6, 2013 edition Nexus 7, and the Nexus 9 will all start receiving the Android 6.0 software on October 5. Sadly, however, it seems several older generation Nexus phones and tablets are being left out of the picture. Lollipop will remain the latest (and last) software update we’ll ever see on the Nexus 4, 2012 edition Nexus 7, and the Nexus 10.
