Android Pie update now rolling out to Asus ZenFone Max Pro M1 and ZenFone Max M2
Asus has started seeding the Android 9 Pie update to the ZenFone Max Pro M1 and ZenFone Max M2 smartphones. The update, which has been in beta testing for several months, was initially supposed to roll out last month but got delayed. Asus issued an apology on its Facebook page for the delay and promised roll out of Pie for the ZenFone Max Pro M1, Max Pro M2, and the Max M2 by April 15.
The update is now available for the Max Pro M1 and the Max M2 and should hit the Max Pro M2 as well in the next couple of days. While our Max M2 review unit got the update to Android Pie, it might take some time before your device shows an update notifications as it is being rolled out in batches.
As per the changelog for the Max M2, the new software version is 16.2018.1903.37. Apart from Android 9 Pie, it also updates the Google Mobile Services APIs for first-party Google apps to support the new OS version.
