Asus has released the Android 9 Pie update to users of the ZenFone Max Pro M1 and the Max M2 as promised. The update is being seeded in batches and might take some time before the device shows the update notification. Android Pie update for the Max Pro M2 is expected to arrive before April 15.

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.

I am a cell and molecular biologist and computers have been an integral part of my life ever since I laid my hands on my first PC which was based on an Intel Celeron 266 MHz processor, 16 MB RAM and a modest 2 GB hard disk. Since then, I’ve seen my passion for technology evolve with the times. From traditional floppy based storage and running DOS commands for every other task, to the connected cloud and shared social experiences we take for granted today, I consider myself fortunate to have witnessed a sea change in the technology landscape. I honestly feel that the best is yet to come, when things like AI and cloud computing mature further. When I am not out finding the next big cure for cancer, I read and write about a lot of technology related stuff or go about ripping and re-assembling PCs and laptops.
