Google just posted the factory images for an updated developer preview of Android N. The update has also begun rolling out to those already on Android N via over-the-air.

The Nexus 5X and Nexus 6P have updated build NPC56W. The Nexus 9 Wi-Fi and LTE are being updated to build NPC56X. As you can imagine, the update comes in at a very small size and will install rather quickly via the OTA. If you’re installing Android N for the first time, it’s a bit more of a process, but luckily for you we have a step-by-step guide on how to flash system images. However, we recommend signing up for Google’s Android Beta Program because there’s no harm to your data.

The updated developer preview is said to include lots of bug fixes and small patches ultimately fixing problems in the first iteration developer preview. To enroll in the beta program or download the new factory images, hit the link below. We’ll have more coverage coming your way over the next few days as we take a more in-depth look at the updated beta.
