Due to the US trade embargo, Huawei has to do without the Google apps on its new phones and tablets. Instead, the devices run with the so-called Huawei Mobile Services (HMS). The company is now distributing a security update for a number of these models.

As the fan magazine HuaweiBlog reports, the MatePad Pro and the P Smart 2021 will receive the September security patch. With this, the manufacturer closes over 20 vulnerabilities in the operating system. Three were classified as "critical" and the rest as "high".

With the P Smart 2021, the patch is around 200 megabytes, with the MatePad Pro around 550 megabytes. You should download the update via a WiFi connection. Instructions for installing the Android updates can be found in the linked text.

As HuaweiCentral reports, Mate 40 series smartphones are also receiving an update. This is currently only distributed in China, users in this country have to be patient. It is unclear which functions are included in the new firmware. Unfortunately, Huawei has not published a changelog.
