Verizon is pushing the October 2019 security patch update for the Moto G6 (XT1925-12). Apart from the security level step-up, the new update with build PDSS29.118-15-11-2 brings nothing else in its changelog. The Moto G6 will step up from the August/September 2019 patch to the October 2019 patch. It is one of those regular maintenance rollouts that brings minor enhancements to the device.
This software update with the latest month’s patch is currently rolling over-the-air. While you can wait for the PDSS29.118-15-11-2 update to drop into your device on its own, a few others may try to catch it manually. Since OTAs follow a routine of a phased rollout, users have to patiently wait for the automatic update to roll in.
