The Google Pixel 2 and Pixel 2XL were introduced at the end of 2017 and just last month, both phones received an update for Android 11 and this week they also had a new security update but come December this year they’ll be one last update and that’s it for these devices, after that they’ll be considered end of life and will have no more bug fix updates or security updates.

The same thing happened to the original Pixel last year.

In comparison to Apple, the oldest handset Apple is supporting on its latest version of iOS, iOS 14 is the iPhone 6s from 2015 and anything older than that, such as the iPhone 6 which can now only run iOS 12 will still continue to receive any critical security updates going forward.
