However, it is not the anticipated Android 13 upgrade. So far, reports have come in from Germany and the United Kingdom, especially from Google Pixel 6 and 6 Pro customers, although it is not limited to just two devices.

Some users have discovered a workaround: enroll the Beta channel, which will get the stable Android 13 update, and then leave. Still, if you receive a notification for Android 12 rather than 13, it's advisable to delay the update and wait a day or two until Google fixes the problem.
