We’re in September and Huawei is rolling out monthly software updates for its devices. Therefore, the company recently released September 2021 EMUI security update details as well as devices that are eligible to get the corresponding firmware.

To be mentioned, there are some noticeable changes that have been made to this list of Monthly and Quarterly EMUI security devices list. This includes the mention of Huawei Mate 20 Pro EMUI update status under the quarterly section.

This means, the Huawei Mate 20 Pro EMUI update will rollout once every three months, which is not a bad routine to follow. However, in the past, we’ve witnessed that Huawei doesn’t bound to its update schedule and sends updates anytime.

Huawei Mate 20 and Mate 20 Pro (EMUI 11) also received a new rollout recently that installs June 2021 security patch for better system security. That’s not it because the phone previously received May 2021 patch.

Furthermore, the company has already seeded new apps such as Petal Search, Petal Map, Reader, and Member Center and added a new Game Center app. This update also brought of March 2021 security patch.

However, in January, Huawei has removed all of the Huawei Mate 20 series models from the listing for regular (monthly) updates. There are many people that attempted that this device lineup will no longer receive software updates but later the confusion was cleared by the company.
