July 2021 security patch for Mate 20 X and MediaPad M5

July 2021 security patch for Mate 20 X and MediaPad M5

Today we have two devices for you that will ship with the July 2021 security patch. The Mate 20 X from Western Europe and the old MediaPad M5 10.8 WiFi. Yes, that’s right, Huawei has given the tablet another current security patch, although the update support for this has already expired.

However, this is not a big surprise for those who visit us regularly. Huawei has again provided a security patch to several old devices in recent weeks. As with the others, this is just a bonus, even if it’s mentioned first in the changelog. The real reason for the update is the application shortcuts in the second part. With this, Huawei would like to draw attention to its applications, which were developed as an alternative to popular US applications.

As with my other devices that received this app update, no Huawei apps folder appears. Links can be found individually in the app drawer. Here I can only guess that the folder is only available in standard view. In the drawer view I prefer, the links are, as I said, only visible individually and alphabetically in the drawer.

The update for the Mate 20 X, on the other hand, is only special because it finally is again for the local model. Here too, after a long dry spell, there is a monthly patch, which is also the July 2021 security patch.

Consequently, the Mate 20 X’s firmware isn’t great either. Humble 284 MB you have to download. But even with the MediaPad M5 10.8, the download is not particularly large, despite the extensive changelog, only 373 MB. This is because these are only shortcuts for the apps, not the apps themselves. If you want to try them, you need to download them like any other app, the shortcut is just a help.

As always, you can download and install updates via WLAN or mobile as long as you have a stable connection and sufficient data volume.

The July 2021 security patch for both devices only includes the changes mentioned in the changelog; no new features or apps. It also doesn’t change anything in the Android and EMUI version. No update issues have been reported to us yet. However, a current backup is always a good idea.

As soon as an update is rolled out, only one percent of activated devices are delivered within the first 24 to 48 hours. This is so that the device checks can be observed first and checked for errors. The updates are scheduled to take place in a period of one to two weeks.
A complete supply of all the devices in question is done in steps of 25% over 50% up to 100%. That can take up to eight weeks.

Have you already received the update? Did you get an update for another device? Yes!? Then send us screenshots, either via email or ours Facebook Community.

Make sure all changelog details can be seen. To do this, simply display all the text with the small arrow on the right side. If you have a lot of text, you can also use multiple images.
