Review device configuration settings to confirm the Google Android device has the most recently released version of managed Google Android 13 installed.

This procedure is performed on both the EMM console and the managed Google Android 13 device.

In the EMM management console, review the version of Google Android 13 installed on a sample of managed devices. This procedure will vary depending on the EMM product.

On the managed Google Android 13 device, to determine the installed operating system version:


1. Open Settings.
2. Tap "About phone".
3. Verify "Build number".

If the installed version of the Google Android 13 operating system on any reviewed devices is not the latest released by Google, this is a finding.
