NEW YORK: After noticing the latest Android 5.0 Lollipop plagued with a lot of bugs, Google has decided to launch Android 5.1 operating system after resolving the bug issues in February, while the OS will be widely released in June or July 2015.
Sources claimed that Android 5.1 Lollipop OS update will be released in the first quarter of 2015. Just like all other Android updates, the mobile software will be rolled out to Nexus devices first with Nexus 6 and 9 to bring critical bug fixes. Then, it will find its way to most devices in mid-2015.
The report also published the changelog for Android 5.1 Lollipop OS update. Below are some of the bug fixes that will be included to address issues:

Android 5.0 Lollipop OS was announced at the Google’s I/O Developers’ Conference and was first seen in the new Nexus 6 and 9 devices. Then, it was rolled out to Nexus and Google Play Edition devices. The operating system underwent a Developer Preview before its release, with the thought that it will sweep off major problems in the program. However, right after its release, users already noticed and complained of bugs, including installation and Wi-Fi issues.
