    The rollout of Android 5.0 Lollipop proceeds at a fairly even clip. We’ve already seen the OTA Android update deployed to Nexus 7 and Nexus 5 devices the world over, as well as Nexus 4 users, and the HTC One M8 and M7 GPE. Today brings news of a different kind of Lollipop update, though. According to Android Pit, Android 5.1, the first major update to Lollipop, will come sometime in the first quarter of 2015.

    Android 5.1 will bring some significant improvements, addressing concerns about battery life, as well as improved RAM management, and fixes for certain bugs and instabilities. It will also see the return of silent mode, which has been noticeably absent from 5.0. With the current version of Lollipop, you can lower the volume to vibrate but not beyond that to completely silent.

    Android Pit says this Q1 release time frame comes from two separate sources “close to the matter” and has the full changelog, too. Check it out:

    Silent mode added after missing on Android 5.0
    General improvements in system stability
    Improved RAM management
    Fixes for sudden app closures
    Improved battery management
    Excessive consumption of network devices when used Wi-Fi fixed
    Issues with wireless connections fixed
    Problems with Okay Google function solved
    Notifications problems solved
    Some sound problems experience by certain devices fixed
    Other improvements and changes
    Changes in the Material Design color palette (after users complaints, possibly for a higher version though)
    Google hasn’t commented on any of the above, so it’s possible there could be more coming with 5.1. March (the end of Q1) would bring us to around the five month mark since Lollipop’s debut, which seems about the right time for a big update. The dust has had time to settle and user feedback will be plentiful. We’ll keep you posted on anything we hear related to Android 5.1!

    "fixes for certain bugs and instabilities"

    How about not adding any doo-dads and fixing ALL the "bugs and instabilities" first? They think we won't notice how bad it's bleeding if they put a prettier Band-Aid on it?

    Because the few articles you are talking about are all bouncing off the same click bait rumor on android pit. There's a reason why sites like android central and android police aren't reporting this.

    Its hilarious. Just read the fixes. Its pooring fanboy wishlist, not reality. I'm not saying we won't get a big maintenance release soon, its just not this one...

    All these companies do it like this, they can't just fix all the bugs first.

    IIABDFI (If It Ain't Broke...). You'll regret it. Leave it waiting. 5.0.1 is a patch of the terrible 5 (Lollipop) 'upgrade' and, as such, is a partly fixed OS.

    It's possible that a new Nexus device that came with 5 / 5.0.2 pre-installed runs okay, but an OTA install over a "perfectly great running" OS would seem to be A Bad Idea, based on others' posts - and my own experience.
