Android 13 is a low-key follow-up from Google but an important 12L

With the arrival of the second Android 13 developer preview, we’re getting a better idea of ​​what’s coming in the next major release of Google’s mobile operating system. This is the software that will ship on the best Android phones of the coming year.

After Android 12, which was a huge deal visually for the entire platform, and Android 12L, which overhauled Android for larger screens, Android 13 may seem like a relatively minor update. After all, Google has spent most of the past year getting rid of bugs in Android 12 and finalizing the 12L.
