The Google Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro introduced last week will start shipping tomorrow, and once you are done setting up yours, you’ll have to install a software update on your smartphone to get all the advertised features, including Magic Eraser.
The new build comes with firmware version SD1A.210817.036.A8 for Verizon customers and SD1A.210817.036 for the rest. The update will be downloaded automatically in the background once the device setup is complete, but if it doesn’t, you can try checking for it manually by navigating to the phone’s Settings > System > System update menu.

However, Google says that “due to deployment timelines and staged rollouts, some updates may not be available until 10/28,” so if you receive your Pixel 6 before October 28, the update may not be available for download.
The Google Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro are powered by Google’s in-house developed Tensor chip, but the latter packs a higher-res screen, higher-res selfie camera, a 48MP telephoto unit, and a bigger battery. The Pro model also has UWB support.
