Like last month, the May security update is rolling out for the Pixel 6 series on the same day as all other supported Google devices.

Compared to previous months, there are just three fixes. Exclusive to the Pixel 6 is haptic feedback “improvements” after complaints that emerged with Android 12L. Some found that vibrations were reduced so much that they missed calls, notifications, and other alerts, while tweaking settings did nothing to increase intensity. We noted at the time:
The issue seems to be hit or miss, with some users affected, but not others. Some also claim vibrations just feel different in terms of patterns, with a softer start but the same high-end
Meanwhile, all current devices — Pixel 3a, Pixel 3a XL, Pixel 4, Pixel 4 XL, Pixel 4a, Pixel 4a (5G), Pixel 5, Pixel 5a (5G), Pixel 6 & Pixel 6 Pro — benefit from:
Display / Graphics
User Interface
Those particular issues were not too common in the grand scheme. Android 12 QPR3 next month, which has been in beta since early March, should fix more way bugs, which was the case for 12L.
The Pixel 6 series and older phones are on the same Android 12.1 build for this May update: SP2A.220505.002.
