The Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow update, which the company released last week, patches a bug that made clocks on Android 6.0 devices slower.

The CMOS battery sits on your computer’s motherboard and provides power to the Complementary Metal Oxide Semiconductor (CMOS) chip.

The CMOS chip stores information about the system configuration, including the date and time.

On the company's forum, more than 400 users reported the issue.

The issue was first reported on October 8, just three days after Google rolled out Android 6.0 Marshmallow to older Nexus devices.

For example if your CMOS battery dies, your computer will act like it has Alzheimers and you have to introduce it to its hardware components (via the BIOS) every time it boots.

That’s just as annoying as a virus that plays tricks on you or a bad time zone setting that messes up everything from the clock to your email client’s time stamps. Be sure to also check out Jeffry’s article Tina is a freelance writer and editor, with a background in science and sustainability.

Nexus device owners who haven't received the update can go to company's website and obtain the flash image of the latest version.

Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow also comes with a range of new emojis.

Alternatively, some users note that rebooting the device also helps as the device supposedly fetches a new network time.

There are many things that most people take for granted.
