Huawei Nexus 6P USB Drivers – Download Now

With this post, you would be able to properly install latest USB drivers on your Mac or PC for the Huawei Nexus 6P. Nexus 6P is the standard Google wants every hardware manufacturer to follow. It has high-end specs and a very good design. Nonetheless, this is all useless if you can’t transfer data correctly to your Nexus device. With USB Drivers, your computer would be able to properly recognize your phone and allow you to effortlessly manage it. Also, third-party software packages will also be able to recognize it correctly. Below, we have attached download links and a proper step-by-step procedure on how to install USB drivers for your Nexus 6P.

The download link present in our tutorial will guide you to a package which is universal to all Nexus phones including the new Nexus 6P.  Due to security issues, a phone cannot be simply connected to a PC and act as a USB. If you have a lock code, you would first have to bypass that on your phone, then connect it. The USB drivers on the PC end allow you to transfer files properly without any hassle. If you are looking for fastboot drivers, we have a link for that as well. You won’t have to install the full SDK just to get to the fastboot. We have an entire section full of Android USB Drivers, but we have that covered as well for you below on how to download and install the drivers.

Huawei Nexus 6P USB Drivers for Windows

Like we said, the USB drivers for Nexus 6P are bundled in the device itself. For transferring media content, photos and other files from your phone, you need to have a micro USB cable (preferably the one you got with the phone) for the phone.

  • Connect your Huawei Nexus 6P with the computer using that USB cable.
  • Now wait for the computer to recognize the device.
  • Several drivers including the modem, MTP service etc. will be installed automatically.

By default, your phone is set to “Charging only” when you connect it to the computer with your USB cable. To be able to transfer files between your PC and phone, do the following steps to enable the storage option:

Step 1 – After connecting your phone and installing drivers, pull down your notification area.

Step 2 – Tap the “USB charging this device” option.

Step 3 – Now select “Transfer files” from the various options show on your screen.

Once finished, you will see a new media device in My Computer. You can now transfer photos, music, videos or any other files from and to your Nexus 6P USB memory.

Huawei Nexus 6P USB Drivers for Mac

Connecting your Nexus 6P USB memory on a Mac is also easy. If you have been a Nexus device user on a Mac previously, then this Nexus 6P should be no different for you. Make sure you have a Nexus 6P and a micro-USB data cable (preferably, the one that came with the phone). Follow these quick steps:

  • Download Android File Transfer and install it on Mac OS X.
  • Connect your Huawei Nexus 6P with the USB cable.
  • Wait for the phone to get connected and drivers to be installed.
  • Android File Transfer window will automatically open up with your internal phone memory directories.

If Android File Transfer fails to start, that is because you might have to enable the “Mass storage” option in your phone:

Step 1 – After connecting your phone and installing drivers, pull down your notification area.

Step 2 – Tap the “USB charging this device” option.
