Google has just released the latest factory images for supported Pixels and Nexuses including the June 2017 security patches with Android 7.1.2. That includes the Pixel XL, Pixel, Pixel C, Nexus 6P, Nexus 5X, Nexus Player. The Nexus 6 and Nexus 9 get the June patches with Android 7.1.1.
If you're going to apply a factory image or OTA file from Google to get the latest security patches, be sure to grab the right version for your phone. For example you'll notice there are separate files for the Pixels to use on different carriers like Deutsche Telekom and Project Fi. The latest images also include a specific fix for VoLTE on Rogers in Canada.
