A new Android 4.4.1 KitKat update is available for a Nexus device to install manually, after the Nexus 5, Nexus 4 and Nexus 7 (2013) LTE got their upgrades the other day.
Nexus 7 (2013) owners can now grab their respective Android 4.4.1 update and go through the update (see Source link below), as long as they’re not afraid of performing the software upgrade themselves. The Android 4.4.1 update measures 55.3MB and comes directly from Google’s servers.
As you probably know, the Android 4.4.1 update will bring various improvements to the Nexus 5 camera including faster autofocus times and generally improved camera speed. And that’s exactly the kind of features the Nexus 7 (2013) Wi-Fi should also receive, in addition to the usual bug fixes and improvements that come with incremental updates.
We don’t advise you to manually install the update, especially if you’re not comfortable going through the procedure, but rather wait for it to roll out over the air. However, if you need instructions on how to update a Nexus device manually to KitKat, check out our detailed coverage here.
