Nexus 7

Everybody loves software updates, no matter how minor they are and Google is rolling out an update for the Nexus 7 (2013) which measures at just 8MB. This is still Android 4.3 and the only change is the build number, which now reads as “JSS15R”.

There’s no updated changelog, with the old Android 4.3 changelog still intact so we don’t know what the update is addressing exactly, but since it’s such a small update it’s probably just a few bug fixes and security updates. This might also fix the multi-touch issues that some users (myself included) are still facing even after the last update was supposed to fix the issue.

So without further adieu, head over to your Settings>About tablet>System updates and start mashing that “check for update” button. Note that it looks like Google is once again taking the staggered update approach so it could take a few days for the update to roll out to your device.

Have you received the update? Notice anything different?
