AT&T Galaxy S4 KitKat update scheduled to begin rolling out [update: live now]
Update: As evidenced by quite a few comments below, the AT&T Galaxy S4 KitKat update is now starting to rollout. Keep in mind that it could take at least a few days to reach everyone.
While the web buzzing with the news of yesterday’s Samsung Galaxy S5 announcement, the Galaxy S4 might be feeling a little left out. Luckily, the GS4 is at least getting a little love from AT&T, in the form of an update to Android 4.4 KitKat.
Now it’s important to note that the update hasn’t actually started rolling out just yet, but AT&T has posted up details for the update and says it will start sending it out tomorrow, February 26th.
So what’s new here? The biggest change is that your handset is moving past Jelly Bean, and jumping over to Android 4.4 KitKat and all the new features that come with it. The change-log on AT&T’s page also mentions it will add the ability to drag and drop to uninstall or disable applications and the update should also bring call reliability improvements. Beyond this, we expect at least a few bug fixes and hopefully we’ll see some minor TouchWiz changes like white status bar icons and even some changes to the lock-screen — as hinted by a previous ROM leak.
We’ll be sure to update this page as soon as we receive word that the update has actually started to roll out to folks. Of course, you should keep in mind that even if the update starts tomorrow as planned, it could take days before it reaches all AT&T users.
