Sony Xperia ion update
The subject of the Sony Xperia ion‘s Android 4.1 Jelly Bean update was first brought up about eight months ago, when Sony released an official list of handsets scheduled to get the highly-desired software change. Today we finally get to see the long-awaited update become a reality.

According to reports first gathered by Xperia Blog, the official Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean update for the Xperia ion — which is build version 6.2.B.0.211 — is now available at last. Sony has already started pushing out the software upgrade for Xperia ion users, which means they will finally get to enjoy the features that are already available in many of Sony’s other Xperia phones, not to mention the current flagship Sony Xperia Z.

If you have a Sony Xperia ion and your handset still hasn’t been updated to Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean yet, your next move should be to get on the companion software as quickly as possible. Some users have reported that the update took care of the occasional lag while navigating certain parts of the operating system, while others say that some lag-related issues still haven’t been fixed.

In any case, the best way to find out what the new software really does is by experiencing it for yourself. Talk to us in the comments if you have any problems (only those related to the phone and the software, of course).
