It’s been only a few days since Google launched the Nexus 7 and the tablet already received a software update, which is meant to address a few issues, as well as improve the overall performance.
Although the search giant announced the Android 4.1 Jelly Bean in late June and confirmed the Nexus 7
as the first device to be released with this platform onboard, it appears that the slate is delivered with a newer version of the operating system.
Currently, Google Nexus 7 tablet is powered by Android 4.1.1 Jelly Bean operating system, but slate has just received another update, which bumps the build number from JRO03C to JRO03D.
Unfortunately, the changelog of the update has yet to be revealed. The only information offered by Google is the fact that this update improves performance and responsiveness of the operating system.
We suspect that the update also fixes a few issues found before the tablet hit shelves last week. No new features were added, but the folks over at AndroidCentral
claim there are mode technical details in the “About tablet” area.
For the time being, the update is only available for Nexus 7 owners, but if the issues discovered are present in the Galaxy Nexus, then we can safely assume the smartphone will receive the same update
in the following days.
Software update build number JRO03D is only 854 kb and is currently pushed OTA (over the air), in stages, which means not all Nexus 7 owners will get it at the same time.
Those who have yet to be notified on the update can manually check for it by going to Settings / About tablet / Software update / Check now. There’s a chance that the update won’t show on the screen, so you might want to check for it later.
