SwiftKey 3 update adds new themes, languages and fixes
In the tech industry, things are usually announced well before they’re released, but on Tuesday morning it became apparent that that’s not always the case.
Google simultaneously announced and released the latest update to Android 4.1: Jelly Bean, bringing the OS to version 4.1.2.
The update is available now for Google’s flagship Nexus 7 tablet, and should roll out to eligible devices throughout the day.
The Asus-made Nexus 7 was the first device to run Jelly Bean in early 2012, so it’s fitting that it should be the first device to receive the latest update, as well.
Improvements in 4.1.2
The latest Jelly Bean update isn’t a major overhaul, but it does bring a few small improvements that Nexus 7 users will want to take advantage of.
As far as features go, the 31.3MB update adds a new landscape mode for the tablet.
What’s more, Android 4.1.2 reportedly comes with a number of minor bug fixes and overall stability and performance improvements.
Waiting for Jelly Bean
Google may have updated Jelly Bean on its flagship tablet – the Nexus 7- but other devices, like Samsung’s Galaxy S3, are only just now receiving Jelly Bean in the first place.
Plenty of devices haven’t received the 4.1 update at all and are still languishing in Ice Cream Sandwich land (which, to be fair, sounds like a delicious place to be).
TechRadar reached out to Google to find out whether any other devices will soon receive the 4.1.2 update.
