AT&T seems to be hot on the heels on T-Mobile. Following suit, they too have started providing updates for the Samsung Galaxy S4. This is the first update released in what is supposed to be a large number of updates for S4 devices.
Earlier today, it was the T-Mobile owners of the Galaxy S4 that were the first owners of the smart phone in the US to receive the software update. And now AT&T has joined them with their an update of their own for the S4. This update is a meagre 20 MB in size. It is quite a mysterious little update. No one has been able to understand what has changed yet.
The T-Mobile update made it extremely clear what had changed. Their update improved on the ISIS app as well as visual voicemail.
At least the update’s now available for AT&T customers as well. All device ownesr can easily download the update by simply visiting the settings section of the device. The entire process, including installation, shouldn’t take more than a few minutes to complete.
If you think you can open the device’s bootloader to find out what’s changed, you should wait for now. The developers haven’t yet given the update an all clear. Then again, AT&T ships the device with a bootloader that is locked. Maybe they just don’t want users unlocking it so soon after its release.
Samsung is known for releasing multiple updates for their flagship phones and may even include new features with some of the later updates. We don’t have much information about some of the smaller future updates of the phone but the next substantial update is definitely going to be the jump from to Android 4.3 or Android 5.0.
It is rumoured that Google is going to announce an update to its software. This update will be either the Android 5.0 Key Lime Pie or the Android 4.3 Jelly Bean.
