Both the first- and second-generation Nexus 7s and the Nexus 10 are to get an Android 5.0 Lollipop update on November 3 — the same day the software debuts on the new Nexus 9 — according to sources familiar with Google’s plans. The search giant appears to be focusing on Wi-Fi only devices first, before bringing Lollipop to the Nexus 4 and the Nexus 5.

Google has finally rolled out its latest Android 4.4.4 KitKat update, which sports build number “KTU84P” to the 2013 Nexus 7 LTE, almost four months after it was made available to the Wi-Fi only model. The release contains important security fixes, as well as a fix for the Android camera bug that was responsible for severe battery drain.
