AT&T Rolls Out Galaxy S III’s Android 4.3 Update
Samsung may have suspended its rollout of Android 4.3 Jelly Bean for the international Galaxy S III due to a number of frustrating issues, but that hasn’t stopped AT&T from releasing the update to customers in the United States. It’s rolling out now over-the-air, and it brings lots of new features and improvements.
AT&T’s release comes almost three weeks after Samsung first released the international update, but just a couple of days after T-Mobile began its rollout in the U.S. The update is identical to all the others — Samsung doesn’t provide us with change logs, unfortunately, but here are some of the things you can expect to see:
- Galaxy Gear support
- TRIM support
- New Samsung keyboard
- Updated GPU drivers
- New user interface elements matching those of the Galaxy S4
- Lock screen widgets
- Driving mode
- The ability to move apps to SD card
- Sound & Shot
- New Calculator, Clock, Contacts, Gallery, and Music apps
- Updated S Voice
The update weighs in at just over 623MB, and you can download it either directly to your device, or to your Mac or PC using Samsung’s KIES software.
