Does anyone know when my Nexus 7 tablet will get the Android 4.4 Kitkat update? I am assuming that the Nexus 7 (2012) model will get this at some point – it’s not that old just yet!!
I saw your post on the new features and think it will be quite a useful one unlike some of the past updates that have offered very little or nothing to me.
See my post on your same Q on the N4. The same blog mentioned the N7 and whilst it didn’t specifically mention the versions, I’m hoping the 2012 model will get it too.
Yes, 2012 and 2013 models will get it. Generally Google has supported the last couple of Nexus generations but actually Android 4.4 has specifically been designed to increase backwards compatabiilty.
So 4.4 will work on phones / tablets that never got 4.3, 4.2 etc..
Strangely, my wife’s new S4 was on 4.2 but updated last night to 4.3, so we’re neck n neck (mine is an N4). I think I saw they’d said the S4 would get 4.4 too. So “next few weeks”, both should update to KitKat plus my 2012 N7. Happy days.
