Yesterday Google announced new update for Android Jelly Bean, Android 4.3. It is a minor update giving better performance and stability and for tablets it brings a new feature called ‘Restricted Profiles’. You get the idea from the name what ‘Restricted Profiles’ is about, on Android 4.2 we saw you can add different profiles if more than one person is using the tablet and now on Android 4.3 the owner of the device can limit content of other profiles like, limited access to apps. The update has already started rolling out to Galaxy Nexus, Nexus 4, Nexus 7 and Nexus 10.
On Google+ a community called NEXUS, a user posted he got the update on his Galaxy Nexus, Nexus 4 and Nexus 7. According to the user compare to Android 4.2.2 he found the new update Android 4.3 on Galaxy Nexus is significantly faster, Nexus 4 was already faster and is still faster and Nexus 7 feels more optimized. Later he posted a bug he found in the camera which I am unsure about – maybe something went wrong while flashing factory image or maybe it’s a wrong factory image from different source.
If you don’t want to wait for the update, you can get the factory image from here.
Just a day before the announcement we all saw the photos of new Nexus 7 on Reddit and pre-order on BestBuy.
