Good news for UK and European residents that own and use the LG G Pad 8.3, the KitKat update is coming your way an it’s coming in hot. We think that most people who use this tablet agree that it’s a little behind the times when it comes to software versions, but at least now we have some confirmation that the update is beginning. So far we have only heard that the update is starting to roll out to those users who live in the UK and certain parts of Europe, but for those of you stateside who have the G Pad 8.3 you’ll have to wait a little longer. Before the update started to hit user devices, the G Pad was operating on Android 4.2 Jelly Bean so this is certainly a nice change. Users will get all the kit kat goodies like immersive mode and transparent status bar, along with more cloud print compatibility and other things.
You may have noticed the update notification pop up in your status bar but if you haven’t you can head to the usual location to where you check for this sort of thing. You can start by navigating into your tablets settings menu then scrolling all the way down to about device, then tap on the software updates section which should be at the very top, and inside there should be a button to check for updates. If all’s well it should notify you right then and there within a few seconds if there is an update for you to download and install. If not, don’t fret as it will be probably be coming very, very soon.
As always if you’re going to begin an update for your device make sure that you have plenty of battery life to sustain the download and install time, which shouldn’t take more than 5 minutes or so. Although the download file for the update shouldn’t be that large, make sure you also have the space. We know that it’s not likely you would run out but it is possible if you’ve been loading all kinds of stuff into your devices storage. Happy updating!
