Nexus 7 (2013) Getting Firmware Update To Fix Multi-Touch, Also GPS?
Two of the biggest flaws affecting the Nexus 7 (2013) are being addressed by Google in no time, tackling the touchscreen issue and GPS issue will be fixed by a firmware update. Google is rolling out an update to fix it today.
The search giant has confirmed that it is now rolling out an Android 4.3 update with build number JSS15Q. The new update for Nexus 7 (2013) is being rolled out over-the-air (OTA). The problem started appearing only after the second OTA JSS15J was installed on the Nexus 7 (2013).
Google’s Paul Wilcox confirmed in a post in the Google Product Forums that the update to Android 4.3 will specifically address the device’s touchscreen response issues.
“As a couple of you have mentioned, there’s a new system update that’s started rolling out for your Nexus 7s. This update does address the touchscreen issues discussed in this thread. If you’re one of the people experiencing touchscreen issues, please let us know how it’s going after you’ve received and installed the update.” Paul Wilcox writes on Google forum.
There’s no word on whether this particular software update will address those GPS performance issues, but users who have received the software update are leaving positive reviews.
If you have also received the update and it resolves both the issues then do leave your comments below.
