It all started back in October with a rumor suggesting that Samsung could soon limit 3rd party accessory support with their line of Galaxy devices. Fast forward to last week when, after the KitKat update began hitting some Samsung Galaxy Note 3s, users began experiencing issues with 3rd party S-View style cases for their phablet. This, of course, this didn’t sit well with anyone, sparking an outcry amongst Note 3 users who assumed foul play.
Today, Samsung is formally addressing “software compatibility issues” caused with KitKat and 3rd party accessories. Samsung told Ars Technica today in a statement that the problem has been successfully been “identified” and they’re working on a new update to patch everything right up. Samsung reminds customers that they’re committed to squashing any issues that might come from using either OEM or 3rd party accessories with their devices. Alls well that ends well? Let’s wait for the update first.
