T-Mobile has announced that several of their Nexus devices — including the Nexus 4, Nexus 5, and 2013 Nexus 7 — should be getting Android 4.4.3 starting today. As expected, the update isn’t big and doesn’t bring much in the way of new or exciting features. It’s mostly a bug fixer that should do a decent amount of house cleaning.
T-Mobile’s release notes don’t go into too much detail about said changes, though, so we’ll have to wait for some coders to get their palms greased and dive in head first. Those with the Nexus Nexus 4 and Nexus 7 should be looking for version KTU84L, while the Nexus 5 should be getting KTU84M.
The updates are identical in size at around 54MB each, and you should be able to come up from almost any prior version (as long as you haven’t rooted or installed custom ROMs, obviously). The staggered OTA process is expected to run between June 2nd and June 9th, after which you’ll be able to apply it manually if you so please. Head to the Settings > About Phone menu to check for updates, but not before making sure you’re on WiFi and charging your battery up to at least 50%.
