AT&T has announced a small update for two of their tablets. The Galaxy Note Pro 12.2 and Galaxy Tab 4 10.1 are going to receive a minor update to their firmwares, so you are not going to get Lollipop yet.
Most of the changes are related with the carrier billing, so it won’t change much for you if you have a pre-paid tablet. However, if you have a postpaid account, you will now be able to charge the Google Play Store purchases to you carrier wireless bill.
In addition, there is other interesting feature: both tablets are getting the possibility to install Samsung’s “Kid’s Mode”. If you are interested in using this option, you should go to the Galaxy Essential app store and download it, as it doesn’t come by default with the update.
Finally, AT&T also announces some Google security and stability enhancements. There aren’t more detail regarding that point, but any update is always welcome.
The Android software will remain 4.4.2 for both tablets, and the new firmware numbers are P907AUCU1ANK2 for the Note Pro 12.2 and T537AUCU1ANK2 for the Tab 4 10.1.
The update requires to download about a 100MB file for both devices. Be sure to be connected to a Wi-Fi network and have the battery charged before starting the installation of the new software. The OTA notification will be rolling out in the next days. However, if you don’t want to wait for it, you can always check for the update manually.
To manually download the file, go to the “General” tab on the “Settings” menu and tab “About device”. Once there, go to “Software update” and “Check for updates”. If the new version is available, you can download the file and install it. The tablet will automatically restart when the installation is finished.
