Sony promised way back in July that it would upgrade its newest Xperia devices to Android 4.3 (Jelly Bean), and now it’s making good on its word. If you own an Xperia Tablet Z, you should be seeing some software changes really soon — if you haven’t already.
Sony’s gone over some of the key overhauls in a blog post, but the update is fairly pedestrian, all things considered. Alongside the usual performance upticks that 4.3 brings, Sony says that the Xperia Tablet Z will now allow for “increased user control” and support for restricted individual profiles on one device. The company says that it’s updated all of the slate’s native apps, fleshed out its battery stamina options, and ported over its ‘Smart Social Camera’ UI from the Xperia Z1 as well.
The update is rolling out right now, and is arriving on Sony’s Xperia Z, Xperia ZL, and Xperia ZR smartphones too. It’s worth noting that Sony has already committed to bringing Android 4.4 (KitKat) to its Xperia portfolio, but given the time it took for it to roll out 4.3, Xperia Tablet Z owners might have to wait a few months before that promise is fulfilled.
