Google has begun pushing the first-ever update to the 2013 Nexus 7 and will reportedly fix touchscreen problems that some owners were experiencing with their devices.
Google’s Paul Wilcox confirmed the plans to release new firmware on the company’s forums:
“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.”
It’s unknown as to whether the update includes other improvements/bug fixes as well, but it would make sense if it also included the security update that was pushed to other Nexus devices yesterday. Be patient and you should get the update eventually— as we all know, OTA updates are a process.
