Sony Xperia Z1 and Z Ultra receiving Android 4.3 updates


Sony had promised certain Xperia model owners that the Android 4.3 update would begin rolling out this month and they have kept that promise. Sony Xperia Z1 and Xperia Z Ultra owners will be happy to know that Android 4.3 has began rolling out today.

The update will bring many enhancements including updates to Sony’s own apps such as Messaging, My Xperia, Smart Connect, Small apps, Track ID, Sony Select and the media apps, including Walkman, Album and Movies. The new update will also see the Xperia Z Ultra get access to Sony’s Smart Social Camera” feature from the Z1, which lets the rear camera use Sony’s downloadable camera apps. If you are into theming and customising your devices you will be happy to know that the update also supports downloadable themes through the Xperia Themes system and Sony has said they will be expanding this feature in the near future.

As with all updates they roll out pretty slow especially if you have a carrier locked device. Our Z1 still hasn’t received the update yet (unlocked UK) but hopefully it won’t be long. If you have already received the update be sure to let us know what you think.
