The new Nexus 7 has been in the news a lot this afternoon, but we have one more as it appears a small 8MB update is rolling out to the WiFi Nexus 7 as we speak. It’s still the same version of Android, and there appears to be no major changes, but we’re hearing this could still be an update aimed at fixing those touch issues.
Software update JSS15R is hitting the Nexus 7, and it’s so small that it shouldn’t take but a few moments to download and install. While 8MB isn’t very big, that’s a lot of code that could potentially fix plenty of minor issues. Some reports of ongoing touch issues are still present, and we’ve heard a few about Bluetooth problems as well.
While we still don’t have official details or a changelog from Google, you can get the new update right this moment from the link below. This seems pretty minor, but it’s new, so you’ll want to grab it the moment it is available. I’d start checking for updates on my Nexus 7 right about now.
The JSS15Q update didn’t solve those screen issues, so hopefully this small change to “R” has a few tweaks worth adding. As soon as we know more details we’ll update. If you’ve received the update and have noticed a difference (for better or worse) drop us a comment below.
