This week saw the release of Android 4.4.3 KitKat and shockingly, all the Nexus devices have already been updated. Nexus owners that haven’t updated their devices yet – busy week, guys? – can find factory images on Google’s website and all of the OTA ZIPs are available from Google and many of your favorite ROMs have already been updated to the latest version of Android. As for what’s new in Android 4.4.3? Take a look here. The Nexus 4, Nexus 5, Nexus 7 (2013 and 2012) as well as the Nexus 10 have all now been updated to Android 4.4.3 – and remember, if you’ve made adjustments to your /system partition, don’t try updating using a standard ZIP from Google.
