Just days after Google started the rollout of Android 5.1 for the Nexus 4 by LG, it now looks like the 2013 LTE-enabled Nexus 7 by ASUS is also getting updated to Android 5.1 … finally. It’s only been, what, five weeks?
Android 5.1 contains a bunch of bug fixes and a few new features, as well.
Interestingly, the WiFi version of the 2013 Nexus 7 still hasn’t been updated to Android 5.1, which is strange – it’s usually the LTE versions of tablets that get held up, not the other way around! Other than that, the only other Android 5.1 update we’re still waiting for is the one for the Nexus 9, about which Google has been silent. In this case, speculation is that Google had some issues with the 64-bit processor, and it’s likely that Google will just jump straight to Android 5.1.1 in the coming days or weeks.
If you’re like me and still have that only Nexus 7 laying around somewhere, hit that update button and let us know how you like it!
