Software Update Weekly Wrap - 27th March 2014

We know how much you love to have the latest software on your phone and we love to get it to you. But, we can't always get it to you as quickly as you'd like. What we can do is keep you in the loop throughout the process. This weekly wrap is our way of doing that.

Stuff you need to know about software updates

Just as we don't make the phones we sell, we don't code the software that runs on them. We do some testing to make sure they work as we expect them to, but that's all there is to our part in the process.

Software updates are complicated, and there's a lot of moving parts to take into account (enough to fill three whole blog posts). But that's for us to worry about, not you.
We'll do the hard work behind the scenes like chasing our suppliers and doing the testing. The easy stuff is letting you know how we're progressing, and that's where this post and the table below comes in.

News from overseas

All the info we have on the updates we know about is below. Keep in mind though that this just for us here at Vodafone AU.
What happens overseas doesn't apply locally, so that info on a UK release or news about Android 4.4 KitKat you read on the web won't be coming to your phone straight away.
As soon as we hear news though, this is the place to read all about it. I'll be back for you again next week so stay tuned if what you're looking for isn't here yet.

What's in the labs?

Device models which are listed in bold type indicate a change from last week:

@SimgeYıldız - you and Vodafone are in the same boat. If testing is scheduled, it means that they haven't received the update from Samsung yet.

@ÖmerErgin - The S3 was only updated to 4.3 four weeks ago. Have Samsung even confirmed their plans to bring the update to the S3?

I don't believe Vodafone Australia ever sold the Xperia M dual, @MohamedBahrawy - so they would not receive an update to it. This information is only for phones that were sold by Vodafone Australia. If you bought your phone from somewhere else you'll need to ask your supplier.
