Minor Nexus 7 (2013) update starting to roll out, could possibly fix multi touch issue?


Reports are coming in, that an update for the Nexus 7 (2013) is beginning to roll out to the new tablet, which is believed to possibly fix the multi-touch issue some people have been reporting with their new tablet device.

The update, JSS15R, doesn’t appear to have any user-facing changes, and it’s only one letter away from the last minor update which rolled out shortly after the initial launch back in June which addressed initial multi-touch issues as well as GPS issues.

The update is about 8MB and the update notification just re-lists the Android 4.3 features. It is believed that this update could fix the last remaining multi-touch issues some consumers are still experiencing on the updated Nexus 7.

You can check to see if the update is available by going to Settings > About Tablet > System Updates. If you can’t wait, you can download a zip file which Android Police have been provided with.

Have you received and updated your Nexus 7 (2013) tablet device with the JSS15R update? Have you been experiencing the ill fated multi touch issue?

    My Nexus 7 2013 still has random reboot issues as well.
    No rhyme or reason to it, it’ll just black screen then Google logo and reboot.
    hopefully this fixes that as well.

    Just checked, this isn’t coming up on my Nexus 7 (2013) 32GB. I actually haven’t faced any issues so far so I’m really not too keen on any updates. Makes no difference to me at the moment.

    it’s only a security fix. Why do you say it will possibly fix the multitouch issue? What are your sources to say that?
