The other day the Optus Update page advised that the Jelly Bean update for the Samsung Galaxy S III had been approved and was awaiting distribution by Samsung, well it appears that this rollout has now begun with many users tweeting us to advise they have received the update on their phones.
The update takes the software version from 4.0.4 Ice Cream Sandwich to Android 4.1.1 Jelly Bean and is rolling out Over The Air now. In terms of release these OTA updates are generally staggered however the update is usually available immediately via KIES. If you would like to check on your device go to Settings > About Phone > Software Update > Check for update and see if it is ready.
