After AT&T and US Cellular, T-Mobile is rolling out the Android 4.3 update for Samsung Galaxy S4. Just like it happened with the software updates brought by other US carriers, the Galaxy S4 Android 4.3 update will bring Galaxy Gear compatibility and other improvements and bug fixes.
The software update weighs 781MB and is being rolled out in phases, thus if you didn’t receive the system update notification yet, it might mean you would still have to wait a few more days. You can also perform a manual check, but this won’t guaranty that the Android 4.3 update is ready for your Galaxy S4 unit. In order to do so you will have to either grab the USB cable and connect the device to KIES or head to Settings > More > About Phone > System Update > Check for updates.
Given the size of the Android 4.3 update we are recommending you to download it using a WiFi network.
Besides Samsung Galaxy Gear support, the new firmware brings Samsung KNOX, visual improvements for TouchWiz UI, system performance improvements, and various bug fixes.
If you rooted your Samsung Galaxy S4 you should know that the new software update will unroot your device and that you will have to wait a couple more days until a root solution is found.
As a refresher, the Galaxy S4 comes with a 1080p 5-inch Super AMOLED screen, quad-core 1.9 GHz Snapdragon 600 processor, 13 MP camera, 16/32/64 GB microSD-expandable storage, and a 2,600 mAh battery.
