Leaked document mentions KitKat availability on February 19 for U.S. Cellular’s version of the Galaxy S4
It looks like other carriers in the U.S. are beginning to offer Android 4.4 KitKat for their Galaxy S4 variants. The latest carrier to do so is U.S. Cellular, which is scheduled to roll out the update on February 19th. The update will be titled a “Maintenance Release”, and will be s staggered rollout, which means that not all users would be seeing the update simultaneously. However, the document does state that all users should receive the update within 10 days of initial rollout.
Sprint already started KitKat rollout for its version of the Galaxy S4 late last week, and with U.S. Cellular set to offer Android 4.4 for its Galaxy S4, other carriers shouldn’t be far away. Users should be on the latest software build to be eligible to receive the update, and making the switch to Android 4.4 KitKat removes utilities like Daily Perks and MobiTiles. If you want to continue using them after moving to KitKat, you would have to download these utilities from the Google play Store.
