Samsung has started rolling out a new software update for Galaxy S4 owners in India earlier today. The update brings the same set of goodies including Apps to SD support, which were released for GT-I9505 variant in Germany and select other countries a few days ago.
This new OS update brings a lot of improvements, enhancements and fixes over the initial firmware of the Galaxy S4. With this new update Samsung increases the phone memory and better utilizes the expandable memory. It addresses memory issue by allowing users to “move apps from phone memory to SD card” and increasing the available storage to 9.23GB.
Other enhancements includes a "semi-transparent" notification bar, and a new toggle that lets you turn Smart Pause on and off easily, new camera firmware, purple effect while scrolling, enabling recording HDR Videos, new Icons in Settings and secure boot status.
The update is 365.67 MB in size and you can update your device via Samsung KIES or via OTA (Over-The-Air). To check update go to Settings of the phone and check About –> Software Update.
