"Effective January 14, 2014, a software update for the Samsung Galaxy S 4 Active (SGH-i537) will be available to AT&T customers. This software package updates your phone to Android 4.3, and includes multiple improvements," reads the carrier's announcement.

The update will come along with all of the goodies that Android 4.3 Jelly Bean has to offer, including the drag-and-drop feature to disable or uninstall undesired apps, as well as support for the Samsung Galaxy Gear smartwatch, among others.

Here's the complete changelog, as listed by AT&T:

  • Android 4.3 OS upgrade (http://www.android.com/versions/jelly-bean-4-3/)
  • Drag and drop to uninstall or disable applications
  • AT&T Signature Experience preloads such as Kindle, Lookout, City ID, Password Keeper, Games and AT&T Mobile Protection

The update package weighs in at a hefty 721MB according to AT&T, and will only work via Wi-Fi. In other words, make sure you have a strong and stable Wi-Fi connection before starting the update download.

As previously mentioned, the update has already started to roll out on Jan. 14, but it might take some time to reach all Samsung Galaxy S4 Active devices. If you can't see the notification on your display yet, just give it some time and it should show up. If you can't wait for the notification, you can always manually check for the update. To do so, go to your device's Settings > About device > Software update > Check for updates.

On the other hand, if you have already received the notification and proceeded to download and install the Android 4.3 Jelly Bean update on your AT&T Samsung Galaxy S4 Active, drop by our comment section below and let us know how it fares. The new version of Android should bring some notable improvements to your device, but buggy versions are never completely out of the question.
