In the new Nexus 7 software update Google has managed solving two major flaws that affected the Nexus 7 2 device. The Web giant has tried tackling the touchscreen issues and also of that related to the GPS. Since last July owners of the tablet have been battling with these two problems mostly.
Earlier this month complaints flooded the support page of Google and other forums and blogs related to touchscreen of Nexus 7 2. The screen became highly sensitive certain times that resulted with problems in dragging the icons. Some owners even complained the screen would register double presses on the keyword and also some fake taps.
Also, in the GPS related issues Nexus 7 2 owners pointed the device sometimes goes on “Searching Mode” of its own by losing connection. Others also complained they are unable to get GPS connection at all.
GottaBeMobile tech focused website wrote, “Fortunately, it looks like Google took notice of the issue as Google has confirmed that the Nexus 7 will be getting an update to fix those touchscreen issues. The confirmation was made on Google’s product forums and the company claims that the software is rolling out to Nexus 7′s to address the problem. There is no elaboration so it’s unclear if the update is aimed directly at this issue or if there are other things on board as well.”
As of now, Google has not elaborated whether it is just a software update to address to the major issues or an Android update.
Problems to the Nexus devices are not new. Earlier, in the original Nexus 7 device complaints about bugs with the Android 4.3 Jelly Bean were reported.
