Verizon began pushing out an update to is version of the Samsung Galaxy S 4 earlier this week, but at that time, the carrier hadn't revealed exactly what was packed inside the new bundle of software. Fast-forward to today and Verizon has finally gotten around to posting an official support document for the VRUAME7 update that details all of the goodies that are included.
As we expected, the VRUAME7 update for Verizon's Galaxy S 4 is a beefy one, packing in quite a few enhancements, bug fixes, and even a couple of removals. For example, the update includes fixes for a bug that would cause garbled text to appear while viewing videos and another issue in which emails would be displayed in an "extremely large" font. Also included is a fix for Isis activation issues, an enhanced Samsung Hub app, and a Wi-Fi on/off toggle in the notification panel. The full changelog for the VRUAME7 update is available at the bottom of this post.
Although this update doesn't appear to include any single, heart-stopping feature, it does pack in quite a few tweaks and enhancements that ought to make Verizon Galaxy S 4 owners happy. For example, the new Wi-Fi on/off toggle in the notification panel is something that I'm sure will get quite a bit of use. If you're rocking a Verizon Galaxy S 4 and haven't yet updated, you can check for the update manually by going into your Settings menu or by plugging your device into a computer and running the Software Update Assistant. Instructions for the latter method can be found here (PDF link).
