AT&T customers with the Samsung Galaxy S4 are receiving the Android 4.3 update

Wednesday night belongs to AT&T customers who own the Samsung Galaxy S4. The update, containing Android 4.3 and support for the Samsung Galaxy Gear smartwatch, has started rolling out OTA. Build number JSS15J.1337UCUEMJ9, weighing in at a hefty 719MB, is being sent out in phases. If for some reason  you don't receive it today or tomorrow, don't start panicking. You will receive the update before too long.

Besides Android 4.3 and support for Samsung's smartwatch, the update adds Samsung KNOX to the phone. The so-called "sandbox" is perfect for those who bring their own device to work. It offers a "secure container" with a browser, calendar, email and contacts list. Pressing on the KNOX icon activates the secure security suite. At the end of the business day, press on the icon again and your personal apps become accessible.

The AT&T variant of the Samsung Galaxy S4 is the second carrier branded model of the phone to receive Android 4.3. this month. Just a few short days ago, the update went out to U.S. Cellular customers totin' the current flagship Android phone.

I still never received the 4.3 update for my Sprint S4, which is rather disappointing. I've been waiting since the 30th of October for it and haven't gotten it.

Weren't there other benefits to the 4.3 update for the International version of the Galaxy S4? Supposedly improved color reproduction and the kinky performance hiccups being ironed out from 4.2.2?

It's a minor annoyance, but the 4.3 update got rid of the "Hide Applications" feature in the setting menu. I can't find it anywhere now.

A lot of the users from the internet reported that after updated to from Android 4.2.2 to Android 4.3, they having some issues that not happened before update such as "S Translator" not translate, light trail effect not showing at lock screen, light trail not following the finger at the lock screen, Air View not working at the lock screen anymore to pop-up preview the SMS messages.....etc...etc. Come on Samsung why not you tested everything then only release it to user ? It seems it is to rush to release the update.

AT&T has reported that with Samsung they have pulled the 4.3 update due to issues as well as rollout problems, they said they will let us know when the update resumes. I find it funny that my mothers S4 got updated and mine was interrupted halfway through.
