Samsung gives Android 4.3 another try for AT&T's Samsung Galaxy S4 owners
Even if you already updated your AT&T branded Samsung Galaxy S4 to Android 4.3, another OTA update is coming your way. About a week and a half ago, Samsung halted the Android 4.3 update for the carrier without an explanation why. Not every AT&T customer was able to receive the update and on Wednesday, AT&T resent it to all of its customers with the phone. Even if you already were lucky enough to receive it the first time that it went out, the update obviously was lacking something that Samsung felt was important. Besides Android 4.3, the update includes support for the Samsung Galaxy Gear smartwatch and adds Samsung KNOX to the phone.

Perfect for the BYOD crowd, Samsung KNOX offers you a secure container that locks in a number of enterprise applications like a browser, calendar, contacts list, and email. This allows you to keep your business applications separate from your everyday apps. Remember, business and pleasure don't mix.

If you missed out on the Android 4.3 update earlier this month, the update you get will weigh in at a hefty 727MB and can be on your phone via a Wi-Fi connection only. If you already installed Android 4.3, the update will be a 28MB clean-up to make sure that everyone is running on the new firmware version, I337UCUEMK2.
