Samsung starts updating the 10.1-inch Galaxy Tab 4 to Android 5.0.2 Lollipop

Samsung starts updating the 10.1-inch Galaxy Tab 4 to Android 5.0.2 Lollipop
After updating both the 8.4-inch and the 10.5-inch versions of the Galaxy Tab S to Android 5.0.2 Lollipop a few weeks ago, it looks like Samsung has recently started updating the 10.1-inch versions of the Galaxy Tab 4 to the same Android version.

Samsung has started pushing the Android 5.0.2 OTA update to both the Wi-Fi only and the LTE-enabled versions of the Samsung Galaxy Tab 4 10.1, although the rollouts for the two versions initiated in different corners of the world.

Your tablet will notify you when the update is available for download, as the device will regularly check for the availability of new software updates. To manually check for the new update, you can head over to Settings -> General -> System Updates -> Update Now.

The 5.0.2 Lollipop update will bring a number of improvements to your Galaxy Tab 4 10.1, such as a new TouchWiz UI with Material Design elements, a new notifications panel, a new multitasking menu, as well as a new lockscreen with improved notifications. Under the hood, the Lollipop update also comes with the usual range of performance improvements and bug fixes.

Now that the largest tablet in the Galaxy Tab 4 series is being updated to 5.0.2 Lollipop, the 7-inch and 8-inch flavours will probably start receiving the Android update in the near future as well.

I was wondering the same thing. I heard the update was released for my model of Tab 4 here in Canada but anytime I went through the menu to 'update software' it kept telling me I had the latest firmware installed already. But when I hooked the phone up to my PC via USB kies prompted me to update the firmware right away. I'm not sure whether kies updates are considered over the air or not. I was under the assumption the OTA updates were pushed out by a wireless carrier over the 4G/LTE data network, but since my tab is WiFi only I guess it's sent out OTA straight from Samsung. Can anyone clarify this for me?
