LG Optimus G Pro getting updated to KitKat on AT&T

LG Optimus G Pro

LG admittedly hasn’t been very good with updates. Like, at all. But the company hasn’t abandoned its older phones entirely, as the AT&T LG Optimus G Pro is now getting its update to the latest version of Android. With KitKat, users will be getting the new white look in its status and navigation bars along with performance improvements from the lower system requirements. Here’s the full changelog:

As you can see, it isn’t a huge update by any means. KitKat was meant to improve performance and give a cleaner look to the status bar, but brought very few other improvements. Still, it’s a solid update that will make your device feel fresh. If you have an AT&T Optimus G Pro, head to Settings, check for updates and tell us if you get it!
