Nvidia Shield Tablet Receives June Security Patches, Low Latency Audio Support

By 02:28 Wed, 04 Aug 2021 Comments

Remember that pretty substantial update that started going out to Nvidia's Shield Tablet K1 almost one month ago? Well, the fine news is that it's finally on its way to the original Shield from 2014. With the 4.2 software version, the Nvidia Shield Tablet will acquire Google's Android security patches for June (yes, not the ones from this month yet unfortunately). Some recent features are baked in too.

For example, the tablet now supports low latency audio, Universal Serial Bus (USB) host mode, 24-bit@192kHz stereo and 7.1 HDMI output, and Musical Instrument Digital Interface (MIDI) support over Universal Serial Bus (USB) and Bluetooth LE. There's a recent option to toggle navigation button location, and improvements to the Vulkan API, touch responsiveness, and Wireless Fidelity (Wi-Fi) and Bluetooth connectivity. Finally, do expect additional unnamed "overall stability and additional security improvements".

The update should already be rolling out over-the-air, but since this might be a staged release it could hold a few days to reach all units out there.
