lg-g-pad-83If you happen to be a Verizon subscriber and are rocking to the LG G Pad 8.3, then you would be pleased as punch to hear that an update has just been released by the mobile carrier – although this happens to be a minor update. This particular update would remove support for the Redbox Instant app (which some would welcome with open arms, of course). The Redbox Instant app happens to be a streaming video service, which was a joint venture between Verizon and Redbox, and the partnership shut down in October this year on a permanent basis. After installing this minor update, the LG G Pad 8.3 will be able to support 4G LTE roaming in selected markets, while there were other issues that users had grappled with where powering up the device is concerned, is now a thing of the past.

Just to make sure that everyone is on the right page, this particular update would deliver the software version to VK81023A, and do take note that this has absolutely nothing to do with the Android 5.0 Lollipop update. This particular tablet happens to be a relative newcomer where Verizon’s range of devices are concerned, where it was introduced to its base of subscribers from October 7th onward.
