SAN FRANCISCO, April 13 – An upcoming change to the Android operating system could make native system software updates on the Play Store, according to the 9to5Google website. This would make system updates as easy to manage as applications installed on a smartphone or tablet.

9to5Google discovered that this method allowed system updates to be updated by searching the source code of the next version (14.5.52) of the Play Store APK file. The idea is to simplify things for the end users because they usually go to the Play Store to download new applications and update others, rather than to delve into the system settings. Google has not confirmed this information.

The Play Store could also get an overhaul of the interface, including a simpler design and new fonts.

The current method requires users to go to "Settings" and then click "System" and "System Update" to search for and download the latest software updates from the Android system. – AFP-Relaxnews
