A sweet tweet from HTC America’s president Jason MacKenzie, brings some good news to U.S. and Canadian owners of the HTC One and those Verizon customers who own the HTC DROID DNA. By the end of next month (known as September on your calendar), both phones will have been updated to Android 4.3. That means both models will leap frog over Android 4.2
Android 4.3 will allow multiple users to create restricted profiles. Restricted profiles means that you can decide which features to allow others who use your phone, access to. If you don’t want your kids using the browser, or the camera, you can block them from doing so. The update will also allow you to have your notifications sent to a device connected to your phone via Bluetooth. Like a smartwatch, for example. And hardware geofencing allows your phone to save battery life by performing location computation in the hardware rather than the software. These are just a few of the changes you’ll find on Android 4.3 and frankly, the multiple accounts will probably be the one you will notice and care about the most.
