Perhaps some of you might wonder why Asus is bothering in offering the Android 4.3 when the KitKat version is right around the corner. In fact, the 4.3 update is only a step forward in adopting the Android 4.4 KitKat firmware. So far, if you are interested in getting the latest firmware available for the Transformer Pad, just visit the Settings app, and in the Update option, hit the Update button. This should upgrade your tablet to Android 4.3. However, keep in mind to upgrade over Wi-Fi in order to conserve your data usage.

Since the update is offered over-the-air, perhaps some users are unable to see it on their devices. Do not worry because this is only a matter of time. Usually, an OTA update is rolled out in phases, and it can take weeks before they hit every device in every part of the world.
