Amazon has come up with a new software update for the Kindle Fire and as it usually is, the latest version 6.2.1 is all about making the Kindle Fire to perform even better. However, the update also makes access to root privileges a thing of the past and might even make things a bit tough for those who have already rooted their tablets.
For those who have the standard Android build on their Kindle Fire tablets, the update comes with quite a few goodies. Like apart from the overall enhancement in performance of the tablet, scrolling is now even more smooth. This apart, users will now have the option to remove books, apps or other content from the carousel of recently used items on the home screen. Another nice feature that the update brings along is that it will now be possible to password protect Wi-Fi connections. The last bit should be particularly liked by parents, more so if they have tech savvy kids to deal with.
In all, the latest update for the Kindle Fire makes sure the tablet remains fresh and its appeal intact.
