If you own an Ubuntu-based tablet or smartphone we have a good news. As Softpedia reports, Lukasz Zemczak of Canonical posted that OTA-13 files have been placed in the stable channel meaning the new OTA-13 update is ready to be shipped to users.

Ubuntu Touch OTA-10

Although the new update started shipping, it will be done in phases during the next 24 hours, so it won’t hurt to be a bit patient while waiting for it. If you can’t see the update on your Ubuntu mobile device, try checking later. Canonical stated that the new Ubuntu Touch OTA-13 update will ship to all users before the end of Wednesday, September 21.

Lukasz announced that-

“We have just copied all main OTA-13 images to the stable channels and started the phased upgrade procedures as with every release. This should take less than a whole day and all users should see the update on their phones tomorrow at latest.”

So, at least you’ll get the update; just will have to wait a bit for it. It’s still better than most Android users have to face.
