In total, the updated operating system will be making its way onto 10 devices within the Xperia line of devices. The Xperia TX will have to wait until next month to get its update. For the remaining seven devices, no official plans have been confirmed, though it shouldn't be too much longer of a wait.

Some of the changes owners can expect are listed below:

  • "More intuitive" versions of its Sony Media apps, Walkman, Album and Movies
  • More options for personalization, including a redesigned home screen
  • Better on-device search
  • Improvements to the camer, such as a revised viewfinder and new auto-scene setting
  • Google Now service

Device owners don't have to do anything as their devices will notify them when the update is available.
