Amazon Kindle Fire

Amazon rolled out the version 6.3 update for the Kindle Fire back in late-March and have since returned with version 6.3.1. And while this may seem like only a small point release, this latest update does bring some worthwhile goodies — especially for those looking for parental controls. That being said, according to details coming from Amazon, software version 6.3.1 will bring parental controls including the “ability to password-protect purchases, disable access to specific content libraries, and block access to the Silk web browser.” Otherwise, as is nice with the Kindle Fire — getting an update is as simple as doing nothing. Seriously, just sit back and wait and Amazon will roll-out the update in due time. Finally, for those who feel the need to check which version they have, you can navigate to the Quick Settings icon and from there tap More -> Device and then look for the System Version.
