Asus Transformer TF101 OTA Update adds Face Unlock

A small OTA (over the air) update for the original Asus Transformer TF101 is rolling out in the US and Canada. The biggest addition the update brings is Face Unlock, which was missing from the TF101 till now even though it’s a default feature in Ice Cream Sandwich Android 4.0.

Here’s the complete list of changes:

  • Improves system stability
  • Improves Email App stability
  • Improves MyNet stability
  • Improves MyLibrary stability
  • Add System Bar Lock: Lock the system bar when playing games
  • Add Email App new feature: Email download size/Thread/Out of office notification/Mail Sync schedule

As you’ll notice in the list above, there seem to be a lot of stability fixes included in the update, which make the update important enough even if you think that face unlock isn’t really that useful. You can get the update by heading into Settings » About tablet » System Firmware Update on your Transformer. Let us know what improvements you notice in the update, in the comments below.
