Google has just released the latest Android KitKat  version 4.4.3, which is only a minor update of the previous 4.4.2 version – a few security enhancements here, a couple bug fixes there.

As usual, the update is first available only for Nexus devices – Nexus 4, 5, 7 and 10 – but only as factory images for now. Over-The-Air update notifications should start rolling out pretty soon though. But if you want Android 4.4.3 on your Nexus now, you can flash the appropriate factory image onto your Nexus device.

Be aware that the factory image is about 500 MB in size. So unless you have plenty of bandwith to spare, you are probably better off waiting on OTA update roll outs. Also, if you choose to go the flashing route, remember to backup all your important data as flashing your device will wipe off everything.
