A Kindle user interface overhaul

Amazon’s Kindle e-readers get new software updates regularly, and they’re mostly of the nondescript, invisible “performance improvements and bug fixes” variety. But the most recent operating system update (version 5.13.7) is rolling out now, and it refreshes the device’s user interface for the first time since 2016 or so. Amazon says that redesigns for the Home and Library screens, which are mostly untouched in the current Kindle update, will be coming “later this year.” More here.

For many of you this will seem about as unexciting as tech can be, but for those of us who adore our Kindles these small changes can mean a lot.
