Weighing in at a little over 437 MB, the firmware update pushes the build number of the device to 1.21.617.3 and adds a fix for the pressure-sensitive buttons on the U12+. The squeeze functionality will thus be a little more responsive and so will be the Edge Sense gestures that users can customise to their liking.
