Amazon releases Pie-based Fire OS 7 for Fire HD 8 2018 and Fire 7 2019

Amazon's Fire tablets rarely receive major OS updates, mostly because they are sold as simple media consumption devices, and Netflix or TikTok doesn't need Android 10 to function. However, the company has now surpassed everyone's low expectations by delivering Android 9 Pie to two of its older tablets.

Amazon updates its 2017 7th generation Fire tablet lineup to FireOS 6 (Update: Not Nougat)

Amazon's Fire tablets are media consumption devices first and foremost, and given their extremely low prices, it's perhaps not surprising that they rarely receive major OS updates. The last Fire tablet to receive a system upgrade beyond minor features was the 2014 Fire HD 6, which was updated from FireOS 4.x to 5.x. However, it seems like Amazon's entire line of 7th-generation Fire tablets is now receiving an update to Nougat.

🔥Amazon fires off a Fire tablet fire sale with up to $30 off the Fire 7, Fire HD 8, and Fire HD 10🔥

Android tablets seem to exist in a state of permanent limbo, as an ever-smaller number of manufacturers seem interested in bringing them to market. The writing has been on the wall for some time, but after Google announced that it was no longer working to develop new Android-based tablets last year, the fate of Android tablets seems bleaker than ever. The one outlier in this product category is Amazon's Fire family of tablets, all of which are currently discounted by as much as $30 for a limited time.

Amazon refreshes Fire 7 lineup with more storage, hands-free Alexa, and some depressingly drab colors

The Fire 7 and Fire 7 Kids Edition are Amazon's most accessible tablets and they remain a decent, trusted option against other products at their respective price levels. Now, 2 years since they were last made over, the company is pushing out another refresh. While not much has changed on paper, some of the tweaks do bring more bang for the same number of bucks.
