Kindle Paperwhite Software Upgrade to v5.3.3
I saw an alert from Paul Biba on Twitter about this update for the Kindle Paperwhite (US) (UK Paperwhite: here)
From the Amazon US and UK update pages
"We have a new, free software update available for Kindle Paperwhite. The software update will be delivered wirelessly when connected to Wi-fi. This update includes optimizations for your Kindle’s performance, image viewing, registration and Wi-fi connectivity."
Note that keeping your Kindle connected to a Wi-Fi network will drain your battery faster. So, once you've got the update "over the air," put the Paperwhite back to "Airplane Mode ON" - which turns Wireless Off (unless they have finally put the "Wireless Off" and "On" back on the front menu as they just did for the Kindle Touch recently and removed the 'airplane' icon).
Only if you'd rather not wait - DOWNLOADING and transferring the Update via USB
US: Go to the Kindle Paperwhite Software Update v5.3.0 download section to get the instructions for the download and transfer to your Kindle via USB:
UK: Go to the same for the UK-only page
