AT&T HTC One M7 Android 5.0 Lollipop OTA rolling out now, One M8 to follow
AT&T is now officially rolling out Android 5.0 Lollipop to the HTC One M7, with the One M8 set to follow in a few days.
HTC has been far more prompt recently when it comes to delivering updates to its devices, but the process is still not complete. The update was already delayed for the One M7 and One M8, and carrier versions of the smartphones always take a bit longer to receive the new software.
All carrier versions of the HTC One M7 and One M8 in the U.S. should have received the update to Android 5.0 Lollipop months ago, but that obviously did not happen as not all carriers pushed the update in due time. Nevertheless, it's better late than never, and AT&T is now finally delivering the treat.
HTC's Mo Versi has officially confirmed a couple of days ago that the AT&T One M7 received technical approval (TA) for the update. AT&T has officially started rolling out Android 5.0 Lollipop for its HTC One M7 on Wednesday, April 1, pushing the update over the air (OTA). This means that it may take a few days for all devices to get it, but it's on its way.
Owners of the newer HTC One M8 on AT&T are in for some good news as well, as the update is also coming their way. In response to a user inquiry on Twitter, Mo Versi revealed that the One M8 is set to start receiving Android 5.0 Lollipop next Monday, April 6.
Both the AT&T HTC One M7 and One M8 will receive the update OTA, and the process will be gradual. Both updates will bring a slew of new features and improvements to the table, enhancing the overall performance of the smartphones. Lollipop goodies include Material Design elements, notification improvements, a new recent apps panel, new security features, neat battery life optimizations, and more.
As previously mentioned, the AT&T HTC One M7 Android 5.0 Lollipop update has already started rolling out, and should reach more devices shortly. Once you receive the update, make sure to drop by our comment section below and tell us how it fares. One M8 owners on AT&T, you'll get the treat starting next week.
