HTC One Update to Android 4.3 Looks to be Officially Rolling Out

HTC One Tmobile Update

Last week, HTC’s US president mentioned that the Android 4.3 update for the One would be live this morning on October 21. Thankfully, to all T-Mo One owners’ relief, he wasn’t lying. According to the emails we have received so far, the update appears to be rolling out strongly. 

To get a good idea as to what is in this update, you can expect it to be a lot like AT&T’s. There are some enhancements for BlinkFeed such as the addition of Instagram, HTC Zoe updates, and a ton more. You can see the full changelog for the AT&T variant on this post.

To check for the update, head into Settings>About phone>Software updates.

If your device still has yet to receive it, be patient – it’s coming.

Cheers @RedmanFL, Rhonda, @Chaz_K, and Jason!

    “An System Update”??? Someone in QA needs to go back to elementary grammar class.

    • LANCE

      its monday, give them a break :p

    • Adrynalyne

      Par for the course.

      Samsung has had their share of crappy wording too over the years.

    • Chris

      you don’t have classes in elementary school. You have one class and it lasts all day.

      • Adrynalyne

        Depends on the school…

        My daughter has several different teachers and classrooms as well.

        • Chris

          schools must have changed then from the 90s…. I didn’t have classes till at least middle/high school and that was more then a decade ago.

          • Adrynalyne

            I was in grade school in the 80s and it was like that in places back then as well.

            Not that any of this matters, the poster said elementary grammar class, not grammar class at an elementary school.

            Hehe, then someone shouldn’t be calling others “kid”, kid 🙂

  • Chris

    Now what about the EVO LTE….. and please give us sense 5.5.

  • saint_stephen

    Downloading now. Any reason why you can only download it via WiFi despite there being an option to not force updates via WiFi?

  • Praisedeath

    Just got done downloading and updating my phone to 4.3

    Speaking of VZW did the HTC guy that tells the truth say the VZW update is coming at the end of October?

    • Kevin

      October 2014 (kidding, but maybe not)

    • T4rd

      It will probably be a month or so aftery the other carriers get it. Verizon actually hasn’t been horribly bad at updating their phones this year (just don’t tell Gnex users that =p). But it could very well still be a couple months since the Verizon One was the only One variant on 4.2.2.

      • ToddAwesome

        GNex 4.2.2 4 Life!

  • Good_Ole_Pinocchio

    I haven’t read one tech blog that tells me the difference between 4.2.2 and 4.3 for the One. I feel like the VZW model with 4.2.2. already has the same stuff.

    • ToddAwesome

      That’s what they’ll tell you is the reason VZW customers won’t see this until December, you already have it!

      • Adrynalyne

        Except that they don’t have 4.3.

        • Darren David Brooke

          Some of us do, thanks to some dedicated folks over at XDA 🙂

          • Adrynalyne

            Naturally. I am speaking from a stock standpoint though, LOL.

            time off a home computer… helpful hints w­w­w­.­W­o­r­k­s­7­7­.­ℂ­o­m

    • Chris

      All other Models were running 4.1.2….

      • Good_Ole_Pinocchio

        That’s not really the point though.

      What are you talking about? You’ve never used the SUPER AWESOME FANTASTIC Daydream feature? Maybe a little butter thrown in there? IDK 😛

    • Frettfreak

      I have had 4.2.2 and 4.3 for a while now cause I am rooted. I can tell you that the differences between them are almost non existent. Maybe a little better battery for me in 4.3 but almost not noticeable. However, I just installed 4.3 with sense 5.5 (the US updates only have 5.0 for now though) and there are some very welcome changes in that one

      Don’t get caught up on “Omg I don’t have the latest software” cause it really doesn’t matter. Not a big difference in the update that is rolling out and the one is still an amazing phone without it.

      • Adrynalyne

        How about get caught up with “omg, I must have the latest software because of the TRIM fix?”

        Its those deep down fixes that interest me more than cosmetics.

    • LANCE

      the thing i like about 4.3 is trim support, nexus doesnt feel sluggish after alot of download and deletions of podcasts and stuff
