HTC Support Page Updated to Show Sense 6 Update Status

With the launch of One (M8) from HTC, the company began a process which they hope is much more transparent for customers, allowing buyers of their devices to see just what stage an update for their device is in. For example, an update for any HTC device has five steps – evaluation, development, implementation, certification, and then a push of the update to customers. 

The same support page that showed the Android 4.4 update for HTC’s variants of the One (M7), has now been updated to show the same status updates for the Sense 6 update which is set to hit nine different devices here in the US.

As it stands, eight of the nine devices have reached the integration step, meaning that after HTC fixes any bugs they find, they can then begin to certify the update through the various channels, namely wireless carriers.

All variants of the One (M7) are listed for the Sense 6 update, as well as variants of the One Max and One Mini. If you have a stake in any of these devices – meaning you happen to own one – check the status page every now and then to see just how far along HTC is with its progress.

    I would love to see HTC and Motorola succeed phenomenally. It’s just amazing that HTC in spite of disappointing profits still continues to put so much energy into make exceptional products and customer service.

      Couldn’t agree more Kris been an HTC fan from the beginning hopefully they can keep doing their thing and come up with something great

  • RustyTechGuy

    Sounds great can’t wait to see the update.

    Did anybody else get an update for the Verizon HTC One M8 this morning? I’m trying to see what was updated

  • atc_tech

  • Ismail Akram

    Will motion launcher will make its way for HTC ONE M7? or its just for M8

    Yeah Yeah….

    • LionStone

      Oh Yea! Right on man for the heads up!

  • bawboh

    Ugh, looking at the full graph of how they roll out updates just makes me hate the carrier locked model more and more…

    • Hershel

      but at least HTC is being open about it,. unlike samsung, lg or motorolla…. thinking its cute to hide this stuff from their customers.

  • Hershel

    HTC is on a roll. A d people cry and become hisyrical that they don’t update the phones.

    • Tyler

      There is a difference between then and now. Talk to one x and one x+ users.

      • Eric R.

        And also talk to One S, DNA, EvoLTE, Incredible S and IncLTE, TB, and OneV users. Oh and the Rezound

        • hkklife

          Don’t forget the Rhyme, Droid Incredible 2 or the Incredible 4G LTE! The Inc2 and Rhyme were absolutely positively promised to get ICS alongside the TB. It never materialized. But the best insult is to those poor souls (like myself) who bought an HTC tablet (Flyer, EVO View, Jetstream-+$700 ON contract!

          I saw Jetstreams still being offered for sale well into 2012 at AT&T corporate stores. Imagine having one of those turds and STILL being under contract for it right now!

          • Guest

            Both the Incredible 2 and the Rhyme have ICS. It’s just a matter of whether or not the carriers chose to push them. For example, Bell, in Canada, refused to push out the ICS update for the Incredible S, but you can just find the RUU and upgrade manually.

          • Hershel

            I used to have a jetstream. good idea, but specs sucked and att’s control was even worse

        • Hershel

          EVO LTE did get an update, but it was a manual update and you had to have a windows based computer to download it.

        • LionStone

          DNA in Certification for KK…will be 2 major updates. TB, 2 major updates whereas the Charge only got 1 and it was a newer phone by a couple of months? Other than that, the others, like all others, typically get 1 major update. So even then, HTC has done pretty good.

      • LionStone

        Yep and the difference between then and now is much improved! That is what we really care about. And what about the others? Well except Moto.

  • Simon Belmont

    Yeah. The Wi-Fi calling is slowing down the T-Mobile one, as usual.

    But, I bet they’ll still get it out before Verizon. But I hope Verizon folks don’t have to wait too long, either.
