An update is headed for the One Max from HTC on Sprint’s network, which brings HTC’s Sense 6 skin. The version number for the update is 3.02.651.5, and can be downloaded by checking “System Updates” under your Settings menu. (more…)
HTC – sticking to its word to remain transparent with future updates – has updated its software status page to show that Sense 6.0 updates for the HTC One (M7), One Max, and One Mini have reached the “certification” phase. Certification doesn’t mean that the update is on the verge of an over-the-air (OTA) release, but it does mean that HTC is moving along in its process for updating phones that was laid out to the public months ago.

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. (more…)
During its unveiling of the HTC One (M8), HTC announced today that it will update the One, One Mini, and One Max to Sense 6 by this spring. Sense 6 brings all sorts of new improvements over the the current version of Sense, so the update will likely be greatly received.
No other details were provided, so we’ll have to wait for specifics over the coming months. Just remember, HTC has already laid out its process of updating carrier models in a fancy infographic – the process is extensive.
Now that HTC’s latest software enhancements in version 6.0 of their Sense software skin are soon to be made official, it’s time to start talking about updates for older devices. The most obvious candidate for some update goodness is HTC’s 2013 flagship, the OG One. According to leaker @LlabTooFeR, we’ll be seeing the update (presumably only for unlocked and developer models) sometime in May or June. (more…)
Samsung managed to keep the Galaxy S5 out of public view until the press got a hold of the 2014 flagship and mistakenly outed it less than 24 hours before its official unveiling. HTC on the other hand, still hasn’t officially announced the “All New HTC One” (One 2014), yet we have seen the device in a 12-minute video and more images than we even know what to do with at this point. HTC sucks at controlling leaks.
In today’s set of leaks, we not only get a new video of the phone in action, but also in a series of photos that shows off its exterior trimmings and how it compares in size to the HTC One Max. (more…)
This morning, along with its event announcement for the One follow-up on March 25, HTC announced a new program called “Advantage” that is free to all owners of the HTC One, One Mini, and One Max. Think of sort of like handset protection in a way, only this is free and certainly has time limitations.
The program includes things like a “commitment to Android updates” for two years, free cloud storage, HTC’s backup service, and “hands-on” help. But where you may really find some use, is through the program’s free cracked screen replacement. HTC will replace the screen on your One, One Mini, or One Max within the first six months of ownership for free. (more…)
