Last week when Verizon announced that its carrier version of the One (M7) was receiving the update to Sense 6.0, one of our readers commented, “Your move, AT&T.” While we cannot confirm or deny that today’s news is a direct cause of that comment, AT&T’s update is rolling out to devices across the country.

HTC might have moved on to this year’s One (M8), and maybe even a more “Prime” device, but HTC still has promises to keep. In addition to pledging to update some of their older devices to Android 4.4 Kit Kat, it also said that Sense 6.0 was a priority as well. Today, we have gotten word that Verizon’s One (M7) should be receiving that update later on this week. (more…)
Unlocked and Developer Editions of the HTC One (M7) – that would be last year’s HTC One – are receiving their update to Sense 6.0 today, according to HTC. If you recall, HTC’s USA president committed to an “end of May” time frame for Sense 6.0 updates, so they are technically a little ahead of schedule. Good job, HTC.
The update includes things like new color coded themes, personalized font styles, Extreme Power Saving Mode, new gallery and camera interfaces, and BlinkFeed improvements. It’s a massive update that really only brings goodness to your phone. (more…)

This is a quick comparison between the basics of HTC’s Sense 6.0 and Samsung’s newest version of Touchwiz. (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…)
