Verizon has begun rolling out software updates for the new HTC 10 – updates that are meant to bring improvements to the camera software as well as tag along additional fixes.
HTC recently confirmed that HTC 10, HTC One M9 and the One A9 will be receiving Android N when Google avails it later on this year. Well, don’t be too excited as this has nothing to do with the new OS, or perhaps the Taiwanese company has begun clearing the path in readiness for the upgrade. HTC 10 users will bring their handsets to v1.19.605.22 following this update and since the update comes as an OTA, don’t expect it to reach all units at the same time.
According to a post made by the company’s VP of Product Management, Mo Versi, the new HTC 10 update on Verizon will bring along “camera improvements and additional fixes.” While the “additional fixes” bracket remains to be a mystery, you can expect to get improvements with respect to Wi-Fi connectivity as well as fixes to bugs.
This is not the first update that HTC 10 has received over the past month. Earlier this month, the company rolled out a similar update, but this was only accessible to unlocked devices. Probably, this is the same update that has now begun hitting carrier-based models, starting with Verizon. The unlocked version’s update brought improvements related to Wi-Fi as well as camera performance, which are the same improvements reportedly coming with the latest update targeting Verizon users.
Another thing you should expect to get from the said update is this month’s security patch. Even though it is coming in at the end of the month at a time when Google is about to come in with June Android security updates, it is always better to get it late than to never get it at all.
The HTC 10 software update starts rolling out today. So, watch out for the OTA notification and if you can’t just wait for one, head to your device’s Settings to check for its availability manually.
