Good news this morning for those of you who have the HTC One M9 on the Sprint network. HTC has confirmed that the Android Nougat 7.0 update has been released by Sprint with updates starting today. The updated build is 4.27.651.4 and weighs in at a hefty 2.25GB. HTC is suggesting that the update will take about 20 minutes to complete and will reboot your One M9 several times during the process. It is recommended that you have at least 35% remaining battery or, better, having your phone plugged in to AC (but don’t unplug it during the upgrade process) to upgrade. Given the size of the update, Wi-Fi is the best option to download.
Once you have it downloaded to your phone and installed, you will have all of the benefits of Nougat including multi-window support, improved Doze and improved notification shade amongst many other refinements. You can read my overview of Nougat 7.0 for more details.

T-Mobile continues to be one of the best carriers in the US when it comes to device updates. The latest proof point is the 2015 HTC One M9. The carrier has released the Android Nougat update for customers who have the phone on their network. The update is based on Nougat 7.0 and has the January Android Security Update. It comes some two months after the unlocked One M9 received the Nougat treatment.
The update is just over 1GB in size so those of you with the One M9 will want to download it via Wi-Fi and you can expect the total download and upgrade time to take about 30 minutes. Once you get it installed, you’ll have all the Nougat niceties along with some improvements to HTC’s Sense UI.

HTC took to Twitter yesterday and clarified the target dates for the Android Nougat update to their devices. The news is mixed in that it looks like there is still going to be another couple of months before we see the first device updated but, to their credit, the company is being upfront about things. According to the Tweet, the HTC 10 will be the first of their devices updated and that will happen in Q4 of this year.
Probably more disappointing is that the One A9 will not be updated until after the older One M9.

Great news from HTC for those of you have a One M9, One A9 or are considering a HTC 10 as your next device. All three of these will be seeing the Android N update when it is released by Google. The information came from HTC’s main Twitter account and it makes HTC, outside of Google, one of the first manufactures to commit to the new version of Android.
The tricky bit, of course, is when exactly it will be available. HTC did not make that clear in their Tweet nor did they in replies to it.

After months of delays, the Android Marshmallow update for the HTC One M8 and One M9 is finally coming to those on AT&T. HTC’s Mo Versi tweeted yesterday that the software update had finally been approved and would start hitting devices tomorrow, May 12th.
While it is not expect that every M8 or M9 will see the update tomorrow, it should come to you as an OTA update over the course of the next week or so. Once you have it, all of the goodness that is Android Marshmallow will be there for you.

Owners of the HTC One M9 on Verizon are now starting to see the Android Marshmallow update roll to their devices. The updated software is version 3.37.605.7 in Verizon numbering convention and brings the M9 up to Android Marshmallow 6.0. If you remember, HTC rolled out the Marshmallow 6.0 update to the unlocked variant of the M9 back in December. Those devices have subsequently been further updated to Marshmallow 6.0.1 so yes, this update from Verizon is behind in security updates and features. Still, it’s here at that is very much a positive sign.
