HTC One M7 to Receive Sense 6 Update by End of May

You may recall that a little under a month ago, XDA Recognized Contributor and leaker extraordinaire LlabTooFer posted a tentative update schedule for current generation HTC devices. Last generation’s flagship HTC One (M7) was among the devices covered in the leaked documentation, and the device was slated to receive the Sense 6 goods some time between May and June.

Now, President of HTC America John Mackenzie has gone ahead and confirmed the rumor, stating that the update will arrive to consumer devices by the end of May. This confirmation comes courtesy of Jason’s Twitter account, which read:

Reminder that Sense 6 will push to current HTC One users by end of May. #htcadvantage

As elaborated later in the Twitter comments thread, this update will be rolling out to devices in both US and Canada. That said, it’s unknown at this time whether this includes carrier-branded devices or unlocked and unsubsidized devices only.

By now, most HTC One M7 users reading this will already be on an AOSP-derived KitKat ROM or a Sense 6 port from the M8, but it’s still nice to see official support by way of OEM updates. Are you eagerly awaiting the Sense 6 update or do you prefer to live in a world of non-Sense ROMs? Let us know in the comments below.

NVIDIA Launches SHIELD Android TV at Google I/O

Since Android TV was announced at Google I/O 2014, there has been very little activity in the way of hardware releases for the platform. Consumers had a very small selection to choose from in the form of the Nexus Player and Razer Forge TV, or they could buy a new Sony or Phillips television with Android TV on-board. These options, however, seemed a bit tepid at best; the Nexus Player was extremely limited in nature, offering very little storage, weak...

Devs Beware – Automatic Backup Privacy Risks

One new feature of "Android M" (speculation on potential names welcomed on the back of a postcard) which gained little attention at Google I/O so far was the introduction of a new, automatic backup feature for application data. Obviously, it's still early days yet, though you can download the developer preview (if you're brave!), so we can't be sure of the final implementation, but there are a few gotchas here that developers should be aware of. Automation The first is...
