Sense 6 Heading to Verizon HTC One M7 This Week, AT&T and Sprint Models Undergoing Carrier Certification
Earlier this month, the Developer and Unlocked variants of the popular HTC One M7 received their official updates to Sense 6. Not long after, T-Mobile updated its variant to Sense 6 as well. Both of the aforementioned updates brought features that were previously exclusive to the M8 over to HTC’s last year flagship. This included features such as Extreme Power Savings mode, an updated UI, a few updated first party apps, and a refreshed BlinkFeed interface.

While there’s no official statement from Verizon just yet, HTC has now updated its update support page to state that the update is complete.

Verizon HTC One users looking to get in on the update discussion should head over to this thread.
