Just a couple days ago, we talked about how the Verizon HTC One M7 was poised to receive its update to Sense 6 some time later this week. Back then, we also speculated that the updates for the Sprint and AT&T models wouldn’t be too far off since HTC listed them listed them as being undergoing certification in their software updates page. Thankfully, this speculation proved to be correct, as Sprint has now begun the process of rolling out the update to consumer devices.
Today’s update comes in at software version 5.03.651.3, and it bumps up the device’s Sense version to 6. And just like the update we saw for the Verizon M7, it brings several new features that were previously exclusive t. . . READ ON »
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.
Now, this same update is about to make its way to the Verizon HTC One M7. 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. This means tha. . . READ ON »

You may recall that just a few days ago, we saw a Sense 6-laden update roll out for the developer and unlocked HTC One. And a few months prior, we saw an update make its way to the Sprint HTC One M8 (2014), which brought the new Extreme Power Savings Mode. Now, two very similar updates are making their rounds to the T-Mobile HTC One M7 and T-Mobile HTC One (M8), respectively.
First up, we have the last generation HTC One M7 on T-Mobile, which is now the first carrier-branded M7 to receive Sense 6. This OTA updates your device to software version 5.14.531.1, up from the previously available 4.19.531.10. It comes in at a rather hefty 695 MB, which is to be expected given that this brings the device to Sens. . . READ ON »

Just under a month ago, we talked about how HTC updated it software update page to display its progress in delivering Sense 6 to previous generation devices such as the HTC One M7. In the time since, we’ve seen certain variants of the the HTC One Max receive the update, and that only left us wondering when the previous One M7 would get to enjoy the Sense 6 goods as well.
Luckily, the time is now, as HTC has begun rolling out a Sense 6-laden update to developer and unlocked variants of the HTC One M7. This update comes in at software version 5.11.1540.9, and it brings most of the HTC One M8 (2014)’s software features to the M7. For a refresher, Sense 6 includes an updated UI color palate and support fo. . . READ ON »

Back at the tail end of last month, we talked about how HTC had updated its software update pages to display their progress in bringing Sense 6 to older devices. At the time, every available HTC One Max variant and practically all of the M7 devices were receiving carrier bloatware as part of the “integration” stage.
Now less than one month later, almost all of these devices are prepping for release in the “certification” phase. However, one stands above the rest in receiving the Sense 6 update first, and that’s Sprint variant of the HTC One Max.
The update, which first began making its way to consumer devices earlier today, comes in at software version 3.. . . READ ON »

Now that HTC’s previous generation flagship devices are all enjoying their official upgrades to Android 4.4 KitKat, many have begun to wonder when these devices would receive the latest iteration of HTC’s Sense UI. First seen on the HTC One M8, Sense 6 brings many key refinements to the Taiwanese OEM’s signature interface such as a heavily updated launcher, improved aesthetics, and much more.
You may recall that about a month ago, HTC’s Sense 6 update plans were leaked out for various last generation devices such as the HTC One M7. The leak’s proposed timetable was then officially confirmed for the M7, with the date being set for some time next month. Now, HTC has gone ahead a. . . READ ON »

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

Announced just last week, the HTC One M8 (2014) is nothing short of a knockout device. The new One improves upon its predecessor in practically every way imaginable. And barring its arguable camera capabilities, the M8 seems to have set the bar for the first half of 2014 with its combination of style, build quality, and performance.
Naturally, we quickly created a set of forums for US carrier variants of the device. And of course, this included the Verizon HTC One (M8). Now, XDA Senior Recognized Developer jcase and Recognized Developer beaups have rooted the device using an all-new exploit they call HTC WeakSauce. The exploit is a pre-packaged version of a vulnerability developed by jcas. . . READ ON »

Just one week ago, we took a look at a leaked video that gave viewers a quick walk-through of what was purported to be HTC’s yet to be released Sense 6. While the veracity of the leaked video is still unknown, we do know that Sense 6 is on the horizon. It’s only a matter of time before it reaches consumer devices—well, if the company doesn’t go under before then due to poor sales and perplexing legal practices.
So naturally, the question on everyone’s mind is when and if their current generation HTC devices will receive the HTC Sense 6 goods. Well, thanks to leaked documents courtesy of XDA Recognized Contributor and leaker extraordinaire LlabTooFer, we now have a better idea.
