It might have been a bumpy, drawn out launch for the HTC One, due mainly to those infernal component shortages, but at least HTC is on the ball when it comes to software updates for its new flagship handset.
The 1.29.401.12 update is now ready for download in the UK for customers with unlocked HTC One’s; other customers will have to wait for their carriers to update their own handsets. The update brings with it a number of stability fixes and tweaks some of HTC’s software as well.
In addition to all the behind the scenes tweaks and patches, this update focuses on improving the HTC One’s location service, HTC Zoe, tweaks the camera’s “parameter tuning”, and also fine-tunes the Beats Audio software. Sadly the update doesn’t bring Android 4.2 to the party, we’ll just have to sit tight a little longer for that.
The download comes in at quite a hefty 229Mb, so there has obviously been quite a bit of work done. If you haven’t already received an automatic prompt to update then remember that you can click on over to Settings > About > Software updates to manually check for version 1.29.
