HTC One Android 4.2.2 update goes live in the UK, Asia to follow later this week
HTC has been rolling out the Android 4.2.2 update for its One handset over the past few days. The update went live in Taiwan last week, followed by mainland Europe a couple of days ago, and today the update has arrived on the shores of the UK.
The update is now available OTA, but make sure that you have stable WiFi connection, as the update comes in at a hefty 417MB. In a few instances, HTC One owners might also have to install a small bug fix before updating to Android 4.2.2, but the fix should be automatically installed prior to the larger update.
As always, if you haven’t received an update notification, you can force a manual check by heading over to Settings > About > Software updates > Check now.
If you’re curious about what’s included in the update, there are various changes to BlinkFeed, which will now also pull feeds from Instagram and WeChat. The phone’s Sense 5 software has also been updated with new Quick Settings features, there’s now a customizable lock screen which supports widgets, a new battery percentage in the status bar, and the Jelly Bean Daydreams feature too.
If you’re still waiting for the update to arrive in your region, all we know at the moment is that Asia appears to be next in line. A spokesperson from HTC has stated that the update will roll out sometime “this week”, so keep an eye on that notification panel.
