Last month, HTC’s Jason Mackenzie revealed that the HTC One would be skipping Android 4.2.2, in favor of a direct jump over to Android 4.3 in September. It was also revealed that the Droid DNA would also be getting Android 4.3 around the same time.
September is now almost over, so where’s the expected update? According to the latest tweet by Jason Mackenzie, Android 4.3 will hit the Developer Edition this week in the states, and will arrive to HTC One customers in Canada by the end of the month.
Unfortunately, the Droid DNA and U.S. carrier versions of the HTC One aren’t so lucky.
In a second tweet by Mackenzie, it is revealed that HTC is still “working hard & optimistic for U.S. Carrier certification”, but it appears that there is no ETA slated for any of the carrier devices. Hopefully the wait will be a short one, though we wouldn’t start mashing the update button on your handset just yet.
As always, we’ll be sure to keep our readers update when we learn more about HTC’s Android 4.3 update plans.
Any U.S.-based HTC One owners frustrated by the lack of a Android 4.2.2 update, and now a delay for Android 4.3? Or are you still perfectly content with your HTC One, and the software currently onboard?

This is b.s. I wanna get a galaxy s4 now. I have to wait even longer just because I don’t have the developer edition????? Not fair a at all
Did S4 get 4.3 ? if you are that butt hurt about the update switch your CID to DE and you’ll get the update at the same time as the DE
Fully converted mine to GPE, and running for 4.3, waiting on 4.4 next month… :-)
what about GPE camera? Is it as good as sense? Is there port of sense camera to GPE roms?
GPE camera’s not upto the standard of Sense cameras
I made the switch from Apple to htc and I am totally disappointed in both htc and Android for the lack of a realistic update schedule anyone cangive a specific fdate and never meet it
Really if you don’t care about the Sense experience, this is your best bet. Personally, and I never thought I’d say this, I really like Sense 5. Been running a ROM based off the Dev edition 4.3 leak and it’s been nothing but solid for me. Really loving my One.
How come “by month end” became “sometimes next month”? For me by month end means before the end of september…
HTC should keep their word, they are burning bridges. I bought 2 iPhones & a SGS3 because my Fuze was so bad. HTC did a great job on the One, but it needs emoji support. Of course hangouts integration like iMessage would be even better! Until then mighty text is great!
Wtf why the end of the month becomes some sort next month?! Screw it.! This is the 1st and last htc I’ll get. Stupid lies hyping people for deleyed
Take a deep breath, calm down and go and buy a iPhone if you want regular updates.
Same time for the note 2 and Gs 3 and 4 so i don’t know why you guys are complaining since Samsung says to update around the same time more or less.
I went through the Atrix 4G mismanagement by Motorola. A little delay won’t kill anyone. The phones still work.
This is dreadful, we were told we’d have a September update now it’s maybe next month? I mean why say anything in the first place.
My next phone is a Nexus for sure. Just have to wait a year and a half…
I am done with HTC. Neither I, family or friends will ever buy HTC if I can help it. You are a joke in the mobile phone world. From this point on the only promise I hope you keep is the one of you promising you are closing your doors.
It is funny how everyone gets upset about an update not being put out when the manufacturers promise. Testing may have shown them a few bugs you probably would complain about even more. Then it would be, “Why didn’t they do more testing on this update so the wouldn’t be so many bugs?” Or, “We would be happy to have waited for them to work out all of the problems before they sent us the update.” Be happy they are making sure the update is going to perform properly before they release it. And if you are that impatient root and download one of the roms out there with all the bugs you don’t want on your phone.
People complaining about HTC update please tell me which OEM updated it phones to 4.3??? they said this for DE, next week for Canada and after that US carrier phones due to US Carrier bullshit. I doubt Samsung can do any better.
Typical HTC. Great design, ok hardware, horrible software. Ya know, updating your phone doesn’t earn them money.
Can you name one OEM that updated it phone to 4.3 before HTC ?
No,he can’t haha
The HTC-hate on this site is broder-line ridiculous. What did y’all expect? Is it the first time people realize that carrier branded devices gets updates later??
Jeez you guys are complaining about not getting 4.3 which was released just some months ago as if every other phone has it right now… The HTC One looks to be one of the first phones(if not the first) that gets the 4.3 update apart from GPE and Nexus devices
i couldnt understand. so htc one dev edition will take it in this week and canada customers will take next month. So what about the other countries ? For example i bought from italy. So i will not take 4.3 update ? Are they kidding with us or i misunderstanding something ?
You are misunderstanding everything, europe will get 4.3, the North America case is different to european time line, expect 4.3 in europe next month
is camera tint issue is fixed ??
apparently yes, (Taiwan 4.3 update)
I got the DNA last January & while I really love the phone but with HTC’s lack of support I turned to XDA
when will my beloved evo get the update to sense 5/android4.2 or 4.3?
Iam done with HTC as well have the DNA and if I don’t get an update they can suck it
This is such crap, I have a DNA and want my update! There is no reason we should be left out on this update….
