Yesterday we reported that the international HTC One Mini was already seeing an update to Android 4.3 and that the previously delayed Verizon HTC One update to 4.3 would also be arriving sometime this week. The day has finally come, Verizon subscribers can now update their One handsets over to Android 4.3!

So what’s new here? Besides the usual 4.3 Jelly Bean features, there’s also several bug fixes and the ability to add your own music to video highlights. The VZ Cloud application is also now included with the update. This Verizon app (read: bloatware) allows you to back up contacts, photos, text messages and call logs. You can also transfer content to a new device in the event your handset is lost, stolen or it’s just time to upgrade to something newer.

As usual, the Android 4.3 update is being pushed out in stages, so it might take a few days or so before it reaches everyone. For those that don’t want to wait any longer than you have to, you can manually check for the update through the Settings menu.

Anyone receive the update yet – if so what do you think so far? Did the installation process go smoothly?
