Just last week Sprint rolled out KitKat to the HTC One Max, and now we have received word that it’s almost Verizon’s turn. According to HTC’s director of product management Mo Versi, the One Max’s Android 4.4.2 and Sense 5.5 update has received approval on Verizon’s network and should be making its way out to users sometime on Monday.
As we’ve seen with a lot of other KitKat updates from major manufacturers, there’s not a lot new here other than the goodies that come with Android 4.4.2. We don’t have a full-change log just yet, but we imagine there are at least a few minor HTC and carrier-specific bug fixes and minor tweaks as well.
HTC Verizon One Max Owners! We have received technical approval for Sense 5.5 + OS 4.4.2! Expect the OTA update to start on Monday afternoon

As you’d expect, this is a staged rollout so it could take at least a few days before it reaches everyone. If you have yet to receive a notification prompting you to download the update, you can manually check for an update by going into your device’s settings. Keep in mind that this is going to be a fairly sizable update, so you’ll want to be on Wi-Fi if data usage is a concern.
Be sure to check back with us Monday, as we’ll be sure to update the post as soon as we receive word that the update is live.
