While HTC has been much more aggressive with rolling out updates since the arrival of the HTC One (M7), they’ve fallen a bit behind schedule with the Lollipop rollout. The update to carriers should have happened months ago now, but better late than never.

For those on AT&T’s network, you’ll be happy to know the One M7 and One M8 will soon be seeing an update to Android 5.0 Lollipop, starting with the HTC One M7 sometime today. Mo Versi originally confirmed the news of the One M7’s impending update through Twitter last night, and this morning also revealed that the HTC One M8 will also be making the jump, albeit slightly later on April 6th.

As for what’s new here? Both updates will bring a number of new features from Lollipop including notification improvements, a redesigned recent apps panel, and a slew of new security features. As for Material Design, you can expect a few aesthetic changes but the visual update will be much less noticeable than you’d find with a stock Android device like a Nexus, thanks to HTC’s custom skin.

Keep in mind that the One M7 update is coming sometime today, but we’ve yet to receive any confirmation that its rollout has begun. We’ll be sure to update you as soon as we learn more.
