Update for Unlocked HTC 10 in the US delivers July’s security patch
UPDATE: One of our sources has informed us that HTC is, in fact, working on the security update for the international models of the HTC 10. At this time, we are not privy to the update’s release timeline, but we’re working to gather more information.
HTC has been a bit slow at getting Android’s monthly security updates pushed to its phones, but if you purchased the unlocked HTC 10 in the US, a new software update is available for your phone which delivers the latest July security patch along with a handful of bug fixes and stability improvements.
The OTA update should pop up a notification on the phone, prompting you to download it, but you can always ping HTC’s update servers manually by going to Settings > About device > Software updates > Check Now. The software update is 636.15 MB, so we recommend downloading the update on a reliable WiFi network and having at least a 50% charge before applying it.
HTC has not disclosed when the same update will be making its way to the HTC 10 in other regions or devices which are sold by service providers across the globe. Our hope is that we see a few more of these updates trickle out before the end of the week, but it’ll likely be a full more until all HTC 10 models have Android’s July security patch installed.
