HTC U11 snags another security patch and Boost+ bug fix with latest update
The Taiwanese HTC U11 is getting yet another update – exactly one week after its last. While the last update included Bluetooth 5.0 support and also gave the U11 the ability to record video at 60fps in 1080p, this new update is a bit tame. The 273 MB update isn’t small, but it only includes the latest Android Security Patch for July (which HTC claimed was also included in the last update) and a fix for HTC’s Boost+ app which has had memory scanning issues.
If you happen to have purchased your HTC U11 in Taiwan, you should receive an update notification on your device within the next day or two. For those who don’t want to wait that long, you can go into Settings > About > Software Updates > Check Now and download it immediately.
The HTC 10’s security update is still MIA
It’s nice to see that HTC is keeping up with the security patches on the HTC U11, but the company has been neglecting the same updates on its older devices. Various US carrier-branded models of last year’s HTC 10 in the US have not received security updates in 3-5 months and the unlocked EMEA models of the phone are still stuck with the security patch from January of this year.
We reached out to one of our sources when the unlocked HTC 10 in the US received its July security patch a few weeks back. While they did not have any concrete details regarding when the international variants of the HTC 10 would be getting their next security update, they assured us that an update is in the works. When that update will be delivered is anyone’s guess.
