HTC delays Marshmallow update for AT&T’s One M8 and One M9

HTC One M8 and One M9 owners on AT&T were expecting to get Marshmallow this month, but it’s running behind schedule.

HTC’s VP of Product Management, Mo Versi, tweeted about the delay on his Twitter page. He noted that there’s a slight delay in obtaining approval for Google’s latest Marshmallow OS. He also noted that they’re still in the lab, but plan to start rolling out the update to HTC One M8 and One M9 owners on AT&T in the next couple of weeks.

Some U.S. carriers have already pushed out the update to HTC’s past flagship smartphones. These include Verizon, Sprint, and T-Mobile. If you ask me, AT&T seems to be showing less care for HTC. AT&T delaying this update rollout, and reportedly not selling HTC’s new 10 flagship smartphone made me come to this conclusion. If you’re bound to AT&T and are a loyal HTC fan, the future doesn’t appear so bright.

An OTA update containing Google’s latest Android 6.0 (excluding the minor Android 6.0.1 update) is now rolling out to Sprint HTC One M8 units.

Millions of Android users are still waiting to get their hands on the latest software from Google. Subscribers of Sprint who have HTC’s 2014 One M8 flagship will be happy to know that the update is rolling out to everyone as of this moment. The confirmation came from Mo Versi, HTC’s VP of product management, who announced the plans on Twitter yesterday evening.

The Android 6.0 update will bring you all of the latest features from Google. These include the new Now on Tap capability, doze, simplified app permissions, and lots lots more. Google has received a majority of good feedback regarding its latest update since it launched back in May of last year.

When you receive the update, you’ll want to ensure that you’re connected to a Wi-Fi network to avoid data overages. Since it’s a big update, it will take some time to download and install. It’s also recommended that you charge your One M8 to at least 50% prior to installing the software. The update is rolling out in waves like it normally does, so if you don’t get the update today, or tomorrow, don’t be discouraged. If you haven’t received the notification to update yet, try going into settings under ‘About phone’ and then ‘check for new software updates’, this may speed up the process. Happy updating!
