Verizon’s HTC One finally getting Android 4.3 OTA

Verizon has been changing things around when it comes to updates, having been the first to roll out a major update to both the Moto X and the Samsung Galaxy S4. Unfortunately, this new found focus on quick updates didn’t materialize in time for the HTC One – the HTC flagship is only just beginning to receive the Android 4.3 update from Verizon, a couple of months after the international and other carrier variants, though right on schedule as was promised by Verizon over the weekend.

The OTA update is starting to appear on devices since the last couple of hours, and along with the usual Android 4.3 enhancements – faster performance, Bluetooth LE (low-energy) and OpenGL 3.0 support, improved accessibility, etc. – the update brings the ability to add music to Video Highlights, increased charging speed when using Mophie Juicepack power station, fix for a connection error in the HTC Watch app and a faint ringing noise in the earpiece that was reported by users, and the usual performance and stability improvements.

It’s a 469 MB update, so make sure you’re using a Wi-Fi connection before proceeding with the download, unless you’ve got lots of data to spare on your data plan. The update will roll out in stages as usual, though you can head to the Settings » About phone menu to do a manual check for it if you don’t want to wait any longer. Considering how long the wait has been, well, we won’t blame you for being impatient.
