HTC announced earlier that the KitKat update would be going out to DROID DNA owners on Verizon on Thursday, and the Taiwanese manufacturer (or should we say Verizon) is keeping its word. The update has started rolling out to devices this morning along with a smaller update that will prep the device for the KitKat upgrade, with the actual update 618 MB in size.
The update brings all the expected KitKat features, including faster performance, white status bar icons, wireless printing support, advanced location control, settings options to select the default launcher and messaging apps, and general stability improvements. Also included is Sense 5.5, which brings its own set of features such as a redesigned music and gallery app, the option to turn off BlinkFeed and add more content sources, and more. It’s similar to the update that went out to the HTC One and other HTC devices a few months ago, and should make for a much better experience than before.
The update is currently available over-the-air but could take a few days to reach everyone, so don’t forget to do a manual check in the Settings » Software update menu.
