Lollipop update rolled out, bring Android 5.0.1 to the HTC One M8. With the HTC One M9 launch around the corner, it is good to see that the previous year’s HTC flagship is finally getting the promised Lollipop update.

To check to see if you are eligible for the Android 5.0 Lollipop update, first make sure your phone is charged up. Then go to Settings–>About phone–>System updates→ Check for updates.

This software upgrade available for your HTC One provides the following key enhancements:

  • Android 5.0 Lollipop
    • Updated Lock screen and Notification UI with enhanced privacy features
    • Recent apps supports multiple pages
