If you've got the developer or unlocked edition of the HTC One M8, check for a system update. Android 5.0 Lollipop is now available.
The update — software version 4.16.1540.8, if you're interested in such things — weighs in at 584 megabytes. The official changelog reads thusly:
- Android 5.0 Lollipop update
- Lock screen and notification: New Lollipop UI style with enhanced privacy features
- Recent apps: Supporting multiple pages
- Addition of search function within settings
The update was confirmed by HTC, which said it should start pushing "tonight." Obviously, however, we're seeing it a little sooner than that.
