Verizon’s HTC 10 finally gets Android 7.0 Nougat update today


Exactly as announced by an HTC exec yesterday, the rollout of the Android 7.0 Nougat update for the HTC 10 units sold by Verizon is now underway. This has been a long time coming, to say the least. Unlocked HTC 10 units sold in the US have been on the new OS version since last year, while other carriers such as T-Mobile and Sprint have already pushed it to their respective models.

And now it’s Verizon’s turn. Once you get that coveted update notification, make sure you’re on Wi-Fi or have enough signal on Big Red’s network before you start the download. After you’ve applied the update, you’ll be on build number 2.41.605.12, running Android 7.0.

As always, an over-the-air rollout such as this may take a few days (or even weeks) to reach all the devices out there. If you’re impatient you can try to manually check for the new release by going to Settings > About Phone.

The new software version will bring you all the goodies of Nougat, including (but not limited to) native split-screen multitasking, a revamped notification system, a reorganized Settings app, Data Saver, and the feature that lets you double-tap on the Recents button to jump to the previous app.
