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.
