The operating system is being rolled out OTA (over the air) and it arrives under the “2.41.605.12” software version. Since the update is sent OTA, we advise HTC 10 owners to keep their eyes peeled at their notification panel because the operating system might pop up any time now. Additionally, anxious HTC 10 owners can always access the Settings – Software panel and download the update themselves.
Android 7.0 Nougat is a major upgrade over Android 6.0 Marshmallow. The new operating system enhances the Android user experience with the addition of a large number of tweaks, system enhancements and features.
