HTC One in U.K. gets Android 4.3, Sense 5.5
The update brings software version 3.62.401.1 to your handset and adds enhancements to Daydream while also adding OpenGL ES 3.0 support. Sense 5.5 brings some new features to BlinkFeed, adding Instagram and Google+ feeds among other changes. The Gallery is improved in Sense 5.5, which also brings a new UI for Video Highlights.
If you live in the U.K. with your HTC One and have yet to receive the update, don't pout. These updates rollout in waves, so be patient. Your update will come.

If I'm not mistaken, the US models did not receive the Sense 5.5 update, correct?

I don't think so. They should get it with the 4.4 update though, maybe even with the new version of Sense (6.0?) that will be on the new HTC flagship, since HTC did say the 4.4 update would come within 90 days, and they do typically release their flagship early in the year.

Well that's good, at least they're keeping up where they can. I remember the 4.1 release on the S3, took a full year to get it done for the Canadian phones.
How hard is it for these companies to adapt their old software to the new version of Android anyway. As a developer, I know full well that Android is very backwards compatible and so why can't they just release the new version of Android plastered with their old UI and then take their sweet time as usual releasing the "new" version of their own skins and junk. And how hard is it to modularize their addons so the OS and their apks are separate enough to allow this. Just boggles the mind how these companies function (those that still are) with such inefficient methodology.

I updated yesterday and hate the fact that the lockscreen options have been removed. Also hate the new gallery layout. Should have stayed at 4.2.2
