Having this latest update for last year’s top HTC devices is reassuring rather than surprising, but it’s still something that owners of those phones will be happy to hear.
Alongside the unveiling of the new HTC One, the company has also now published a few of its own applications (that previously were only available within Sense) on the Google Play store. Availability is still limited to HTC devices only, but with those devices decoupled from the actual skin, it would be easier for users to get the latest versions of first-party apps without having to wait long times for full-on system updates. And many users know how the updating process can take painfully long, especially for carrier-branded devices.
