Sense 6.0 UI update for HTC One (2013) will be released before the end of May
When HTC announced the new One M8, it confirmed that some of its older smartphones would be updated to Sense 6.0 UI later this year. The first to get the new version of Sense is likely going to be the original HTC One.

HTC America president Jason Mackenzie today stated that owners of the One 2013 should be able to download Sense 6.0 by the end of May. He noted that this concerns only users in the US and Canada, so folks in other markets may not receive the update that fast.

Sense 6.0 UI comes with a fresh design, enhanced BlinkFeed, updated gallery and Sense TV, and more. Last year’s HTC One mini and One max will also receive Sense 6.0, but HTC didn’t say exactly when it’s going to happen. In case you own an HTC Desire model from 2013, it doesn’t look like you’ll be able to get a taste of Sense 6 - at least not officially.

What you talking about? It is the M8 rom ported over to the M7, which is what i'm using. The features available in the port are exactly the same as on the M8, including the knock-knock feature to turn off the screen (if you also want to turn on the screen with knock-knock, then you'll need a custom kernel which is available on XDA). But all other sense 6.0 features are available via simply flashing the custom ROM. There are several flavors available, but if you want a feel of stock sense 6.0, go for Android Revolution HD ROM (it is based on the latest Android 4.4.2 and regularly updated). BTW, Sense 6.0 is awesome! :)

Good work, HTC. Keep on working, it'll pay off in the long run, you're starting to build up your reputation in updates.

its on the top page on XDA forums

I used to use InsertCoin, but I've switched back to BOA2.0 because it has less glitches. Although InsertCoin is a little more customisable if you're into that stuff. BOA camera actually works at 8mp instead of 4mp, and also gallery editing works without force closing. I'd say BOA is more polished.
