Android 7.0 starts rolling out to the unlocked Moto Z
Good news today for those who purchased the unlocked Motorola Moto Z directly from the manufacturer. As promised, the update to Android 7.0 has begun rolling out to the handset OTA. That means that those sporting the model will soon be able to avail themselves of the new features that come with Android 7.0. We are talking about the enhanced version of Doze which improves your battery life, the multi-task multi-screen, an improved notification system, the ability to close all open apps with a single tap, and more. It also adds support for Google's Daydream VR platform.

When you receive notification that the update has arrived, before you begin the installment process, you need to make sure that you are connected to a Wi-Fi network or a high-speed signal. At the same time, you should plug your Moto Z into a power source, or make sure that the battery is fully charged.

Other Moto Z series handsets still running Android 6.0 Marshmallow, will soon get updated to Android 7.0. Both the Verizon branded Moto Z Play Droid and the unlocked Moto Z Play will be receiving the update next month.

I wonder why the Verizon version got it before the unlocked models did.
