HTC to bring its 'sixth sense' (Sense 6.0 update) to HTC One (2013), HTC One mini and HTC One max
HTC has officially confirmed that it will update its 2013 HTC One, the HTC One mini and the HTC One max with its latest Sense 6.0 user interface (that it jokingly refers to as ‘sixth sense’). The Taiwanese phone maker mentioned the upcoming update in its press conference, but it did not give any firm timelines for the roll-out.

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.

You can take a look at our detailed examination of the differences between the new Sense 6.0 and its earlier versions right here.
