Verizon recently started sending out software updates to three of its devices today, including the Samsung Galaxy Note 5, the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge+, and the LG G5, all complete with a few minor changes. Verizon isn't the only one sending out updates today, though, as HTC has just started pushing a software update out to HTC 10 owners over-the-air. These updates are only rolling out to the unlocked model of this phone and for now, the update is only hitting unlocked devices within the U.S., so users in other regions with the unlocked model will have to wait a little bit to get this update, assuming that they need it in the first place.

Having said all that, the usual elements should apply here for anyone who is attempting to install the latest software update to their HTC 10. The update file comes in at just shy of 400MB (the exact file size is 394.48MB) which means it's a good idea to ensure that users are connected to WiFi before trying to start the software update download, and having a full battery beforehand is also recommended. As for what's new with the software changes in this most recent update to the HTC 10, it's centered around enhancements to various things on the device including the camera, WiFi, and the system, and it will bring users forward to software version 1.53.617.5.

In regards to the camera, HTC states this update will enhance the performance of it so all that's happening here is HTC is improving the overall performance of the function making it likely that it will run smoother when using it, open faster, etc. The other two enhancements are focused on the stability of the Wifi, as well as the stability of the system. Some users most likely had issues with keeping the WiFi connected, so this update should address any problems that may have been causing the WiFi to have unstable connection issues. The same is likely the case with the system stability improvements that come along with this update too, so overall, users should notice the device running a little smoother at the system level. The updates seem to have just recently started so if you haven't seen it come through just yet, chances are it could still be a little bit before it hits your device over-the-air. You can also check to see if the update is available manually by navigating to the settings menu, then about phone, and then by tapping on the software update button.
