HTC One M8

The for AT&T is now receiving the Android 4.4.3 software update. The new software will bring the 2.23.502.3 version number and is expected to be around 660MB in size, so users are recommended to connect to Wi-Fi and have their devices fully charged before initiating the update.

The latest version of Android was released for the international model and the Sprint variant about a month ago, and the T-Mobile variant received the update last week. So this leaves only the Verizon model ,which is expected to receive the update in mid-September.

Since the HTC One M8 runs Android 4.4 KitKat out of the box, it already has the transparent status and nav bars, white status bar icons, immersive mode, new Location menu, cloud printing, or full screen album and movie art in the lock screen. With Android 4.4.3 you wont notice any visual improvements, but your HTC One M8 will benefit from various optimization, bug fixes and security improvements.

The update is being rolled out OTA (over-the-air) and in stages. So you may not receive the update notification immediately. Once you do receive the OTA notification you can click on "Download Now". After the files are downloaded, choose "Install now." After the installation process is complete the smartphone will reboot. You can also manually check for the update by going to Settings > About phone > Software updates > Check now.
