HTC is working hard on bringing Android 5.0 Lollipop to all its recent devices, after admitting that it would miss the 90 day update window it previously promised. Next in line is the HTC One (M7) for Sprint which is now reportedly receiving the Lollipop update.

The update is being pushed OTA (over-the-air) and users should get an OTA notification when the update is available for installation. The update will be based on Android 5.0.1 like HTC's other recent updates. If you have not received the OTA notification, you can check for the update under Settings on your device.
