The joy of buying a phone from a retailer as opposed to a carrier is that you can skip all that carrier approval processes that usually comes with updates, and chances are you might see updates earlier than those who bought their phones from carriers. The downside is that you might have to pay more due to a lack of a subsidy.
That being said, the Moto X (2014) had recently begun to receive its Android 5.0 Lollipop update, and the good news is that if you’re a Moto X (2014) owner who bought their phone from Verizon, it has been confirmed that the Android 5.0 update for your particular Moto X (2014) variant will begin rolling out today.
Now some had speculated that the update was still in testing when the changelog was posted, but later reports from users have revealed that the update has made its way onto their handsets. We can only assume that just like previous updates, the Android 5.0 update for the phone will be a staggered release.
If you have yet to receive your Android 5.0 update, fret not as we expect it should arrive in the coming days/weeks. The update measures close to 700MB so you will want to connect to a WiFi network for this. If you’d like to try and manually pull the update, you can do so by heading to your phone’s Settings -> About Phone -> System Updates. So, have you received your update yet?
