The Android 7.0 Nougat update for the HTC 10 isn’t exactly new. Over the past couple of months we’ve seen various carriers release the update for the phone, although Verizon was nowhere in sight for the longest time ever. However the other day it was reported that the carrier was getting the update ready, and sure enough here it is.
For HTC 10 owners on Verizon who have been eagerly anticipating the update, you’ll be pleased to learn that the carrier has recently begun to push out the update. Typically updates are rolled out in stages so if you didn’t receive any notification informing you about the update, not to worry as the carrier has not forgotten about you and you should receive it in due time.
Alternatively if you’d rather not wait to be notified, you can try manually pulling the update by going to your phone’s Settings -> About Phone and seeing if there are updates waiting for you. The update to Nougat shouldn’t really bring any surprises as this is pretty much the Nougat update that all other Android phones have been receiving over the past few months or so.
As always when updating your phone to a major build like Nougat, you’ll want to ensure that you have enough free space on the device, that you’re connected to WiFi to prevent you from going over your data cap, and to ensure that your phone is connected to power lest it dies mid-update. Details of the update can be found on Verizon’s website.
