How to Update
If you find update notification on your device, that will be the sweetest thing that HTC can deliver but if it hasn’t arrived or you want to force check for update manually, then go to Settings > About Phone and then tap on Software update. Your device will be then communicated to HTC servers for the update availability in your region. You should be connected to either WiFi or any data connectivity to download any updates.
