HTC Sense 6.0 is rolling out to previous-generation HTC One M7 devices now

The HTC software update page is showing that the latest version of the company's customized Android skin, Sense 6.0, is being pushed out to device owners this weekend.

The update, available to all previous-generation (M7) HTC One devices, brings some of the new features found on the company's new flagship One M8 to the older devices. The UI looks similar to the M8 and applicable HTC apps will be updated to their latest versions.

Of course, some of the new features of the One M8 won't be present in the Sense 6.0 update for last-generation M7 devices. This includes some of the popular, intriguing new camera features which simply cannot be fitted on the old units as they do not have the required camera hardware.

The HTC software update page is currently reporting that the update has finished rolling out to the One M7 and One M7 developer edition as well as the T-Mobile One M7 and Sprint One Max. The AT&T, Sprint and Verizon versions of the One M7, as well as the Sprint One Max, are currently preparing for roll-out. The only device still waiting for the update is the AT&T-based HTC One Mini although the page confirms that the update is being prepared for it and is in the 'integration' phase. The other carrier variants are at the 'certification' phase.

Currently, the update is only rolling out in the US and is still being prepared for deployment in other territories very soon. If you have a last-generation, M7 HTC One in the US and have received the Sense 6.0 update this weekend then please let us know in the comments how it performs on these last-generation devices. If you have an M7 One outside the US then it shouldn't be much longer until you get the update too, according to HTC's support site.
