It was barely a day before the HTC One M9 officially launched here in the US that HTC delivered a software update to drastically improve its camera. It was the update that some European models had been enjoying for weeks, with reports of much better picture quality across the board. When we originally received our One M9, the camera was damn near broken, struggling to take a steady or clear shot in anything but the brightest lighting conditions. But the update made a world of difference, as our own Rob Jackson was able to show you in his before and after shots.
The update was only initially available for the T-Mobile, Sprint, and Verizon models, with the AT&T version said to have already entered into the final testing phase. It’s been a little over a week since then, and now it appears AT&T is officially ready to push out the update. One M9 owners on AT&T should keep an eye out for software version 1.32.502.31 rolling out now. According to HTC, the update addresses 3 major issues:
- Camera improvements
- Thermal improvements
- Various bug fixes and improvements
Reports of overheating issues may have been exaggerated, but it’s nice to see HTC taking them seriously. If you haven’t been prompted yet for the update on your device, you can manually check for it by going into your Settings app > AT&T Software Update > Check for updates > Download the update. You can check the status of the download which will be displayed in your notification pull down. Once the update has been downloaded, tap “System update” to get up and running with software version 1.32.502.31 .
Keep in mind the phone will reboot several times during the update and HTC recommends that if you’re connected to a USB charger during this process, you don’t remove until after the update has finished and you’re back at your lock screen.
