Infographic: HTC Presents The Anatomy of an Android OS Update


Ever wonder why Android OS updates sometimes take so long to land on your device? A nifty infographic from HTC shows us just how involved the whole process is. While we sit and wait, sometimes patiently sometime not for our updates to roll out OTA, there is a ton of work going on behind the scenes.

Since the announcement of Android 4.4 KitKat last October, only a handful of devices have actually gotten the brand spanking new version of Android on their devices. HTC device owners are about to get their tasty KitKat treat soon, as HTC submitted the update to carriers and is waiting on final approval as we speak. So far, the HTC One Developer Edition, Google Edition and unlocked Ones have received Android 4.4. The HTC One on AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile and Verizon are still waiting for certification.

While you’re waiting for your KitKat update, check out the infographic below, straight from HTC.
