When a new Android Operating System update is announced by Google there are a few steps that take place before it becomes ready for your device.  The manufacturer receives the update and customises the software for the device and mobile carriers in each country.  Once this is completed they’ll send the update to the carriers for testing.

 

For more info on this process check out our page:

 

Android Device Updates - What's The Process?

 

The below table provides information on the latest Android updates we’ve received for testing and approval as of 16/02/2017. If no information is listed, it means we haven't received the build or any new details from the manufacturer.

 

When a version is marked as completed it means testing has been finished on our end and approved.  Each manufacturer has a process for releasing updates to devices and once we approve the update, it’s sent back to the manufacturer to be released through their standard update processes. Generally, updates are rolled out progressively, for example the manufacturers might make the update available for a small number of users (i.e. 5%) initially; then if no unforeseen problems pop up, it’ll gradually be made available to more and more users over the following weeks.

The htc 10 is a great smartphone very underrated, probably the best phone ive used overall, i have been with optus for years now, using all sorts of phones samsungs,htcs,even a windows phone ,iphones, and generally Optus network service has been great but i just keep going back to apple ... why.. software support...thats the problem with the android ecosystem unless you get a Google pixel or  something like that, you are at the mercy of that  brands phone to release software updates, then the network provider to test and then back to htc etc to release it to us...my htc 10 last security update was on 1st of august 2016...yes that long ago....

@OGriobhtha We were aiming to have the update tested and approved within the last week or so of February however there has been a delay in testing. We're working hard to get this over the line but we don't have a revised timeframe as yet

 

@Victrix As I advised yesterday, there's been a delay with the testing of the 7.0 update. There's no additional information I have for you other then it was delayed beyond the initial time frame. Once we have a revised timeline I'll ensure we update our customers

 

@dfoxy1976 Our software testing team are not a customer facing team so I don't have any contact details for you sorry. You're welcome to contact our call centre on 133937 or via live chat at http://yesopt.us/chat2us if you'd like to discuss it with a customer service rep otherwise please continue to check back on our blog for the latest information.

@MattJ Please can you confirm the software version you are testing. I think you might have encountered a problem because you have been testing the wrong version. What is the full file name of the OTA you received from HTC? It should like something like this.

 

OTA_PERFUME_UHL_N70_SENSE80GP_hTC_Asia_AUS_2.42.710.2-1.95.710.3_release_480542nqgkb2u2677kw9u8.zip

 

Thanks

@Victrix I'm sorry but this isn't something I'll be able to share. I can assure you we're working closely with HTC to test the update they'll be releasing to their Australian, Optus customers and as such have the correct version of the update

So @MattJ if there was a delay, then why wasn't it changed in the content of the blog post?  That's where the frustration sets in from, you've set the expectation of a said date, if you update it to advise people of a change that's better than seeing a date that has already passed with no further information.  It sounds like there is no communication between departments, of if there is it sounds like it is one way.
