It’s better late than never in the world of Android updates. The Verizon and Pure Edition of the latest Moto X have already had their turn at Lollipop, but now it’s finally here for AT&T devices.
It’s one of several updates to catch our eye in this week's roundup of major software updates for the biggest devices, including phones and tablets on U.S. carriers, as well as unlocked phones and even wearables. Making sure your device installs the latest software is a good housekeeping practice, ensuring you have the latest features, close security holes, and squash those pesky bugs.
Moto X (2nd generation): While other models have already scored Lollipop, Motorola says Android 5.0.2 is here now, with all the details in the latest changelog. Motorola sticks pretty close to stock Android, so you’ll be sure to get all that Material Design goodness.
Shield Tablet: Our favorite gaming tablet is getting a minor tweak to fix some color reproduction issues. They popped up after the recent 2.2 update a couple of weeks ago, so kudos to Nvidia for cranking out such a quick fix. The update also brings “improvements to [the] Netflix experience,” so feel free to stream away.
Android One: Google’s Android One effort in India isn’t slowing down, as Google announced Android Lollipop is on its way. Unlike the U.S. Google has tighter control over Android updates, so anyone with one of these budget-minded phones for the masses may start seeing Material Design before you do.
HTC One M7: Europe’s version of the first HTC One is getting Lollipop 5.0.2. It’s still running Sense 6.0, but it’s good to see HTC still churning out updates for its older devices.
