Motorola’s David Schuster today announced through a post on Google+ that the company has started rolling out the Android 6.0 Marshmallow update for the Moto X Pure Edition on Sprint, Verizon and US Celluar.

As being reported on various forums, the OTA update has already landed on devices of many Moto X Pure users. While Motorola does not mention anything about the update for Pure users who are on T-Mobile and AT&T networks, many users  have managed to get the update on their handset as well through a trick.

The trick involves un-mounting the microSD card and then ejecting the SIM card from the device, rebooting the handset and checking for updates. It is likely that you will then get an update notification. Once the update is installed, pop the SIM back in to your device. The trick seems to work for many people living outside the United States as well, so if you have a Moto X Pure edition that is still not running Marshmallow, do make sure to give it a try.

Additionally, Schuster also announced that Motorola has started the Marshmallow soak test for the Moto X Play in India and Brazil and the Moto X Force in Brazil.

Have you received the Marshmallow update on your Moto X Pure Edition? If yes, how are you liking it? Have you noticed any improvement in battery life?
