New T-Mobile Update For The HTC One S Fixes Battery Life Bug


Ever since T-Mobile updated the HTC One S with Android 4.1.1 Jelly Bean back in April, many users have noticed a significant decrease in its battery life. However, the carrier has clearly heard our cries for help, and is now pushing out an update for all One S owners in an effort to fix the battery bug.

The new update, software version 3.14.531.17 70RD, doesn’t bring any obvious changes to the device; its sole purpose is to fix the poor battery life caused by the transition from Ice Cream Sandwich to Jelly Bean.

If you’re a One S user wishing to upgrade your software, you will need to already be using software version 3.14.531.11 710RD, running on a device that is not rooted and ensure that you have at least 50% charge before starting the update.

Update notifications are being automatically pushed to phones starting today. For those wanting to get the update immediately you can either go to the ‘Check Now’ menu item in the system settings, you can do this by going to Settings>About phone> Software updates. or alternatively, you can visit HTC’s website to update via a USB cable.

The One S was released back in April, 2012 and packs a dual-core 1.5GHz Snapdragon processor, 1GB of RAM, a Super AMOLED capacitive touchscreen and Beats Audio.
