Verizon’s HTC One max finally gets its Sense 6 upgrade


The long-awaited Sense 6 upgrade for the HTC One max is finally rolling out to Verizon customers. In addition to HTC’s latest apps and user interface, the package brings an improved BlinkFeed, customizable fonts and themes, and a whole bunch of important bug fixes and improvements.

With Sense 6, One max owners get to enjoy the same great user interface and features that One M8 owners have been using the device made its debut back in February. One of those is an improved BlinkFeed with a new design, which lets users add and remove content, and supports social networking feeds from the likes of Facebook and Twitter.

One max users also have access to the same theme options that One M8 owners do, allowing them to change the color of their status and menu bars, as well as built-in HTC apps like Weather. The customization options continue with the ability to change the handset’s system font.

The new firmware delivers a new Camera interface with the option to create custom camera settings, plus a new Gallery app, which has been simplified with Timeline, Albums, and Locations categories. Sense TV has also been improved and now offers love sports scores and social media integration.

HTC has addressed a number of bugs and issues with this release, including those that affected the ISIS Wallet app, spellcheck and autocorrect, and the fingerprint scanner. The update is rolling out now to those on Verizon, so keep an eye out for a notification if you haven’t already had yours.
