Verizon's HTC One M9 finally gets Nougat
The HTC One M9 was launched in 2015, but that hasn't prevented it from being updated to Android 7.0 Nougat, the OS version Google released last year. Internationally, One M9 units started seeing the new software back in February. In the US, T-Mobile rolled out the update in March, while AT&T followed suit in May.
On the other hand, Verizon is only now pushing the same software release to One M9 units it's sold. Four months after AT&T, six months after T-Mobile, but better late than never, right?

The new build is 4.49.605.11. Aside from all the goodies in Nougat, it comes with the August 2017 security patch level.
Just put the phone in airplane mode first, then change the modes, then connect to wifi do the update....switch modes to whichever you need later after the update if need be it is easy.
