The long wait for the HTC Incredible S Ice Cream Sandwich update is over.
HTC had said that the HTC Incredible S Ice Cream Sandwich update would begin in either June or July and according to The Unwired, the manufacturer has kept its promise and the GSM version of the phone has now started to received Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich.
This is great news for both owners of the HTC Incredible S and Android users in general.
HTC Incredible S owners now have access to Android 4.0.4 and all of the features that Ice Cream Sandwich has to offer. From a new UI to Face Unlock, it’s all there.
It’s also nice to see a manufacturer release an update at the beginning of a release window rather than in the very last part of it, like Verizon did for the Motorola Droid RAZR MAXX and Droid RAZR Ice Cream Sandwich updates.
HTC Incredible S owners should be thrilled.
The Incredible S Ice Cream Sandwich update will be rolling out OTA and should be around 250MB large. So, it should take a little bit of time to both download and install once it becomes available.
Owners of the Incredible S will want to look in Settings to see if the update has arrived. If it has, owners will be prompted to download and install.
This should is a good sign that Verizon might end up releasing Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich for the HTC Droid Incredible 2 since both phones are essentially one in the same.
HTC said that it would make a decision as to whether the Droid Incredible 2 would get Ice Cream Sandwich by August.
For those with an Incredible S though, enjoy ICS.
