HTC DROID DNA now receiving OTA upgrade

Yesterday, we learned that the HTC DROID DNA would be receiving a software upgrade over-the-air, and now the upgrade is rolling out to folks all over the land of the free and the home of the brave. It’s 103MB in size, and should bring with it many important bug fixes and improvements.

Verizon’s changelog says to expect improvements to mobile hotspot, improvements to audio quality for wired headphones and headsets, improvements to Bluetooth connectivity and volume controls, improved WiFi connectivity, enhanced reliability and stability for the contacts list, improvements to zooming in the default browser, a fix to display the correct timestamp on incoming messages, improved functionality for the Recent Apps feature and more.

It’ll be the same old song and dance for pre-update prep: get that battery up to at least 50% and get yourself up and running on a WiFi signal of some sort before attempting to download and install it. Let us know how things are going for you in following the upgrade in the comments section below — we hear that wireless hotspot has been a real stinker for some of you.

    why does it seem like htc phones always need these updates to improve Wi-Fi or audio? I had 3 HTC phones before moving onto a student OEM and it was the same thing every time.

      Be thankful that you get any updates from Verizon….unlike the Galaxy Nexus!

      Well, I cant speak to the audio but given that HTC already tends to have better radio performance that the competition, software improvements seem like icing on the cake to me. Personally, I haven’t had any issues with the WiFi so improvements sound good to me. :-)

    My update downloaded but didn’t install and it doesn’t show any install button anywhere, even in the Software Update section in Settings!
