As I said earlier, this update will be gradually rolled out throughout the globe, as OTA updates. Therefore, you need not connect your HTC One to the computer for updating. All you need is a WIFI connection on your HTC One.

If you have Software Updates Notifications disabled, then you can also manually check for the update by going through Settings>About> and then clicking the Software Update button, on your HTC One.

However, if you have rooted or installed a custom ROM on your HTC One, then you’ll need to unroot your HTC One before you can receive this software update. Unrooting your HTC One means, removing the custom ROM from your HTC One, and then moving back to the factory-installed stock ROM for your HTC One.

If you have not made a backup of the stock ROM of your HTC One, then you can download the stock ROM for your HTC One by visiting the official website of HTC and then choosing the official stock firmware based on your country and model number.

After you unroot your HTC One, then you’ll get the OTA update notification, if it has been released on your country. Else, you can also check for the update manually by following the simple procedure that I mentioned above.
