Motorola's sweeping Android Lollipop updates are continuing with a couple of U.S. Cellular devices getting their upgrade to Android 5.1. The first is the second generation Moto X, the company's latest flagship, which is now getting software version LPE23.32-21. The other U.S. Cellular Motorola getting Android 5.1 is the Moto E LTE, which is receiving software version LPI23.29-15.Both handsets are getting the update now and the carrier says users have to be connected to Wi-Fi to get them. As is the norm, the upgrades are rolling out over the air in stages, so you may have to wait a few days to receive yours. Android 5.1 is not the sweeping overhaul that Android 5.0 was, but it does enhance the Lollipop experience by adding new features. Those include support for HD calling, support of dual SIM devices, new Quick Settings icons. The update also improves security features like the ability to stop a device being unlocked if it has been stolen or lost, with only the user signing into their Google account unlocking it.
