Apple will be sending out its latest software update in the form of iOS 8.4, which will be landing on devices from tomorrow (June 30th). Of course, Cupertino recently announced iOS 9, but that will not land until this fall, so build 8.4 is as new as it gets at the moment. The big news with this update is that it comes with Apple's own music streaming service, Apple Music, which was showcased at WWDC recently.
Windows 10 will be launching next month, but we will have to wait until the fall to get the mobile version of the platform. Windows 10 Mobile will arrive in the third quarter and is potentially the most complete mobile operating system Microsoft has ever made. It certainly looks nice judging by these leaked images of build number 10149, which will not actually be the final offering from Redmond.
We broke the news earlier this month that Motorola will be bringing Android 5.1.1 Lollipop to its original Moto X some time during June. Fast forward two weeks and the company is delivering on its promise and is now updating its 2013 flagship in three countries, with more sure to follow.
HTC is now rolling out Android Lollipop to its One Max, the oversized version of the company's old One M7 flagship. The company is finally getting around to this update because the Max is still a solid mid-range phablet, although it was not a big seller, most consumers preferring (rightly) the more compact One M7.
T-Mobile has fulfilled its promise and has started sending out Android 5.1.1 Lollipop to its Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge smartphones. Samsung revealed that the software would be coming to its new flagship in June and it seems T-Mobile is the first U.S. carrier to confirm the upgrade.
Motorola's original Moto X (launched back in 2013) has still not received an update to Android 5.0 Lollipop, a fact that goes against the company?s reputation for being the quickest OEM to upgrade to new software versions. Given Motorola's near stock experience, the lack of update for the Moto X is a surprise, but it does seem as though the wait is finally over as Android 5.1 Lollipop is expected to land on the old flagship during this month.
Microsoft has already confirmed that Windows 10 will be launching on July 29th, but the company has yet to offer an official date for Windows 10 Mobile. PC?s and tablets will be getting the full Windows 10 OS during July, but the mobile version is going to land at a later date. According to a report today from Neowin suggests that Windows 10 Mobile will be launched in September.
T-Mobile is finally updating its version of the LG G3 to Android 5.0 Lollipop, much later than other carriers and international variants. Considering Lollipop launched back last November and until recently the G3 was LG's main flagship handset, it has been tardy to say the least by T-Mobile. At least now consumers with the G3 on the Magenta Network are finally getting Android 5.0.
T-Mobile is finally getting around to updating its Sony Xperia Z3 version to Android 5.0 Lollipop, with the upgrade to start tomorrow (midnight). The fourth largest carrier in the United States has been testing the software since mid-May and is now ready to start pushing it out to Sony Xperia Z3 users around the country.
Canadian carrier Rogers is going to be sending out the Android 5.1 Lollipop software for its version of the Moto G LTE during June. The information showed up on a list of the company's upcoming updates (also revealing the original Moto X will get Android 5.0.2 during June too) making the handset skip directly past Android 5.0 to 5.1.
