Back in May, HTC published a long list of handsets that would be receiving an update to Ice Cream Sandwich, the Incredible S includes among them. According to reports the ICS update is now rolling out for the mid-range handset of old, arriving just in time to hit HTC’s own July timeline. We imagine that the unlocked GSM version will be seeing the update first with staggered updates depending on your region and carrier.
The update apparently comes in at around 250MB and is being delivered OTA, so there’s no need to rush to your computer and find a microUSB cable. If your phone hasn’t already pinged you about an update, it might be worth checking manually. Ice Cream Sandwich will bring some performance improvements, Face Unlock, and HTC has bumped Sense up to 3.6.
If you’re using an HTC phone with less than 512MB of RAM, you won’t be getting an ICS update. Other handsets such as the Desire S, the Desire HD, and Rezound are still due an ICS update though, with HTC’s schedule suggesting those handsets will see the upgrade between July and August. Hang tight in the meantime, HTC fans.
