HTC One M9 on Verizon updated to Android 7.0 Nougat

HTC isn't exactly known for speedy updates, but the company has been known to push them quickly in some cases. This is definitely not one of those cases, but it would seem to be more Verizon's fault than HTC's. Slightly over a year since the release of Android 7.0, the One M9 on Verizon is finally getting a Nougat update.

Verizon discontinues the Wear24 smartwatch after just 4 months

Verizon announced its very own Android Wear smartwatch earlier this year, powered by its LTE network. It started selling the Wear24 in May for $300 on contract and $350 without one. That seemed like an interesting proposition when consumers have shown little interest even in cheap smartwatches. Verizon didn't let this product languish too long, though.

One of the best parts of LineageOS (and its predecessor, CyanogenMod) is that it can breathe life into older devices. Some phones and tablets can end up with several more years of Android updates thanks to the ROM community.
