HTC One S is still a relatively new handset. Well, new in the respect that those who picked one up with T-Mobile are likely still tied to their original two-year agreement. The carrier had released the handset in April 2012. Anyway, with that in mind, it looks like some bad news has arrived not only for those T-Mobile users, but for anyone that happens to be carrying an HTC One S.

T-Mobile updated the HTC One S towards the end of April and it looks like another update has recently arrived. This latest is a small update, but one that may be considered very important for those who are having battery related issues. Simply put, this latest update deals with one item and that item just so happens to be battery life improvements.
T-Mobile on the official HTC One S software update page about the Jelly Bean update being ready, however we are seeing reports coming from those with a device in their hands. We still need the official word from the carrier, however if you are carrying a T-Mobile branded HTC One S -- you may want to check for an update.
One, now we're getting additional details regarding a few of their already available and popular smartphones. Both the HTC One S from T-Mobile, and Verizon's HTC Rezound have updates rolling out today. Sadly neither are Jelly Bean, but we have the details below.
Jelly Bean for HTC's popular One S smartphone began rolling out internationally back in late December, but it still hasn't arrived for everyone quite yet. While the T-Mobile version is still up in the air and in the testing stages, the folks down on Three UK have confirmed the update is rolling out this week.
T-Mobile have a little gift coming soon for those HTC One S smartphone owners. Earlier this week we reported the international HTC One S was finally starting to get Android 4.1 Jelly Bean updates, and now we can confirm HTC and T-Mobile are in the final testing stages of the same update for their own customers.
HTC has quite the gift in store for One S users, as it has starting rolling out Android 4.1.1 Jelly Bean updates to some global HTC One S handsets. The update was first discovered by the fine folks over at the XDA Developers Forum, and while there are a lot of CID numbers that are apparently supported, not all global One S devices are getting Jelly Bean right away. The same is true for the US One S, which is sold through T-Mobile - we're not sure when that will be getting Jelly Bean either, sadly.
PlayStation Certified train continues to roll on, but it seems that HTC is the only other company interested in a ride. Aside from a number of Sony devices, only HTC handsets have been PlayStation Certified, and today nothing is changing - we're only getting word of three additional HTC devices that have been given PlayStation Certification. According to AndroidGuys, the HTC One X+, One S, and One V have all become PlayStation Certified.
Jelly Bean and its various versions, it's understandable that a lot of Android users want to know when their handset will be getting an update. A few manufacturers have announced a Jelly Bean update schedule for their devices, but we haven't heard all that much from HTC on the matter. That all changed today, though HTC didn't have much to do with it - instead, it was oft-reliable Twitter leaker @Football4DPA, who has delivered a list of HTC devices that are scheduled to get updates to Jelly Bean.
