HTC One M8 for Windows Update 2

Looks like Verizon is turning a new leaf as this morning we can confirm that their HTC One (M8) for Windows is now receiving Windows Phone 8.1 Update 2 build 15143. This release is slightly behind yesterday's 15148 release for some Lumia 735s and Lumia 830s, but it is still in the Update 2 category.

Verizon has not detailed the update although it is confirmed via their support services and accompany PDF file that mentions 'OS upgrade to General Distribution Release 2 (GDR2)'.

We should caution that if you still have the Preview for Developers program enabled, you will not see today's update. Instead, you need to open that app and un-enroll in the program. Only then will your phone see the update waiting on the servers when you check for an upgrade.

We have previously mentioned the main features of Update 2, which are listed below and apply to the HTC One too:

The HTC One (M8) is still one of our favorite high-end phones on Verizon, so it is exciting to see it pick up this upgrade. To check for the update, head into Settings > Phone Update > Check for update (see the note above).
