The update includes improvements to the camera software in addition to the usual security patches and performance tweaks.

HTC was very quick to update the One A9 with December's security patches from Google, and it looks like AT&T are pretty fast as well. Earlier this week, the carrier has begun to roll out the Android 6.0.1 update to customers. 

Mo Versi, HTC's Vice President of Product Management, made the following announcement on Twitter this Tuesday: "AT&T HTC One (A9) Owners - The latest security updates including improvements to the camera will be OTA'd out by tonight." By now, most HTC One A9 users on AT&T should have received the OTA update notification already. Anyway, those in a hurry can always use the manual check solution.

While Mo Versi did not reveal any details about the changes to the camera, it is known that December's security patch solves a set of high alert and critical issues. Fortunately, the security holes solved by this update have not led to mass exploits.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
