After pledging to bring KitKat to its flagship One devices in just 90-days, HTC on Wednesday announced the company will miss its target date by a few weeks. But don’t be alarmed, One users, as the software is already in the hands of AT&T, Sprint, Verizon and T-Mobile, meaning the certification process is underway. Once everything is finalized, carriers will be clear to push the software out to consumers, giving One users the latest version of Android.

If you’re curious about the development process on HTC’s end, the company has a nice landing page where users can check out what steps are required before software is ready for consumption. Despite the short delay, HTC Americas President, Jason Mackenzie, said the company will learn from this experience and improve future delivery times.

KitKat has already been made available for the unlocked, Developer and Google Play Edition devices. Meanwhile, the software for the HTC One mini on AT&T, and HTC One max on Sprint and Verizon is currently in the integration stage, which is a step behind the certification process.
