After watching just about every other carrier-connected variant of the original Moto X updated to Android 4.4.4, owners of the T-Mobile version of the handset are now receiving the latest flavor of KitKat. The phone never really released on the magenta-hued carrier and was instead sold by Motorola at full price as the “T-Mobile edition,” so perhaps that’s why the update took so long.

As for Android 4.4.4 itself, the software introduces some security fixes related to issues with OpenSSL, along with some undocumented performance improvements. If your device hasn’t received an over-the-air notification, you can manually check for the update through your phone’s settings.
