If you own a Motorola Droid Turbo and you are waiting for your Lollipop update ? You are in luck, Apparently the Droid Turbo will not get any build based on Android 5.0, but instead will be updated directly with Android 5.1 Lollipop which is currently the absolute latest version of Google's mobile OS.
 
This probably means you still have some waiting to do until the new software will reach your handset, unfortunately. Google has just started rolling out Android 5.1 to its Nexus devices, and not even all of those have it yet. On the other hand, Motorola has been fast with updates lately, so perhaps it will move quickly with this one too.
 
The reason for the jump from KitKat straight to Android 5.1 Lollipop apparently has to do with Verizon. The carrier "demands" VoLTE support baked into the Turbo's software, and Android 5.1 provides that natively. So for Motorola working on backporting this feature to the first Lollipop release, only to then have to switch to Android's native implementation with the 5.1 update would have been a big waste of resources. Hence, the decision to skip 5.0 altogether.
