Here's a left-over story that we didn't quite get to at the end of the day yesterday. A few hours after Sprint announced their Nexus 5 would get the Android 5.0.1 rollout, T-Mobile announced that their Nexus 5 and Nexus 6 would also start getting the newest "bug fix" update for Lollipop.

On top of this great news for T-Mobile users, the factory images and OTA update zips for version LRX22C are available for both the Nexus 5 and Nexus 6. Here are the download links below:
