There is a new update being pushed out to some Windows Phone smartphones. Named Windows Phone 8.1 Update 2, it appears that what it brings to the table are bits of Windows 10 preview. Microsoft has stated that this update would be available for the Lumias 640, 735, and 830. However, I got an update prompt on my 930 tonight and I am currently downloading it.
The following features are expected in this update:
- new structured layout in Settings
- any Settings item can now be pinned to Start
- minor cosmetic UI changes
- support for Bluetooth keyboards
- Support for Cortana in more regions and languages
Once I have it running on my mobile, I will bring you more info.
