The first update to Windows Phone 8.1 is now rolling out in Nigeria. Named Windows Phone 8.1 Update 1 (GDR1), the update brings home screen folder support, support for smart covers, updated Xbox music app, apps coner, and a few other features.
I got an update notification on my Lumia 930 some minutes ago and after running the update and a reboot, voila – Windows Phone 8.1 Update 1.

This version of Windows Phone had already been released to developer versions months earlier, and is now just being released to regular versions of Windows Phone 8.1.
Have you received Windows Phone 8.1 Update 1 on your device yet?
