DSC05343

Joe Belfiore just announced an upcoming update for Windows Phone 8.1, dubbed Update 1. This update is a quick release for the OS given that WP 8.1 went live just this month; and should be available as part of the developer preview program next week. In this update we can expect to see some minor updates, such as:

  • the inclusion of start screen folders on your Windows Phone
    large-live-folder-collapsed
  • Apps Corner, which allows usage of only specific apps when business mode is activated on the phone (like Kids corner, but for big kids).

  • Support for new screen resolutions
  • Smart cover support
  • Consumer VPN
  • Updates to Xbox Music

  • Merging and forwarding multiple SMSs at once

That as well as other features are part of the upcoming changelog for Update 1 of WP 8.1, which is shaping up to be a nice little update; especially coming so soon after WP 8.1. The update should be available starting August 4th, anyone excited?
