Update 1 for Windows Phone was only made available via developer’s preview a a few months ago, but Microsoft have already begun delivering it to some Lumia 930’s out there. This update, brings some features such as folders on the lockscreen, as well as bringing Cortana to more regions (China, Canada and the UK), along with the usual performance enhancements.
If you’ve already enrolled in the developer preview program, you’ll need to un-enroll from the program (just head to the app and remove the check-mark), then check for updates again; after which it’ll begin to install automatically. Hopefully this will finally fix the purple screen tint issue, as well as the poor battery life.
After downloading the update, it appears to have fixed the purple tint issue; where the screen gave a purple overcast in low brightness, which has thankfully been fixed now.
Good news, the update fixed the purple tint issue on the Lumia 930, screen looks very crisp now.
