Microsoft preparing first update for Windows Phone 8

Microsoft preparing first update for Windows Phone 8

YEREVAN, November 27. /ARKA/. Microsoft is currently preparing an upd ate for Windows Phone 8, codenamed Apollo Plus. Sources have confirmed to The Verge that Apollo Plus will bring new features to Windows Phone 8 that weren't fully in scope for the initial release.

This won't be the next major version of Windows Phone, but more of a point update to push fixes and features. The Verge reports.

We're told that Microsoft is preparing to include VPN support in Windows Phone, a missing option since the rese t of Microsoft's mobile OS efforts, that will allow corporate users to connect to work systems — this feature may make it into the first Apollo Plus update. A Wi-Fi connection fix is also planned to let connections always remain on, alongside some audio improvements. Apollo Plus will also test Microsoft's ability to deliver Windows Phone 8 updates over-the-air, a change from the previous OS that required users to plug devices into PCs to get similar updates.

Microsoft has admitted it "ran out of time" on a Notification Center Windows Phone 8 feature addition, and the company will likely push additional features that failed to make the final cut as part of its upcoming update.

“We're told that Microsoft will be detailing Apollo Plus at Mobile World Congress in February,” the source states.—0-
