Yesterday, Microsoft released a blog post detailing a major upcoming firmware update for the more popular devices on the platform. If you own a Lumia 950, 950XL, LG Lancet, or Lumia 830, you can switch to the Production ring and check for updates to get in on the action.
In an effort to keep these handsets fresh, Microsoft is aiming to release major firmware improvements every month or so. This should increase the lifespan of the more popular devices on the market, and allows customers to have a direct influence on the direction of the ecosystem. Through Windows Insider, users can provide feedback and feature requests, while receiving the most up to date test builds and firmware updates. February’s update, as stated above, features the following improvements:
- Stability fixes
- Improvements for GPS reliability
- Improvements for call audio quality
There are more small features being packed into the updates, but those are the major ones, and they are much appreciated. Hopefully this will become a regular thing, and we will be able to see our devices steadily improving every month, just as Google has done with the recent implementation of monthly Nexus security patches.
If you own any of these devices, check out the update and let us know your thoughts.
