Earlier this month, the man responsible for leaking screenshots of Windows 8.1's first update claimed Microsoft would release the upgrade sometime in March
, though he didn't provide a specific date. According to a new report, that date is March 11.
ZDNet's Mary Jo Foley, who has a strong track record for her accuracy
of Microsoft-related rumors, says one of her most "accurate and trusted sources" told her Windows 8.1 Update 1 will be released March 11; she further states that Windows Phone 8.1 will be released at about the same time as well. Foley says there's no indication if Microsoft will release future upgrades similar to Update 1 prior to the next version of Windows, which has the codename "Threshold."
