    Windows Phone 8.1 Update 1 preview due week of August 4


    On July 30, Microsoft officials took the wraps off the first update to the Windows Phone 8.1 operating system.

    A developer preview of Windows Phone 8.1 Update -- as Microsoft execs curiously have christened what is expected to be the first of several updates to its phone OS -- will be available some time during the week of August 4. The odd naming convention isn't a first; the Microsoft Operating Systems Group also decided to call the first update to Windows 8.1 "Windows 8.1 Update," despite the fact there will be a second update to that operating system, most likely on August 12.

    (In the spirit of attempting to reduce confusion, I'm just going to call this Windows Phone 8.1 release "Update 1.")

    Hello Stupops, and welcome to Eight Forums.

    This "preview" update won't be out until around August 4Th, and only if you have Windows Phone Developer Preview app installed.

    MS has released 8.1 for the phones but the cell vendors are still testing a lot of phones before you get it.

    Oh my gosh, it's like they're jumping the gun or something. 8.1 RTM hasn't even been globally released on current handsets and they're already on GDR1!

    Preview software or GTFO it seems....

    It's odd. The update simply doesnt come. Should I reset the phone?

    No, just means they haven't pushed it yet where you're at.
