You Can Now Download The Third Update For Windows Phone 8.1

Windows Phone 8.1 is still only available as a developer preview version for enthusiasts and early adopters, but according to a recent tweet by Microsoft’s Joe Belfiore, all development on the mobile operating system is now complete.

Good news, then, that the company has a new update to the software now available for download.

Do keep in mind that the update only polishes some things up, and according to most reports does not bring any new feature or improvement. Instead, API tweaks are said to be the only real changes in, what is the third update for Windows Phone 8.1.

As a matter of pure fact, the second update to the platform brought a bit more changes to the operating system. But anyway, version number 8.10.12397.895 has now been pushed live.

And you will be able to grab it in the next couple of hours, if not right away. All you have to do is go to the Settings > Phone Update > Check for update section of your device.

Since Windows Phone 8.1 is currently in final testing phase, there is every chance that this is not the final update to the mobile operating system — or rather the developer preview build.

Either way, the full and final version should not be all that far away now.
