CNN for Windows Phone has picked up an update today. Head to the Windows Phone Store and you'll now see version 1.6 of CNN for Windows Phone. Today's update is notable for introducing enhancements to breaking news alerts and support for high resolution images in iReport.

Here's the full changelog for CNN 1.6:

  • Enhancements to breaking news alerts
  • Lumia hi-res camera now supported in iReport
  • Minor bug fixes

Alerts in older versions of the CNN for Windows Phone app will no longer work after today. It seems like the enhancements made to alerts in this new update will require you grab version 1.6 of CNN.

Those budding journalists out there will be happy to see that iReport now supports high resolution cameras found in some high-end Lumia devices. Happy reporting!
