AT&T Nokia Lumia 1020 getting Lumia Cyan and 8.1 updates

It is just after 1PM Eastern Time, which means new OS updates are rolling out for those on Windows Phone. Today, we are getting many reports that the Lumia Cyan and Windows Phone 8.1 update is going out for those with a Lumia 1020 on AT&T (and presumably a few others worldwide).

As mentioned previously, if you are using the Preview for Developers program and are already on Windows Phone 8.1 or 8.1 Update, you will not get an update notification today as the hold is still in place for the Cyan update. Instead, you need to use the Nokia Recovery tool to roll back to Windows Phone 8.0. (In some instances, the 8.1 and Cyan update is already on Nokia's servers, so instead of downgrading, you can just flash the device with the update.)

Lumia Cyan should bring with it some optimizations for the OS and hardware, including proper drivers for things like Bluetooth 4.0 LE and more.

AT&T so far have not sent out a press release, updated their blog or mentioned the update on their support page (same goes for the Nokia updater), so we are flying blind on this one with your tips streaming in.

Update: It is official, Lumia Cyan is a go for the AT&T Lumia 1020. More information can be found on the AT&T Consumer Blog.

Thanks to Jason, and all the others for tips!
