Besides the Lumia 640 and Lumia 640 XL getting OS 15148 of Windows Phone 8.1 Update 2, the Lumia 735 and Lumia 830 are also now getting Windows Phone 8.1 Update 2 build 15148.
Our UK/GB variants of both devices are receiving the Update 2 update via Microsoft's servers with our Lumia 830 now on build 15148. Microsoft, however, has not yet updated their OS support page to reflect which regions and carriers are pushing out the update, so your experience may vary.
Windows Phone 8.1 Update 2 brings many new under the hood features for Windows Phone devices. However, only the Lumia 640, Lumia 640 XL, Lumia 735 and Lumia 830 are confirmed for the update thus far. Additionally, the LG Lancet and BLU Win HD LTE device are either shipping or getting the update as well.
Windows Phone 8.1 Update 2 Main Features
- Reorganized Settings screen with categories and search
- MKV support for video playback
- Bluetooth HID support for external keyboards
- App permission toggles
- Pin Individual Settings to the Start screen
- Reset Protection feature
Considering AT&T has not yet released the Lumia Denim update for their Lumia 830, we are leaning on the idea that they are instead doing a roll-up update with Denim and Update 2. Hope springs eternal.
Carrier released phones might take a bit longer for the Update 2 rollout to be approved. As usual, this means a rolling update over the next few weeks. Windows Central will attempt to keep track of major carrier updates and releases of this upgrade.
For now, you can post comments your carrier (if applicable) and region for others to share. Need more help? Jump into our forums for assistance:
