Settings gets a visual refresh in Windows Phone 8.1 Update 2

The new Lumia 640 and 640 XL that were just announced at Mobile World Congress both come out of the box with Windows Phone 8.1 Update 2. On the face of it there's nothing much different, but the settings menu has been given a little visual refresh and organization.

Now, as you'll see up top, there's no longer just a long list of menu items, they're broken up into sections like network + wireless, personalisation and more. You no longer have the swipe to access application settings, too, everything is in the one list, broken up with different headers.

A small change, but a change nonetheless.
