You're probably enjoying Windows Phone 8.1 Update 1 that rolled out earlier today – unless you're on an HTC 8X or HTC 8S. We reported earlier today that those on the 8X and 8S we're unable to get Windows Phone 8.1 Update 1. The cause? Turns out it needs an OEM driver update from HTC.
Here's what Microsoft has said on their support forums for those unable to update to the latest build:
"There are a small set of devices for which we aren't offering the latest build of the Developer Preview program due to an identified problem that requires mobile operator or OEM driver updates. These will be offered when the official update for your phone is available."
We reached out to Microsoft for clarification but haven't heard back yet. In the meantime, it looks like the HTC 8X and 8S won't be able to get Windows Phone 8.1 Update 1 until HTC puts out the necessary driver updates. We'll let you know when that happens.
Anyone with a Samsung or HTC Windows Phone unable to get the latest update? Sound off below. Or if you did get it, do let us know.
Thanks for the tip Chris!
