Windows Phone 8.1 Preview updated to version 12393
It’s just after 1PM ET, and Microsoft’s servers are blazing with a hot new update for Windows Phone 8.1. The update will bump the OS to version 8.10.12393.890 and it's about 21 MB in size, though what changes the update includes is currently not known. This is the second update to come out for Windows Phone 8.1. The first update for Windows Phone 8.1 came in mid-May and introduced battery improvements.
Want to grab the update? Head into Settings > Phone Update > Check for updates to get the latest.
We’ll update this article as more information comes in!
Update: For some, the Windows Phone boot screen has now changed from left to right (as seen above) for some users, which matches the Lumia 630. Other previously had the boot screen on the right, so may not be new for some of you.
Thanks, everyone for the tips!

Much helpful So settings
Many quiet hours wow
so those changes aint for all
other changes include
* Calender opens very fast, before it used to take like 1-2 sec to open.
* The performance has increased beyond my expectaction. Before apps used to take 1-2 sec now its very zippy...
* still quite hours doesnt show up unless cortana is on Definately microsoft is working really hard... am very happy thank you microsoft and thank you wpcentral for updating us... it was worth 21mb and was worth the while!!!!!
EDIT: nvm, it works fine now. It was just a warning message. COMES WITH BACKGROUNDS :D ==============
you have the full update. We dont have the piece from nokia yet so intil we all do there may be a few quirks. Heres a easy explanation and its true for all platforms. Beta- is bleeding edge release version - leading edge couple of patches later -really quite stable Just pick the spot you can live with and be happy.
Haven't checked it
Switched 3 HTC 8X and 2 Lumia 920 because of this even when i was on WP8.0
With WP8.1 became even worse so i hope this update will fix the overheating/massive battery consumption issues!
It's a shame for MS to make a so beautifull OS that no begun to evolve more rapidly and have major issues like these!
it said failed to update.
However OS version has changed to latest Anyone got the same error
And here I was thinking the plan was to bring Windows, Windows RT and WP closer together...
using lumia 925 in india.
Did anybody is suffering from the same?
Please notice me why this has done to me...?
Yes I'm referring to live tiles not loading.
This problem is not happening now.
And I'm proud ;)
Kept getting error messages when I tried to upload a photo from outside Facebook app.
Even Quiet hours is missing.
Before when somebody used to send me (just today) several text it was a painful delay to show the next one, now it shows one after another really quick.
Hopefully I have explained well. ;)
My 925 32GB feels snappier, Boots remarkably faster and Quiet Hours are in place @ the Settings menu...
Also my device is hotter, I'm writing this message and the back of my 925 is *hot* :/ perhaps snappier comes at a price(?)
Swype is fine
Boot screen is the same
Quiet hours was turned on after reboot
Said something was wrong with my SD card (?)
Double tap to wake it's still but sensitive enough to wake up the first try
Damn! I don't need Cortana but I'd like Quiet Hours. Also: splash screen => still only the Windows logo, without the text.
- Notification centre slides down smoother
- Cortana launches faster
Apart from that, didn't spot any differences :) 1020
Oh yeah, after the update my 8X's start up logo is still the same (like the windows 8 logo) and no quiet hours.
I haven't got it so....
I made Bing search also..
But not available..
[ Lumia 520 - Region INDIA ]
When i update this version my all apps which was installed in eternal memory card are again reinstalling.:(
It's means when next update will come out gonna happened again :(
Why this option is not available in developers preview for lumia handsets while it's available for HTC 8S.
You still can't scroll to the top of your message if you type more than three or four sentences. Urgh!!
Nokia Lumia 920
But the only problem I had was.. Around 8 apps were ready for update on my store as I turned off auto upload when I traveled.. But after this .890 update.. Only 3 apps are shown needed update on the store.. One of the update that went missing was subway surfers.. So I opened the game and it didn't update nor showed an update in the store.. But other than that I have no issues..
Someone here are saying that QUITE HOURS are available for each & everyone irrespective of Cortana..
I haven't seen any thing like that and this update may be minor one which fixes bugs...
And also I haven't seen a change in windows logo too..
It's still the same BLUE one.. [ LUMIA 520 - INDIAN region ]
Why don't Microsoft reveal changes in 2nd update ?
1 processes are smoother than before and leads less.
2 the numbers in the OS have changed.
3 my screen used to light up a few seconds after pressing the power button(this started happening a few weeks ago) now it is normal
Lumia 520 India
But my phone boot screen has not changed as it reported.
But still please solve the Cortana's problem on HTC phones.
What more I want is interactive notification, handwriting and speech keyboard support, without touch activation of CORTANA and attachment of mails to calendar.
