Developers Preview users will automatically get Windows Phone 8.1 Update 1
Earlier this month, Microsoft started rolling out Windows Phone 8.1 and Lumia Cyan updates on select Windows Phone handsets. But a majority of users who have the developer preview of Windows Phone 8.1 installed on their handsets have been unable to snag the Cyan or Windows Phone 8.1 update.
The company yesterday revealed the next update to the operating system, Windows Phone 8.1 Update 1. Hence, as you might have guessed, there are many people who are wondering if they will be able to get the newest update, which is apparently arriving next week.
