The update took a while to install for us, especially at the beginning, but should be complete within 15 to 30 minutes depending on what phone you have. It weighs in at roughly 20MB in size. There appears to be no major changes, just minor fixes and improvements across the board. We’ve noticed that there is a new boot screen, which now shows off the Windows Phone flag instead of the words “Windows Phone.”
Grab the update and let us know in the comments below if you notice any new improvements. We’ve reached out to Microsoft and a company spokesperson told us they had “nothing to share at this time.”Further reading: Microsoft, Windows Phone
