Very pleased that everyone will be able to install the update on the same day. All that the user will need to do is download the application Preview for Developers, which debuted along with updating GDR3. Under the new program, developers can install the update on their devices before general distribution. History with Windows Phone 8.1 should be the same. This will allow developers to write applications for the new version of the system and publish them at the time of the global distribution. Very comfortable and not have to wait months for updates.
What can you expect from Windows Phone 8.1? Currently Windows Phone 8 GDR3 very close to the level of competition – iOS and Android. But still lacks basic functions such as notification center (most expected) and voice assistant. In addition, Windows Phone 8.1 should open the door to more affordable smartphones through the use of virtual buttons and support for smartphones with two SIM cards. All this will allow Windows Phone to win more market users.
