One of the biggest updates to Windows Phone 8, simply titled WP8.1, is set to officially be shown off in early 2014. This doesn't mean we don't get leaks and rumours, however, so here's the latest one. According to The Verge, a couple of images have been leaked that show some of the new features and possible changes to the UI in Windows Phone 8.1
The notification centre
The first image shows a Lumia 620 with the much-awaited notifications centre. The notification centre seems to be accessible through a tile which counts out users' notifications. The same image also shows some sort of unified tile for Skype and Outlook, with the Live Tile update for both services being shown on the same tile.
The ability to select multiple tiles
The second one shows the notification tile as well, but more importantly, it shows that WP8.1 will give users to select more than a tile at a time. This can potentially make reorganising your Windows Phone's home screen much more intuitive than having to do it one tile at a time.
The last update we heard about was the Windows Phone 8 General Distribution 3 update. It was revealed back in August that Microsoft has been working on it and that it has new features such as rotation lock, UI changes to Live Tiles and a driving mode options for cars. Initially, the update will be available for the Nokia phablet and newer devices, and then to the other existing devices before the year ends.
We’ll undoubtedly learn more about Windows Phone 8.1 as its expected 2014 showing draws closer.
