October 23, 2013 No Comments

Microsoft’s third and most likely final Windows Phone 8 update before Windows Phone 8.1 was recently detailed by the Windows Phone team. Now the update finally has an official changelog to go with that.

Update 3 Changelong: OS version: 8.0.10501.127 or 8.0.10512.142*

  • Accessibility. We’ve made several   improvements for   customers who are visually impaired.
  • Storage. Now you can easily free up   storage   space on your phone and manage temporary files. New categories   show what’s taking up space.
  • Driving Mode. Feeling distracted behind the wheel?   Driving Mode   allows you to minimize incoming calls and text messages to help you focus on   the road.
  • Screen. Reading emails in bed? You can   lock your   screen orientation so it doesn’t shift when you move your phone   around.
  • Wi-Fi. Start preserving cellular data on your phone right out of   the box—you can now connect to Wi-Fi during set up.
  • Internet sharing. Now you can   use your phone’s cellular   data connection from your Microsoft Windows 8.1 devices by   pairing them over Bluetooth.
  • Bluetooth. Several fixes were made to address known issues, and   improvements were made to connection quality for   Bluetooth   accessories.
  • Ringtones. Do more with   ringtones now.   Assign ringtones for text messages, so you’ll know who’s texting you without   even looking. Use your custom ringtones for more things—text messages, instant   messages, emails, voicemail, and reminders.
  • App switcher. Don’t look back. Now you can use the   App   switcher to quickly close apps when you’re finished with them.
  • Other improvements. Includes many other improvements to Windows Phone.

  *Your update version number depends on your specific phone model and   mobile operator
