In a bid to keep the flame under control, the Canadian smartphone makers has finally started rolling out the first ever ‘over-the-air’ firmware update for its QNX-based mobile operating system.
BlackBerry has highlighted five major improvements that users should instantly notice in the new update, third-party applications should now run faster and smoother, the BlackBerry 10′s built-in [and quite zippy] web browser has received some under-the-hood tweaks to improve its overall multimedia playback performance, BlackBerry has also promised a fix for the camera’s much maligned low-light picture-taking capabilities on the BlackBerry Z10.
As stated on the company’s blog post, the way BlackBerry Hub handles call logs and conversations has been tweaked, too, not to mention, importing contacts from online sources.
Last but not least is the battery life, BlackBerry’s software team has purportedly done over 60 battery saving improvements since launch on the BB10 OS and has promised that heavy users of the Z10 should now be able to get more out of their lovely smartphones for every charge.
It’s safe to speculate that the roll out is being done in phases to minimize impact on BlackBerry’s servers, the firmware update’s total file size amounts to a hefty 150 megabytes so it’s best to download the package via WiFi, just go to Settings -> Software Updates -> Check for Updates to find out if it’s already available for your Z10.
