A supplemental update for Windows Phone 8 aimed at fixing bugs and keeping up shop is being prepared by Microsoft. The Verge reports that nothing groundbreaking will be included, though a few new features that Microsoft didn’t have enough time to implement — like a proper notification center — before October’s release will be added.
Known secretly as Apollo Plus, the update will allegedly incorporate VPN support, along with Wi-Fi and audio improvements. Microsoft admitted it ran out of time on a number of features, so it sounds like the Apollo Plus update will be the company’s chance to make amends.
Additionally, Microsoft will use the upgrade as a test for OTA updates, which in the past has required users to implement through a computer. Since Microsoft just launched Windows Phone 8, we probably won’t see anything worthwhile over the next few months. The Verge claims we’ll likely see a full detailed breakdown of Apollo Plus from Microsoft at Mobile World Congress in February.
