BlackBerry 10 has come a long way since it was first introduced, so much that we're having a hard time keeping track of what's new in each OS update. We've done some leg work with plenty of help from the CrackBerry forums (seriously - you guys are a huge resource) and have compiled a master change log for all of the major OS updates thus far.

While we've tried to pin down everything the best we can, keep in mind that we may have missed a few small features here and there. If you know of anything that should be added for any of the previous releases, be sure to drop a comment and we'll get the list updated. We'll keep this one going as more updates are officially released so be sure to check back when you want to find out what's new.

10.0.1

February 2013

OS 10.0.1 was the first update from BlackBerry after the initial release of BlackBerry 10. The update brought along mostly fixes but added things like improved Bedside Mode, camera optimizations and battery life improvements.

  • Battery Life - over 60 battery saving improvements

10.1

July 2013

The OS 10.1 release was the first major OS update for BlackBerry 10. Here users got added features that included message gestures in the Hub, simple password support, email sync settings and much more.

  • Next/previous message navigation shortcut: use a simple gesture to quickly move to the last or next message without having to return to the full message list. Within any message in the BlackBerry Hub:
  • Swipe to the right and then down (like an upside-down L) to move forward to the next message
  • Swipe to the right and then up (like a backwards L) to move back to the previous message
  • Keyboard shortcut for last unread message: on the BlackBerry Q10 smartphone, pressing the “U” key in the BlackBerry Hub will take you to the last unread message
  • Email synchronization: ActiveSync and IMAP email users can adjust syncing preferences to keep emails on their BlackBerry smartphone for an unlimited time period
  • Two factor authentication for Twitter and LinkedIn: to improve security, if you have two factor authentication enabled for LinkedIn and Twitter, you’ll be sent a verification ID via a text message that you’ll enter into the settings when setting up those accounts
  • Addition of a search field in BlackBerry Remember: quickly search for items in the app
  • Support for simple passwords: simplified password entry from the lock screen and work space authentication prompts. The simple password feature utilizes a reduced keyboard layout containing only numeric characters and allows you to set a numeric PIN for your smartphone or work space password
  • New interactive tutorials:
    • Tutorial topics: swipe up from the bottom to close an app, swipe down from the top to reveal settings
    • Each tutorial provides text instructions and an opportunity to perform the gesture
  • IT policy to separate work and personal accounts in the BlackBerry Hub:
    • BlackBerry Hub Work displays only work-related accounts, like a work email account and enterprise instant messaging
    • BlackBerry Hub Personal displays only personal-related accounts, like a personal email account, SMS, BBM, phone calls and social media apps
  • Input support for “strokes” for Simplified and Traditional Chinese
  • Input and UI translation for Korean
  • BlackBerry World:
    • Ability to view video previews in landscape mode via HDMI out
    • UX enhancements
    • Recently viewed:
      • See up to the last 12 pieces of content you’ve viewed
      • Clear all recently viewed items or remove individual ones by long pressing and selecting delete viewed item from the context menu
      • Enable a private browsing mode that will disable both recent search tracking and recently viewed
    • My Wishlist:
      • Add items to your wish list from a content details page
      • Add up to 48 items to your wish list. When the 49th item is added, the first item added to the list is automatically removed
    • Facebook:
      • Newsfeed UI refresh
      • Ability to create a photo album before uploading a photo and upload a photo to a specific album
      • Ability to tag friends in photos that were previously uploaded
    • Twitter:
      • Content is automatically updated in all tabs without having to manually refresh
      • Improved search for top tweets, photos and related profiles
    • LinkedIn:
      • Import and invite contacts from your personal email address to connect on LinkedIn through the new Add Connections page in settings
      • Easily view the number of unread messages and invitations from the inbox page
      • UI improvements
      • View the details of companies you follow and follow suggested companies
      • Delete and archive messages in the inbox
      • See the most recent updates from your network when the app is minimized in Active Frames
      • Change your profile photo from the You page, the full screen view of your photo or the native picture viewer
      • Search by connection name, headline and company

10.2

October 2013

OS 10.2 was a vast improvement over the initial BlackBerry 10 release. This release added many big new features that included lock screen notifications, priority hub, instant previews, Miracast and Bluetooth 4.0 support.

  • Lock screen notification previews - Users can now view notifications from the lock screen for email, SMS, Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn and other native applications.
  • Priority Hub - Priority Hub allows users to view their priority messages in the Hub quickly and easily. Priority items are tagged with a red stripe and are specified as high-priority, messages from conversations you started or contacts with the same last name.
  • Attachment view - This view in the Hub allows you to see any files that you have received in messages, organized by sender, date, name or file type.
  • Instant preview and reply - Instant previews are available for email, SMS, BBM, Twitter, Facebook and LinkedIn. The previews show in the form of a dropdown when in any application and allow for quick viewing of messages. SMS and BBM also allow for quick reply from the notification dropdown.
  • I Will be Late - Added to the Calendar popup, the I Will Be Late message allows users to send a message to attendees notifying if you will be late for a scheduled appointment. 
  • Reply Now - This feature lets you send a BBM or SMS when declining an incoming call. 
  • New copy/paste buttons - The copy/paste features have been revamped with a new UI and simpler menu.
  • New typing audio feedback - Added feedback for touchscreen keyboards
  • Stand-alone Evernote - Evernote is now a standalone app though it still integrates with BlackBerry remember
  • Adaptive Sharing - The sharing menu now adapts to your use and shows services to which you share more frequently on top of the share menu.
  • Natural Sound - Natural Sound is high-quality audio for the BlackBerry Z30 as well as additional codecs added to earlier devices.
  • Miracast and Wi-Fi Direct - Miracast support allows wirelessly shunting the image on your device to another, bigger screen. This is done over Wi-Fi Direct, which basically connects two devices by one starting up its own little hotspot and the other connecting to it. Wi-Fi Direct support has a wide range of uses, including file transfers and syncing. 
  • USB Host - USB host adds new features for connectivity including USB flash drive support via a PC.
  • Android Jelly Bean Runtime - A new runtime for Android 4.2.2 apps
  • Bluetooth 4.0 - Bluetooth 4.0 Low Energy allows for consistent, low-demand connections via Bluetooth
  • Camera updates - Autofocus logic improved, grid options added, share and delete added to preview.
  • More Smart Tag options - Adds Smart Triggers, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, Contact, Event, and Geo Location for NFC tags
  • Browser improvements
  • New Device Monitor - Native app to view CPU and battery usage on the device
  • Multiple Alarms - Ability to set multiple alarms within the clock app
  • Group SMS  - A new checkbox that pops up when adding multiple people to a new SMS that enables group conversations
  • Dark and light themes - Specific apps let you switch between dark and light UI themes, including calendar and contacts. 
  • Keypress speed dial - It doesn't work quite like it used to, in that you have to launch the phone app before holding down the key you assign to a contact, but it's still fairly convenient if you're running low on space with the software-based quick dial shortcuts.

Hate to be that guy who replies to a comment just to be on the first page even though the reply has nothing to do with the original comment...but...

I can already do remote searching on my 10.2. You have it as an update in 10.2.1

10.2.0.429 was released officially on the Bell Network in Nova Scotia this morning.

heyjohnnybravo

Steady pace..I have really enjoyed watching this platform develop and am excited for the future!

Gord Cluthe

This is true. It's clearly evident from this changelog that BlackBerry is trying hard to change any sort of perception that they're not evolving or not listening to their customers.

I think that the QNX RTOS platform is also a lot more versatile and allows them to quickly make changes that the old BBOS couldn't do quite as easily... which is of course, speculation ... as I'm not a Developer.

Exciting times, nonetheless..!!

browse_only

Me too. With all these updates to BB10, I can't even predict what BB11 will look like and offer - assuming BlackBerry will stick with this OS.

ThaMunsta

Awesome! :D I might do 10.2.1 soon. Thanks for the list, I know it wasn't easy to round up all the features.

Adam Zeis

I can't take all the credit on this one. Got most of the info from the awesome forums members. Go CrackBerry!

What changed in the media player? Good Lord I hope it finally supports landscape mode....

Posted via CB10

RyanGermann

A suggestion... The "next message gesture" could be described as "like the number 7" rather than an "upside down L".

slagman5

Yah, might skip 10.2 and go straight for 10.2.1...

That's what I did... from 10.1 to the 10.2.1.1055 leak. No regrets! It's flipping awesome

The OS is getting better all the time. Going to upgrade from Z10 to Z30.

Posted via CB10

suanshine

And why z30 is better? Don't you afraid of low ppi? Do you feel comfortable with bigger than z10 display?

Posted via CB10

MyStCaL

I went to Z10 to Z30, and haven't noticed any difference except for how much smoother everything is. The larger screen is much better to type on and the lower ppi isn't noticeable unless you have both phones right next to each other. And you can't beat the stereo speakers.

Posted via CB10

slagman5

Just wait, if the rumors of the Z50 is true, you'll kick yourself for upgrading to the Z30. I'm hoping the rumors for the Q30 are true, that would be awesome. :-)

misdeismo

Not sure if this was mentioned but I would like to add for 10.2.1 I noticed that if you link your phone to the car it will display a graphic on the lock screen indicating it's connected.

Regarding this it will also automatically suggest applications in app world that relate to use of the phone in the car.

Pretty cool stuff.

Not sure when this was added. My guess is 10.2 but I just found out today that I can use Maps and turn by turn navigation in landscape :)

I have notice it also but it was not mention any where

The future is black....

Why no FM Radio on Z10?

Ebscer

This is a hardware limitation...

suanshine

This is strange that top device have such limitation

Posted via CB10

morpho4444

Is one of the magic "fucks" given by BBRY to its fans, and of course Kevin will say, that BB should focus on other than bb10 for pb, on other than miracast for z10 and on other than fm radio on z10. Why did I bought a top device that wasn't suppose to have future features?

supraking

Add plain text email support! Not sure if this came in 10.2.1 or earlier but I just found it on .1055!

Rickster1

Yes BB10 has progressed in leaps and bounds!! It is really fantastic the amount of work BlackBerry has put into the OS. Way faster upgrades than any other platform. Regardless of the future, BlackBerry has really delivered and keeps delivering on the promise of BB 10!!!! They must be given credit!!!

TuneIn radio

Sent via Zed10

ehcanuck

Not everyone has unlimited data. FM radio transmitter would have been a free radio source and on real time (for what it's worth). I have 5GB and I'm a big TuneIn fan so this doesn't really make much of a difference for me anyway.

stengel680

+1. Most games on radio are subject to blackout on online streaming.

Posted via CB10

Notcho you gonna pay for our data charges? Not the same thing unfortunately as straight-up FM but, that said, TuneIn is a great radio app.

How many of the features attributed to 10.1 are actually on officially released versions rather than later leaks?

With Verizon, for example, I'm on 10.1.0.2151 and quite a few of the listed features just aren't there.

Doesn't affect the accuracy of the article, but I'm curious how many with an "official" 10.1 are on a version high enough to see all those benefits.

Posted via CB10

misterabrasive

Exactly right about Verizon! Always last in line for updates.

Never, but Never, Question the Engineers Judgment!

bill-ns

Something I noticed today... in 10.2.1, you can now paste a soft token code into the field when required to make a VPN connection. Previous versions would let you copy from SecurID, but you couldn't paste it... and you couldn't swap back to the SecurID app when the token prompt was up.
I had suggested this to ideamailbox@blackberry.com a month ago. I'm guessing it was already in the works when I did!

Do you have bbm channels? That's probably why you don't see them.

I don't either, but I do have Channels, I was wondering if that has something to do with it?

I don't like the incoming calls screen I prefer the previous one. Is there any chance to keep it......aaaah

I'm with you... they added plenty of toggles, this should be one of them.

Posted via CB10

thatplaybookguy

I love the new incoming calls screen, find it so much easier to answer or hang up and the swipe motion doesn't cover the contacts face anymore.

BBrickk

Just give us a choice between the two

Posted via Z10 STL100-3 using CB10. Fido, Toronto.

scrapmetal58

Agreed. The new one looks almost identical to Android, which I also don't like.

rocker_man1

Confused. Does this mean that when in bedside mode on the leak that phone calls will no longer come through? I want to have calls come through on bedside mode. If it turns to airplane mode I can no longer use it. Period.

Also is their a way to turn off the new call screen? Sliding up or down is great. I don't want an android or apple answering slider. Booooo

Posted via CB10

ehcanuck

I'm sure it's a setting you can turn on or off for airplane mode during bedside mode. I don't think it will have to be mandatory, wouldn't make much sense.

Posted via my Z10 keyboard!

doubtazul

Booo indeed! My 9 year old prefers using my Q10 over the other family members phones which are Galaxy S4, Nexus 4, and iphone 4S? She says it's mucho intuitive. More so than others. In particular, the whole swipe up on screen motion vs hitting a home button to go and find anything you may need. Go figure!

Posted via CB10

thatplaybookguy

that is what BB likes to hear, that its so intuitive even a 9 year old gets it. They should make a Hello Kitty edition. sell like hell

randycclark

You have several settings in bedside mode - turn off all network connections OR phone calls or you can leave them active. I use it to silence messages, but my calls come through just fine. Important feature since I have no landline.

ehcanuck

Cannot wait for the new update! I want a steady build so maybe I'll wait it out for a couple more leaks or else just wait for the official build!

Posted via my Z10 keyboard!

bbfanboi

Very nice, Adam! I love that! You're my new best friend :)

captainbdsc

Do you think they will ever bring back from BBOS one time alarms? I used to use it all the time for critical appointments and tasks. It is easy to ignore normal notifications, but an alarm you have to look at and address immediately.

pbeasley

This is in 10.2.1 leak. You can add multiple alarms and set a recurrence. If you set it to none it will be a one time alarm.

captainbdsc

Nice! Do you know if you can add the alarm thru the calendar? That's what I used to do... either way, I think it is time for me to install the leak!

Thanks Adam for this detailed description of the many new items in each upgrade. I am still "discovering" and getting used to the many new features in the latest 10.2.1... My only problem is now to chose between "Remember" and "Evernote". Still using the first one mostly and waiting to work more on the second.

Bold_until_Hybrid_Comes

You noted FM radio was not on all devices but failed to mention this for miracast

morpho4444

Just like any other BB Fiascos. Lesson learnt, DO NOT BUY FIRST TIME DEVICES from BBRY. Do not buy the first tablet, the first bb10 phone, the first computer or nothing that is the first. Wait for the next ones and save yourself a rage of anger and frustration.

adycoke2

i really don't understand why all the articles about the new update always omitted Q5 when they mention about new speed dial:
"Speed Dial from homescreen (Q10)"
" Q10 speed dials"
...and i mean ALL the articles.....can anybody tell me WHY?

kennyblack_sd

Because the Q5 has speed dial, it come with it by default. I am running the 10.2.0.424 and I have speed dial features on my Q5

Posted via CB10 on my white Q5!

adycoke2

i hve the same device with the same OS,can you tell me how you acces spead dial from Home Screen?Think about it

mikr009876

Frightening to read through the list and realize where we have been in February.....yet in the fast paced world of the mobile phone, that's the rate of change that's called for.

DStLouis

One thing I would like to see in future OS release is the ability to "pin" the virtual keyboard of Z10, Z30, and make available direct access features that physical keyboard devices benefits (Q10, Q5).

Pushing the concept a bit further, it would be nice if the OS then automatically switch to "Q mode" with apps running in half screen size, no rotation, ...
-> so one OS for all

->unpinning the keyboard to return to full screen "Z mode"

I think it was really good idea to integrate accuweather with clock app. I wish I had the 10.2.1 to check the implementation.

I want the choice.... I dont want "Airplane mode" while bedside mode, I want "Phone call only mode".
Others may want something different, so let the choice to the users.

nutellapr

Phone call only is available as an option. Is equivalent to Silent except Phone Calls in BBOS.

Posted via CB10

Kalendel

Exactly this. When I'm on call, I'm on call 24/7. I need airplane mode to be at least an option to turn off during bedside mode or bedside becomes useless. I didn't realize this was the case with 10.2.1 but at least now I know why my phone didn't ring this morning when the boss called me.

10.2 : while playing music, you can browse your library and bring up a context menu to add songs "play next" and "play last". ie. Build a play list in the fly.

That awesome list of changes, plus these these small changes on 10.2.1:

1. The animation for the selected option from the context menu has changed from the selected option jumping out to simply blinking for a second with blue background. For example, mark a message as read in the hub. You'll know.

2. When reading messages in the hub, you now get forward and backward arrows for the next and the previous messages.

3. And the best one - the return of the 20+ hours battery life on a single charge.

Somewhere along the way the circle used to edit text got bigger. The color of misspelled words...or was it swipe suggestions - changed from blue to green, too.

Agreed! I love Z10, despite its hardware limitations. Only a little sad I can't get FM. I wasn't that bothered about Miracast, would be nice to have the option, but it would have been the NFC tagging - really cool feature, just don't use it much myself...

Well done and THANK YOU! Isn't 10.0.1.x supposed to be the 10.0.10.x update instead, which was coming from 10.0.9.x?

Great job with these lists! Should 10.1 be separated from 10.1 MR, or is there not enough to justify this?

Thank you for making me even more anxious for 10.2 on my Verizon Z10. Will one of the updates down the road bring with it the ability to bypass carriers for all other os updates? One can only wish...

booker1953

Great list of additions and updates. I'm running 10.2.1.1055 and most of it is really cool. I do find it hard to believe that not many people mention that the notifications need to have a volume control like in the BBOS 7.1 days! That is really the only major thing that I am waiting for as who wants ring tone volume for emails or BBM to be the same volume, unless I've missed something somewhere....
Thanks BlackBerry, you're doing well.

"Airplane-Mode automatically turned on in Bedside Mode ". Is this a user configurable option? I do use bedside mode every night. Currently, on 10.2.0.1791, bedside mode = phone calls only. I don't want to be woken up by emails etc. coming in, but DO need to be able to receive emergency phone calls (elderly mother .......)

It's optional as is phone calls

10.2.1:
Drop down menu also includes the workspace lock button (as it did before) but now it is also for swapping between work and personal.

I'm interested in the accuweather in the clock. I don't see that on 10.2.1.1055

nutellapr

He means the weather icons in the world clock. I've already submitted a Feature Request on the Blackberry Beta forum to add weather icon + temp + hi/lo to the clock so it's the first thing you see in the morning (if using phone as an alarm) so you know right away how to dress and if you need to bring an umbrella or a snow shovel.

Add up to 48 items to your wish list. When the 49th item is added, the first item added to the list is automatically removed

It's actually called Bookmarks. In BB World when viewing an app's information page, tap the More button, and then Add Bookmark, or even just the app icon in the lists, tap and hold on the app icon, Add Bookmark. The bookmarks are in My World at the bottom..

I have been running 10.2.0.424 since the day it was released, and I love all the improvements over 10.1. Still, I can barely wait for the official 10.2.1 release and all that will bring. BlackBerry and app developers have both shown they subscribe to 'continuous improvement' ideals. My Q10 is one of the best tools ever to wear with both my engineering and personal hats. I only have a single complaint: duplicating (quadrupling) contacts, seemingly related to Skype/Android apps. This continues to be a big problem for me with 10.2.0. Is there any hint of a fix?

This is absolutely outstanding. It is clear BlackBerry is on the fast track to make bb10 competitive and feature rich.
BlackBerry 10 seems to be fully scalable with ability to add features at will!
With apparent new platforms in the works who knows what wonders will appear. I am impressed with the evolution of BlackBerry 10 and I bet the competitors are carefully watching.

BlackBerry could easily rise like a phoenix of old and regain supremacy.

Stephen Green on Z30 to CB10

JamesPtheNerd

Facebook on 10.2.1.1055 also sort of supports flow gestures again. It had briefly appeared in a 10.2.0 (or maybe a 10.1.x leak ), but had since returned.

But the hierarchy seems to be limited at a base screen (seen in the FB-specific tab overflow view), and just one dynamically changing second view (a post or picture or group)

So it's a Flow-like system, but not yet fully "Flow."

Dear BlackBerry,
I LOVE my Z10. Is there anyway you could send me one with hardware capable of FM? I'm OK without the Miracast really (although that would be nice to have as an option to use if I ever chose to), but I would LOVE FM on my Z10. :( I don't want a Z30. The functionality and size is just right for me in a Z10; but I really feel like I'm missing out here on some of the limitations that other OS 10 devices are getting - including the Q5.

*sigh* maybe by some miracle it'll be some kind of joke and they'll be like 'just kidding Z10 owners, here's what you're missing! '

So for your average Joe BlackBerry user who doesn't visit this site, how do they find out about all these great features. It doesn’t take much for BlackBerry to send out an email to their customers to get them excited.
It's a shame that most BlackBerry customers don't know about this.

With geofencing, if my BlackBerry can automatically send messages to meeting attendees to let them know if I'm running late, that would be fantastic! The device should be able to take care of these things and know approximately how long it would take to arrive at my destination and send an ETA.

How come no one is talking about Regulated BlackBerry Balance? Part of the reason people started carrying a second phone was because they didn't want companies to read their personal correspondence (emails, sms, social networking). This destroys the idea of the 'personal' space and makes me want to carry a second device.

Regulated BlackBerry Balance

Regulated BlackBerry Balance gives your organization full control over devices that have a work space and a personal space and are activated on the BlackBerry Device Service. Users with devices activated with the regulated BlackBerry Balance activation type should be aware that all data on the device can be audited by their organization, even if they are using the device or application for personal use.

To continue the thought, on our laptops are work, our company is forcing us to 'accept' an intermediate SSL cert from websense to access encrypted sites like Gmail.

Maybe I'm the only one whose OCD is being bugged by this, but the 10.1 Maintenance Release changes appear to have been piled together with the original 10.1 update. Also, wasn't Wolfram Alpha introduced in 10.2, not 10.2.1?

JAG214

I have yet been able to get the 10.2 yet, what I want to know is how come? I live in the US and I have the Z10 with ATT

WellRedd

10.2: in the contacts section, when you hold down on a letter on the right, a tab pops out to show you which letter you're selecting to make sure you are getting the right selection. Unless I am mistaken, that was not there previously (or I just took way too long to discover it)

I love what 10.2.1 includes except that the incoming call changed, I really liked was different, now looks like the others =( ... I do not know if it is optional

Does installing the leaked OS my on BlackBerry z10 STL 100-1 would create any problems in the network.

I mean last time by mistake, I unstalled STA 10.2.1.1055 update on the device at that time it was showing in my network connections that UR SIM IS NOT FROM A VALID SOURCE.

So installing the leaked OS will create any further problems for me??
