All BlackBerry 10 users will be excited to find out that their devices will be receiving BlackBerry OS 10.3.2, along with BlackBerry Blend 1.2. In a post on their official blog, BlackBerry has announced that 'over the coming weeks' users will begin seeing the software update hitting their devices. With these new updates, users will notice enhancements across their device, as well as improvements for security and privacy.
Some of the new features that users will see in these updates include:
- BlackBerry Blend 1.2 - provides a fresh, new user interface based on our customer's feedback. This new design makes navigating and interacting with your messages and content both faster and easier.
- Anti-theft protection in BlackBerry Protect - As you know, privacy and security is at the heart of BlackBerry's DNA. BlackBerry Protect allows you to disable the device is it's lost or stolen ensuring no one can wipe and reactive your BlackBerry.
- Camera - The camera enhancements with 10.3.2 include: low light performance in auto-mode, improved face-detection, and reduced blur caused by motion. All of these make taking pictures in any situation as easy as point-and-shoot.
- BlackBerry Calendar - Meetings. Meetings. And more meetings. Many of us have full schedules, and with the 10.3.2 update, the BlackBerry Calendar comes to the rescue. And back by popular demand, your BlackBerry Calendar month view will show shrinking & growing date numbers depending on how busy your schedule is that day to show you just how busy the workday is at a glance.
Of course, the update will need to gain carrier approval, so there is no exact date at this time as to when you will see the update. Keep an eye out for an update notification, and be sure to let us know when you begin seeing it. Just as before, ShopBlackBerry and Amazon purchased devices have seemingly been fast-tracked with many already having received the update.
