Limited roll-out initially
It is believed that the company has started rolling out the new version of the Windows Phone software. A pilot program has been launched by the company under which only the selected users residing in specific countries are getting the update, which includes the users residing in Taiwan, Spain and Finland indicating that the rollout has been divided into stages, according to the reports.
While the manufacturer has been following a trend of updating the high-end smartphones first and then the other models, for the first time a mid-level smartphone will get the update first i.e. the Nokia Lumia 625.
The testing of the new firmware will help in getting to know the issues faced by the users so that they can be resolved before making the update global. If successful, all the nationals will get the update and will be eventually followed by users across the globe getting the update.
