Another main focus of the update is the improvement in the working of third party apps with the possibility of some new app releases like Whatsapp. The third party app improvements will allow developers build fast and smooth apps. It also contains some fixes for Gmail calendars and a few tweaks for the Blackberry Hub’s call log and conversation handling feature. Also, users will find it easy to import contact from other online sources after this update.

The update also fixes the issue with laggy online video playback. It will improve the way BB10 OS handles online video playback giving users a fantastic video viewing experience.

The 8 MP camera of the device has also improved to a great extent. After this update, the device will be able to capture better low light images with its new Time Shift Camera feature. Blackberry’s official blog post further adds “You’ll love the difference this makes for photos where you don’t use a flash — like the Time Shift Camera feature,”

So, if you are looking forward to the update, which you should be, make sure that you click on the update notification.
