Lumia 820 UK Variant Gets Lumia Cyan Update



The Lumia Cyan update has been rolled out to the Lumia 820 UK variant, bringing Windows Phone 8.1 to one of the first ever Windows Phone 8 devices.

Lumia 820 owners in the UK should get a notification that an update is available but if this hasn’t come through yet you can check for yourself by going to Settings, scrolling down to Phone Update and pressing “Check for updates“.

The Lumia Cyan update may not show on your 820 yet if it is locked to a carrier, and if you already have the 8.1 Developer Preview on your device you may have to remove this using the Nokia Software Recovery tool (available HERE).

Lumia Cyan brings some nice additions like a notification centre called the Action Center, Shape Writing, a Swype style keyboard addition and the ability to customise your Start Screen tiles with pictures. Unfortunately anyone expecting Cortana will be disappointed as it will not come to the UK until the GDR 1 update (available as a Developer Preview now).

Hope you enjoy the update, and let us know your favourite features.
