Microsoft has released another update this week for its next generation mobile OS, Windows Phone 8.1, and you can download it now.
Windows Phone 8.1 preview is available for anyone to download. And this week, on the heels of an update last month that improves battery life, another update is available.
Windows Phone 8.1 version 8.10.12393.890
You can get this update, and any new updates simply by going to Settings > Phone Update > Check for Updates. The size of this update is about 21 MB.
To verify everything went correctly, had to Settings > About > More Info to see the precise OS version which will be 8.10.12393.890.
There isn’t much information on this update other than it improves Quiet Hours by being global, and doesn’t require Cortana. Also, there is a difference in the boot screen that replaces the stand-alone Windows logo and includes “Windows Phone” text — which is natively shown on a Nokia Lumia 630.
On my Nokia Lumia 520, Action Center seems to be snappier and more responsive, of course that is subjective and the 520 is the lowest model phone. Users of higher end Nokia’s might notice other stability or performance enhancements.
If you are the proud owner of a high end Nokia Lumia, definitely leave us a comment and see what improvements you are seeing.
Not a whole lot to see here, but if you’re a Windows Phone enthusiast, you’ll definitely want to pick it up.

I cannot update ,I checked but it shows your phone is up to date ,but my OS version is still 8.10.12382.878 ,what to do now.plz help
Not quite noticeable, even though I noticed it, but the animation for the time fading away when you swiped up from the lock screen to the password-entering part has been slightly updated.
Before the animation only faded smoothly when you slid up the screen at a normal pace. However, if you slid up pretty quickly, it didn’t fade but rather ..flicked off like a switch. It fades smoothly when you swipe up fast now :)
One thing I noticed was in the store app when looking at an applications comments now on the right side of the comment is shown the model of the phone the comment was made by.
It was available long before
I need to control data connection from the activity center… :/
that is the very basic thing that is missing from the windows phone 8.1
Phone has become too sluggish post this update, any way it can be rolled back?
Before I updated to the dev preview of Windows phone 8.1, my phones charge rate was about 36% per hour. After the dev preview update it was 31%per hour. After the latest update it has accelerated all the way to 41% per hour
