HTC 8X and 8S not getting WP8.1 Update 1 due to driver issue

HTC Windows Phone 8 users may have noticed that, despite having signed up for the developer preview, that they have not received the Windows Phone 8.1 Update 1 update.

WPC reports on a statement from a Microsoft spokesperson explaining the issue.

They said:

"We have paused delivery of Windows Phone 8.1 Update to customers with the HTC 8X and HTC 8S who are using the Preview for Developers. Microsoft and HTC have identified an issue and are actively working to fix it, and will resume delivery of the update once a fix is in place."

The issue is believed to be due to a driver, suggesting that the devices might need a firmware update before getting the latest software.

Around 3% of Windows Phones in the market are believed to be HTC handsets, based on AdDuplex data. Are many of our readers affected by this? Let us know below.
