Rumour: Apollo+ Windows Phone 8 update coming Q1 2013


Footfall, who last leaked pictures of the HTC Accord, has tweeted this interesting but in fact predictable little rumour.

He is claiming at Microsoft will release a Windows Phone 8 update in Q1 2013 which will be called Apollo +. He did not reveal more, but the update will presumably address the bugs noticed by some recently.

An Spring update after a Fall release has in fact been the usual pattern for the Windows Phone division, although the Apollo + moniker suggests we may also see some new features – maybe that delayed Notification Centre?

The Verge reports the update may bring always-on WIFI and finally the VPN support some business and Chinese users have been craving.
