BlackBerry has issued a new OS update today for the Z10 that will be making its way around the world. According to the Inside BlackBerry Blog, the new update, OS 10.0.10.85, will be "rolling out [to] all carrier partners around the globe over the coming weeks," though some are already seeing it.
Right now, BlackBerry 10 users in Canada on Rogers, Fido and Telus have begun to see the OTA available to them, so if you're on one of these networks, check for the update.
How to update your software on BlackBerry 10
Settings > Software Updates > Check for Updates > — then follow the on screen steps to install.
Unfortunately, it seems that updates will still have to be approved by carriers in some form before they're pushed out to us, so you may see this update for some time.
Check out the improvements of OS 10.0.10.85 below:
3rd Party App Performance
We've improved performance for 3rd party applications, so developers can build apps that run fast and smooth for you. With this update, you might want to keep an eye out for some fresh new app launches in March, like WhatsApp.
Phone, Calendar, and Contacts
Among the top improvements and features are fixes for Gmail calendars on BlackBerry 10. You’ll also find improvements in the BlackBerry Hub for logging calls log and how conversations are handled. We've also made general improvements to importing contacts from online sources.
We’ve optimized the camera for better photos in low-light situations. You’ll love the difference this makes for photos where you don’t use a flash – like the Time Shift Camera feature.
Browser and Media
With more and more of you using the gorgeous screen on the BlackBerry Z10 to consume online videos and media, we've made a number of improvements to the software in the way the browser handles video playback to provide a fantastic experience.
The software team has included a number of battery life optimizations with over 60 battery saving improvements since launch to keep you moving. These combined improvements are designed so that you see improvements in battery life and heavy users especially should see a longer average usage per charge cycle.
Aside from these official improvements, the calendar bug that has annoyed many users has been fixed, as well the voicemail bug. Also, calls will now come in while the device is in Bedside Mode. If you find any new updates, let us know in the comments below!
