Microsoft may have marked July 2014 as the cutoff point to when they’ll stop supporting Windows Phone 8, but until then, they’ll keep cranking out updates to help improve the platform for their customers. The next update Microsoft plans to release for Windows Phone 8 devices will reportedly support FM radio hardware, which was dropped when they introduced Windows Phone 8. The update will allow for handsets that support it, like the Lumia 920 and Lumia 820, to support FM radio signals.

In addition to Microsoft’s Windows Phone 8 update plans, Nokia is also currently planning to improve its Lumia 920 and Lumia 820 handsets by offering a new screen-activation gesture that would have owners double-tapping the screen in order to wake it up when it’s in its standby mode. We’re not sure just how many of you Nokia Lumia owners have been wanting this feature, but it seems like it’s something that will happen in the coming months. We just hope you have your double-tap finger ready for all of the tapping it’ll be doing to wake your Lumia up, or this new feature could certainly result some serious injury.
