The next major update for BlackBerry 10 platform is OS 10.2, its going to come with an enhanced UI, support for Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean apps and BBM channels. There will be other new features as well as a host of improvements and enhancements. The update will also bring a much needed improvement for BB10 camera app, the ability to silence the shutter sound. Currently the shutter sound can not be completely silenced without the help of a third-party app. OS 10.2 will let users silence the camera shutter sound on their BlackBerry smartphones.
The announcement was made by BlackBerry Product Manager Micheal Clewley through his personal BBM Channel. He says that in OS 10.2, if the user has their profile set to silent, the “click” sound of camera shutter will be silenced as well. This is no doubt going to be appreciated by those who want to click pictures without attracting stares from people around them. Also expected in OS 10.2 update are lockscreen notifications, Wi-Fi Direct, ability to mute notifications and possibly a native Evernote app. No release time-frame is available right now for BlackBerry OS 10.2 update.
