BlackBerry hasn’t made any major releases this year. Back at MWC in February the company simply announced its new smartphone produced in collaboration with Foxconn and teased its next high-end smartphone not expected until fiscal 2015. However the company is due to release a major software update for BlackBerry OS. Its product manager has been given us sneak peaks of what to expect from BB OS 10.3.

Through his BBM Channel director of handheld software product management at BlackBerry, Michael Clewley, has been teasing the new update by posting screenshots. He posted one earlier this week revealing that the app icons in the next update will be much more refined, thus making the homescreen cleaner and more modern.

The screenshot posted today shows that BlackBerry is bringing back a feature from legacy OS to its latest devices. Users will be able to delete original text from an email when they reply to it or forward it to someone else. This will come in handy if you’re forwarding an email to someone but want to conceal a part of the original email. BB OS 10.0 did not offer this feature by default.

So far the company hasn’t revealed when we can expect BlackBerry OS 10.3 to be available. It has only said that the software will be released later this year.
