Soon after unveiling Windows Phone 8.1 Microsoft kicked off the Windows Phone Preview for Developers program which allowed people, who don’t necessarily need to be developers, to access software that was still being tweaked ahead of its public release. Many WP fans had been able to get their hands on WP8.1 ahead of time because of this program. Today the company has seeded a new Windows Phone 8.1 update to developer preview users and it brings some improvements for the system.
Its an incremental update so don’t expect to find any new features if you’re still using the developer preview. Today Build 8.10.14176 of Windows Phone 8.1 has been seeded to these users and brings a handful of performance improvements as well as some general fixes.
It also addresses an issue that many people were facing on their devices during the update process, error 80188308, which was caused when the system partition ran out of storage space during the update. Microsoft expects that the fix included in this update will resolve this issue for most users.
Microsoft also announced today that both HTC Windows Phone 8X and Windows Phone 8S will now be able to receive the Windows Phone 8.1 Update with this new update. This build will be rolled out for all Windows Phone users over the next few weeks.
