Verizon HTC 8X owners have been waiting a long time for the Windows Phone 8.1 Update 1 to arrive on their devices. It was expected that the carrier will release this update late last year but it didn’t do that even after the first round of delays. Since then not much has been said about the status of this update for HTC 8X but that changes today. Verizon will be rolling out Windows Phone 8.1 Update 1 for this device later today.

Verizon has been on bit of a roll lately if you look at all of the updates that it has released over the past week so its good that the carrier remembered HTC 8X users as well, there are many Windows Phone users on Verizon who still own this device and they have waited long enough for this update.

Windows Phone 8.1 Update 1 will bring a lot of new features to the smartphone, particularly Cortana, which is Microsoft’s virtual private assistance. Countless tweaks have been made under the hood to improve the overall performance of the operating system.

A PDF posted on Verizon’s website states the release date as February 12th, that’s today, so it shouldn’t take the company more than a couple of hours to start rolling out this update to supported devices over-the-air.
