That’s because the two new smartphones that Microsoft announced at Mobile World Congress 2015, Lumia 640 and Lumia 640 XL, earlier this week ship with this update pre-installed.

Windows Phone 8.1 Update 2 has support for Bluetooth keyboards so users can take advantage of such accessories with their smartphones.

Microsoft has also changed the way settings work through a list that is organized by categories. Users will now also be allowed to pin individual settings directly on the home screen allowing for easy one-tap access to the most crucial of settings.

There’s still no word as yet from Microsoft on when it plans on releasing Windows Phone 8.1Update 2 for all supported devices. On the other hand Windows 10 for Phones is expected to arrive for all Windows Phone 8.1 devices later this year.
