Microsoft is currently preparing an update for Windows Phone 8, codenamed Apollo Plus according to sources. The new OS update will bring new features to Windows Phone 8 that weren’t ready for its initial release.

These features, which will be pushed to devices over the air, contain VPN support, audio improvements, and a Wi-Fi connection fix to enable an “always-on” connection. In addition, sources have also confirmed it will be fixing Bluetooth issues being experienced by some users.

As far as a Notification Center and other features users have been vocalizing since the new OS’s inception, Microsoft said it “ran out of time” on this feature but is said to have plans to implement it at a later date. Other features will be announced by Microsoft at Mobile World Congress in February.

What other features would you like to see in an upcoming Windows Phone update?

  • I think the notification center would be the best thing they could add. Hopefully make it function better than those on Android and iPhone.

    • I’m fine without a notification center to be honest. That’s what the live tiles are for and more developers should take advantage of them.

  • Awesome but it sucks we have to wait until February :/

      its febuary and nothing happened

      • Well it’s not Mobile World Congress yet. The article said it would be announced at Mobile World Congress. We’ll see though.

  • I use an HTC One X as my main phone and a Windows Phone 8S as a secondary/backup. The 8S is a great little gadget, I’ve had it for about a month, works flawless. I can get over the fact that the number of apps is limited, at least the essentials are there. But what really bothers me is the inability to install apps to the SD card. I have to rely on about 1.9 Gb of internal memory… I know it’s a low-mid-range device and maybe I shouldn’t complain, but still… If android could pull it off (the update from 1.6 donut to 2.1 eclair) microsoft surely can. Installing apps directly the SD card is a MUST!

    • I agree with you here. I have a Nokia Lumia 920, and it has more than enough memory for what I need it for. However, the ability to install apps directly on the SD card would be great. Or possibly on SkyDrive πŸ˜‰
