BlackBerry rolls out updated OS 10.2 with Priority Hub and improved notifications
Washington – BlackBerry has reportedly updated the operating system for its Z10, Q10, and Q5 devices which is touted to be inclusive of better features and make the OS efficient.
The sinking smartphone company has rolled out its BlackBerry 10.2 OS having better appearance in terms of proper lock screen message previews, where user can tap onto each notification and driven to the preview of the respective alert.
According to The Verge, the company has also added a Priority section to its Hub that aggregates users’ starred conversations, messages from people with whom they share their last name, and any emails marked as important.
The updated OS also allows for faster sharing as it learns which apps are shared the most and with whom, bringing those to the top of the share menu to cut down on needless taps.
It has also been made convenient to reply to texts and BBM messages directly from a notification, while improvements to copy / paste have been made, apart from a new standalone Evernote app, support for Bluetooth 4.0 and Miracast.
The report said that BlackBerry has specifically said that not all carriers will be releasing this update.
