By May 12th, 2014 AT 12:54 AM

Microsoft has announced on its website that it will start rolling out Windows Phone 8.1 update from June 24th for compatible devices. The recently announced Lumia 930, Lumia 630, Lumia 630 Dual SIM and Lumia 635 will come with Windows Phone 8.1 pre-installed. Microsoft is supposed to announce some of these devices on May 12th, that is, today.

Microsoft will make updates available for the Operating System, including security updates, for a minimum of 36 months after the lifecycle start date. These updates will be incremental, with each update built on the update that preceded it. Customers need to install each update in order to remain supported. The distribution of these incremental updates may be controlled by the mobile operator or the phone manufacturer from which you purchased your phone, and installation will require that your phone have any prior updates. Update availability will also vary by country, region, and hardware capabilities.
