Windows Phone 8.1 Update 2 out for some devices

With the release of Windows 10 Technical Preview, something interesting happened people were getting the update and moving on to not a Windows 10 preview but a Windows Phone 8.1 Update 2. Even the Lumia 930 users which were excluded from the Windows 10 Preview are also getting the update.

Above images shows the Windows Phone 8.1 Update 2 in Lumia 730 but apparently its not available as usual update but comes with a trick to get it.

How does it work?

To get Windows Phone 8.1 Update 2,

  • you need to download the Windows Insider app
  • sign up as the fast ring users
  • the phone will check for an update, it should show you the update.
  • this is not Windows 10, but the build 15116 i.e Update 2

It does bring some new features like organised settings and bring able to pin settings on the start screen. Do note its not a official update but a trick you can use to get the update.
