Today’s the day. This afternoon we proposed requiring Windows Phone 7.5 upon phones to download, buy, update, or examination apps in Marketplace. As I’ve created previously, this shift relates to both the phone as well as web Marketplace storefronts. (If you’re only tuning in, greatfully review my progressing post for the full sum upon since we’re implementing this brand brand new requirement.)
Most phones have been already using Windows Phone 7.5, which was expelled final fall, as well as so many of we won’t notice anything opposite about how the Marketplace works. However, if your phone has an progressing chronicle of the program installed, you’ll shortly begin saying an blunder summary when we try to download the brand brand new app, or refurbish the single we already own. (I contend “soon” since it will take the day or dual for the changes we done currently to take effect.)
If we do get the error, all we need to do is implement the giveaway Windows Phone 7.5 update. You’ll find all the report we need to do that, together with an refurbish checklist as well as easy step-by-step instructions, upon Update Central. (Not certain if we have Windows Phone 7.5 installed? Here’s how to check.)
By the way, even if we don’t make use of Marketplace, there have been still lots of good reasons to update. We done hundreds of improvements, large as well as small, in Windows Phone 7.5. Here’s only the sampling of what we mean. So I’d inspire we to set in reserve time to refurbish your phone for which reason alone.
