Nokia releases updates for a handful of Windows Phone system apps

Nokia Updates

Nokia has pushed out a number of updates for system apps, which we've received notifications for on our Lumia 920. The system apps that have been bumped to new versions are Nokia account, display+touch and extras+info. We've got the new build numbers, but no changelogs unfortunately. There is however, a noticeable change in the display+touch settings area, with the options being split into two panes. 

Nokia Display+Touch

While we're not currently aware of exactly what's new in the latest releases, these are indeed system apps so we can speculate that minor improvements have been applied to backend services and features. There are some slight hints within the descriptions that point at under-the-hood enhancements, which is always a good sign.

Here's the new builds:

  • Nokia account: 1.1.1245
  • display+touch: 1.5.0.20
  • extras+info: 1.7.0.173 > 1.8.1.140

Be sure to shout at us in the comments should you notice anything we've missed. You can check manually for updates for both display+touch (left-hand QR code) and extras+info (as well as Nokia account) on the Windows Phone Store.

Quin 2013 says:

After I rebooted, my screen is brighter. Idk what else at this time.

e4et says:

Same with me. Boot up seems to be a lot faster

Quin 2013 says:

Yeah, the first reboot was faster, but when back to normal the 2nd time I rebooted.

WPMANatXDA says:

How do you get Store links for system apps?

Daniel_H_UK says:

they get them from their purchase history

WPMANatXDA says:

Ah, I haven't thought it that. lol. Thanks!

Daniel_H_UK says:

Does Anyone have the Direct Link to the Nokia Account update?

santos1974 says:

Would like to have that too

pankaj981 says:

Can you update the link so we can download it from the WPC app? Currently is doesn't let us to copy the link

Edit: thanks!! :)

Daniel_H_UK says:

Thanks Rich :)

santos1974 says:

I received updates for Display+Touch and Extras+Info.
Regarding Nokia account nothing appeared.

ricardios says:

Great to see Nokia tweaking their software, reminds me they are committed

PeterFnet says:

When clicking in the store links, they show as up to date.
*edit: a few now show updates. Just not Nokia account yet

hbjoroy says:

Dreaming that the phone stops rebooting every time I tether, or am in an area with varying or bad coverage...

phirefly says:

You might have a bad phone...  I was in denial for a long time thinking Nokia would release an update to fix my frequent lock ups.  I finally listened to others in the forums and contacted at&t and got a refurb replacement.  It's locked up once in 2 weeks (early on) and never again since.  I definitly had a bad phone and now I have a great phone.

hbjoroy says:

Thanks, well maybe, this is a replacement for another bad phone (NFC issues), my wife has similar issues on her 920, several others at work to a varying degree. I actually have another 920 lying around, I'll test that one (haven't got European 4g).

TwistedVIP says:

What about Bluetooth issues? I literally have my phone rebooting after I try to connect it to.my car's stereo. It works around the second or third time, but almost never the first try.. (yes I do have portico)

Also haven't received Nokia account or extras update yet, but got the display + touch.

jhoff80 says:

Anyone else notice there's now a listing for "SIM Unlock 1.0.0.5" in the Extras & Info version section? Wonder what that's about, I don't know that I saw that before.

I haven't updated yet, but that entry is still there.  So it's nothing new.

Same qustion here..stil doesn't know for what those stand...

Re-starting and boot up time is very fast after update!

naullsy says:

Can only get updates for display and touch and extras and info but my Nokia account says its been updated. Anyone else with same problem???

I really hope this fixes the brightness bug.

jfa1 says:

i used the qr code and when they came it mine shows for the older (current0 version numbers  not the newer ones you listed.  Is that inclusive for ATT 920s or just in UK EU

Sarang68 says:

Any idea where i can find the nokia account version on my 920?

rwalrond says:

After updating my 920, the new display page for "Sunlight readability" and "Battery Saver brightness" are disabled and I cannot change the settings.
 
Anyone else have this problem?

JcMacalindol says:

Same here bro.. :(

Ramonis7 says:

OMG, i'm so worried about updating my phone. All of these updates always come with a bug, as I can see. =/

MrA2Z says:

I have updated 920 and these options are working. Try restart

twixy16 says:

I had errors downloading two of them. Did anyone else have them?

Mr. Brown says:

If your not seeing the option to update, try disabling WiFi temporarily and check again using cell service.

DaviTheGreat says:

After updating the display and touch software I cannot acces the option anymore, anyone?

JcMacalindol says:

Disable "Battery Saver Brightness" and "Sunlight Readability" then no  Lumia Color Profile option for me :(

MrA2Z says:

Lumia Color Profile options is just a screenshot on the store which causes a stir for firmware update

Auto brightness issues introduced with the update that came out with Portico seem to be fixed for me. YAY!

sachintp2112 says:

I am from INDIA. 8 of my friends including myself  own NOKIA Lumia 920. We all had issues with the WindowsPhone store. Store used to be very unresponsive to the touch. Each tap used to take 2 to 4 seconds to respond which was very annoying. How ever my HTC 8x friend had no issues as such with the store.  But today after updating the system apps on our 920s the store is working absolutely fine. I donno if this updates had anything to do with the issue. But we are happy finally its fixed.

sachintp2112 says:

Auto brightness issue also seems to be fixed. How ever there was a volume bug in our 920s. The volume usually becomes unresponsive untill the phone is restarted hoping for a fix soon.

dreamfly says:

Updated and found no changes in the UI.  No Color Profile nor disabling Sunlight or Battery Saver settings.

lubbalots says:

Noticed so far maybe auto brightness might have been fixed!

Infamy79 says:

Hasn't fixed my proximity sensor issue :(

b_wilson says:

That's what I was really hoping for too!

mtreef says:

we dont have that update @ lumia 920 Middle East

souf elj says:

Battery drain too fast after updating on my 820 going from 100 to 10% on less then 5hours on a locked screen and nothing running on the background, anyone else having this problem?
