Verizon's Nokia Lumia Icon is now receiving the Lumia Denim software update, finally
If Verizon's Nokia Lumia Icon is among the items that cane be found in your pockets on a daily basis, then today might be your lucky day (hopefully)! The Verizon-exclusive version of the Lumia 930 is about to receive the Lumia Denim update for Windows Phone 8.1 anytime now. 

Interestingly enough, it seems that this will be the first software update Icon users have seen in quite a long time - Verizon has not updated the Lumia device with the Cyan update, despite having it listed as being "under development" for a plethora of months. From the looks of it, Big Red has decided to skip the Lumia Cyan update altogether and directly update the current Windows Phone flagship directly to the Lumia Denim software update.

As Windows Phone fans probably know already, the Denim update brings about a handful of camera-centric improvements, like an improved Lumia Camera app, 4K video-recording support, a fast shutter feature, and others.

In order to update your device, you need to manually head to Apps List, then open Settings, followed by Phone Update, and finally tap on the Check for updates option. Hopefully, the update will commence shortly after. If not, wait for a little and give it another try!

No Microsoft is releasing updates but your carrier decides if your phones gets the update or not! So in this case blame Verizon! That's why I always buy sim unlocked phones!

Unfortunately true. I've been with Verizon for over a decade and never thought I'd leave, but I'm getting closer. Will have to actually weigh my options when my contract is up this summer. AT&T has shown fantastic support for Windows Phone from the get-go.

Except the 928, 822 and now the Icon have Denim and I'm still waiting for my AT&T 1520. I'd say Verizon has trumped all US carriers with the Denim update. Go figure.

got it on my Icon. i'm happy about getting a proper notification shade with customizable quick toggles and a settings shortcut but i'm pretty underwhelmed by Cortana. the first thing i ask her to do is set a 10 minute timer and she can't even do that... and i still can't get it to connect to WPA2 Enterprise wireless networks... i'm glad the Icon isn't my daily driver. SIM went into my iPhone 6 after experiencing that for a day.
