Verizon's Nokia Lumia Icon is getting the Denim update

As promised by Verizon and Microsoft in December, the Lumia Denim update is now finally on its way to the Lumia Icon smartphone. Last year we heard that the rollout would occur in “early 2015”, and February probably qualifies for that definition.

The Icon follows in the footsteps of Verizon’s Lumia 822 and Lumia 928, both of which have been running the latest software since 2014.

Lumia Denim is the latest release based on Windows Phone 8.1, and it was announced in September of last year. A wider rollout for Denim commenced in January.

The update brings with it the new Lumia Camera app, “Hey Cortana” voice activation, live folders on the Start screen, an “Apps Corner” for specific apps or games, SMS merge and forwarding, customizable snooze times in the Alarm app, consumer VPN support, faster browsing in IE, and a live tile for the Windows Phone store.

If your Lumia Icon hasn’t yet notified you that there’s an update available, you can always manually check by going to Settings > Phone update. To be able to download it, you’ll need to have at least 1GB of free storage space on your device.
