Microsoft has been ameliorating the new mobile OS since ages and is still pushing updates on both fast ring and slow ring. Even though there has been an increase of 1 % compared to June, but still it’s just 11.9 % which us not sufficient. Windows Phone 8.1 share also increased very slightly, from 78.8% last month up to 79.1%.
