Windows Phone 8 'Apollo Plus' Update Detailed

The next Windows Phone 8 update is purportedly codenamed Apollo Plus and will deliver a host of new notable features.

Among the features is Virtual Private Network (VPN) support, which would allow users to connect to private work or school networks through the internet.

Upon Windows Phone 8 users updating to Apollo Plus, they need not be required to plug their device into a PC system. Apparently, over the air updates will be included in the rumored version.

Other features for Apollo Plus includes the deliverance of a Wi-Fi connection fix to allow connections to always remain on, according to unnamed sources cited by The Verge. Finally, audio tweaks are also reportedly part of the patch.

Should Apollo Plus, which is intended to deliver components missing from the Windows Phone 8 debut last month as opposed to being a next major version of the platform, prove to be true, it's expected to be revealed during the Mobile World Congress in February, 2013.
