SO WORTH THE WAIT.
If you are a person fortunate enough to have a developer unlocked WP8 device you can get the update NOW.
And let me say that this is probably the best thing since sliced bread. SERIOUSLY.
If you’re not a Windows Phone user now is a great time to try one if you have a friend described at the top of this post. 😊
Oh, one more thing: If you’re updating a Lumia 1520 you’ll want to make sure that you plug in using your charging block. Until I did all I got was that “low power!” warning icon. It may also work if you plug into your computer, but I wasn’t in a position to try that.
