    This is not consider as a unofficial update it is the beta version of the official update as a beta it is little buggy.
    So in final version the most of the bugs will be rectify and moreover it will come with the firmware update which will optimize the update for your device too.

    Welcome to WPCentral Zohaib
    With dev preview ,one can get early acess of the OS update , this isn't not a beta or unofficial release , it's a early final , RTM release which does have some minor bugs but they are all manageable and one can enjoy the phone with ease. Yes if you applied for dev preview you will get the final OS which will include bug fixes and performance improvements along with Nokia firmware update (cyan update ) which will further refine the OS by new drivers , tweaks and optimisation for lumia devices.

    The first update preps your phone and your phone will turn back on looking as if nothing happened....DO NOT TOUCH it.

    The second update is 8.1. It will take some time. You will see the gears spinning, that is how you know something is going on in the background, and a progress bar. After it downloads the update, it will ask if you want to install.

    The actual update is comprised of 19 long steps that the phone does all on it's own. You must be patient.

    One last note. Please do a factory reset as soon as the update is complete after you remigrate your old apps, settings, etc. In other words, just before you begin to really play with it, do the reset. Else, things may not settle in the right place. I reset mine and files were moved in a way that I could no longer choose background task settings because some are automatic and handled better. I would not have known this had I not done a reset. Others also suggest the same.

    WinPhone 8.1 Dev Preview updates the OS. Missing is the firmware from the manufacturer which helps the OS run more efficiently. This is WHY you read of battery drain, etc. - the firmware is not there.

    When it's released (for your device or from your carrier) you will go to SETTINGS >> PHONE UPDATE to start the process. Phone Update (automatically) will:
    - take a backup of EVERYTHING (for restore in FINAL steps)
    - re-flash your OS with the corrected (bug fixes) version of WinPhone 8.1. Also coming along will be the firmware (Lumia Cyan from Nokia) to tie everything together as well as carrier software (if phone is carrier locked).
    - restore your backup - fixing Start Screen, favorites, Apps, texts - everything as it was B4 the update WITH the FULL update.

    I can speak to this (it was seamless) because I took the last Dev Preview, then waited for Lumia Black to tie everything together. I reiterate, it's totally seamless, just make sure you're plugged in to a charger (or have a full charge), connected to WiFi.

    ... and for safety's sake, take your own backup before starting, in case anything inadvertently fails. (WiFi drops, server loses connectivity, etc.)

    If there's an issue, you can flash the phone (NSU) back to WinPhone 8.0.
    If the phone bricks - read the previous sentence.
    ... but, if you're that skittish, wait till July / August for the official release. Me, I'm enjoying WinPhone 8.1 (and took the update TODAY).

    Have a question before buying 1520. Had a L920 and it was more than good. I gave it to my wife and buy myself a nexus5 which I am not happy with. I looking forward to come back on WP and eyeing on the 1520. Do you guys consider swipe/tap bug as a deal breaker and is there a chance to sneak out without it.

    I almost never see it. So to me not a deal breaker. The odd time it happens is more than offset by just how awesome the device is to use.
