    Hi,
    I have been using Lumia 520 for quiet sometime. Its running on Windows 8. However I want to update the OS to windows 8.1. But I'm not able to do that. I my mobile settings i have tried for software updates but it shows as software is up to date. But when i check in the About it displays that software version is Windows Phone 8.0.
    Is there any link to download the new OS or am I missing something really obvious. I searched in the internet am sure that Lumia 520 is compatible with Windows 8.1.
    And also is there any lagging issues with the new Window 8.1 OS.

    Any help would be really appreciated.

    Thanks

    Go to appstudio.windowsphone.com and register. Use the Windows account (Live.com, Outlook.com, Hotmail.com) associated with your phone. It's free.

    2. Download the Preview for Developers app on your phone.

    3. In the app, use the same Microsoft account to login.

    4. Now again go to appstudio.windowsphone.com. You'll be asked whether you want to let this service access your email addresses in your profile. Click 'Yes. You can these permissions at any time.

    5. Go to Settings - Phone update. Click on 'check for updates'. The automated process will back up your data before the big update. The 8.1 update is around 500 MB in size. So download it over Wi-Fi.
