    Today and many more days ago I found many headlines (not on WP Central) saying that WP8.1 global rollout is set for 24th June (Yup, tomorrow). Even Wikipedia says so. I just wanted to confirm this?
    Is it true?

    I have seen speculation about this, but not sure on its validity. It is expected to be due around this summer period though. Also, I checked Wikipedia and could not see it mentioned there. Do you have a screenshot of it?

    "Windows Phone 8.1, announced at Microsoft's Build Conference in San Francisco, California, on April 2, 2014, is the current generation of Microsoft's Windows Phone mobile operating system, succeeding Windows Phone 8.[3] It was released in final form to Windows Phone developers on April 14, 2014. WP8.1 will roll out to all current Windows Phone 8 users on June 24th, pending carrier approval.[4][5][6][7][8]"
    And here is the place where its mentioned.

    24th of June is the official start of support for WP8.1, that's all. Everything else is speculation, so I agree, let's wait & see.

    Okay
    Yup
    That's one announcement we are expecting.
    But the main concern is the WP8.1 official rollout..
    Now, another site namely NDTV Gadgets has reported the same that it will rollout tomorrow (NDTV Gadgets is an Indian website)

    Other than Wikipedia some sites have specifically mentioned both the lifecycle start and the rollout separately with a full stop between them. :D
    One sentence mentions that the rollout will begin 24th and another mentions that the lifecycle,will begin 24th
    Confusing

    My understanding is that Microsoft officially launch and begin support for 8.1....However (and this is a really big however) a lot of whether its going to be available will be to do with your carrier. I'm on Vodafone in the UK and they can add weeks (sometimes months) to a rollout process. And then there's the question of regional rollouts......does Microsoft release it to the world in one go or region by region over a few days. I guess we'll know tomorrow.

    It would be really stupid for MS to begin official support for WP8.1 when it isn't even launched to the general public. Lets up they launch it tomorrow.

    You seem to forget there are already WP8.1 devices out there, like the 630?

    Nah, I'd rather there be an official support structure in place upon launch.

    Cyan brings WP8.1 to Lumia users not using the preview. Rest of us just get the firmware part.

    I thought firmware and OS are seperated? Like GDR3 and Lumia Black.
