    If fixes are ongoing and they are still testing then what about the Lumia 630 that is already shipped and in stores?

    It will most likely be updated again.

    The version of WP8.1 on it is most likely corresponding to the earliest version of the 8.1 DP.

    Wait, a phone that is available for purchase is running a preview version of an OS? Wouldn't it then have to deal with carriers and whatnot for these updates?

    They are still testing and fixing code? What the hell have they been doing the last 6 months? Certainly not perfecting Xbox Music.

    They'll be testing and fixing code until the end of support, just as they've done with every product for decades. That's how software development works.

    What he is saying is that 8.1 for the released devices(like the 630) is ready. They are testing and fixing any issues they find on other phones and the 8.1 upgrade process in general.

    Looks like people completely misunderstood the thing.
    1. The software on Lumia 630/630 is FINISHED (it has the FINAL version of the 8.1, not sure about Cyan). MS was working on the WP 8 code to change in order to bring the improvements, new features, fixes etc, and the OS became 8.1. So the 8.1 is PRELOADED.
    2. Because the 8.1 CANNOT be preloaded on existing WP devices, they are working on an UPDATE code, which, once downloaded, is changing the system to be the same as the one PRELOADED on Lumia 630/635/930.

    I'm pretty sure that 630/635/930 will NOT get any 'fixed and improvements' for their OS, as the existing WP devices do. Of course, after the 8.1 reaches Final version for ALL devices, there will be more updates.

    According to Dave Dustin - SQLServer DBA/Developer / User Group Leader / Microsoft MVP - "@WithinRafael it means gold is signed off, they're working on day0 patch file... OTA updates start later this month."

    Dave Dustin ‏@venzann 15h
    @WithinRafael 630s in some countries are shipping with 8.1 Gold. rest of world won't get until update is ready. then 630s will get updated.

    He mentioned that the software that 630 has currently is named Gold and will be in use until Cyan is released later this month. So, I suppose we are waiting for lots of new stuff and finally Cyan for all WP devices..

    Sorry its not fixed, just tried it, go to library, hit shuffle, and you will only get a fraction of your songs to play.

    The same process will be applicable as used by Android. As Android used to update the OS from like 4.2 to 4.4 either through data plan or through WiFi. In the similar way, Windows will to identify the bug get it corrected and then will make it available for all Windows phones as a system update.

    About Windows Phone 8.1 being completed. Im interested to know which build is actually the final/RTM/Not-Developer-Preview-Anymore Version of WP8.1. Some co-workers and i are arguing if im using the final version or only a Beta/Dev-Preview.

    You're using the dev preview which is Final code.
