BlackBerry OS 10.3 officially launched with the release of the BlackBerry Passport. However, previous BlackBerry 10 devices will not be receiving that update.

Instead, previous BlackBerry 10 smartphones will be refreshed with an OS 10.3.1 update. The OS 10.3.1 update brings a more refined BlackBerry 10 experience and incorporates features from legacy BlackBerry OS.

As revealed in the 2014 global roadmap, the update would occur around the release of the upcoming BlackBerry Classic, which was expected to release in November of this year. The Classic release will usher in the launch of OS 10.3.1.

However, BlackBerry’s CEO, John Chen, let it slip that the Classic wouldn’t release until December 2014. We’ve exclusively been told this has affected the release of OS 10.3.1 to older devices.

Technical acceptance of OS 10.3.1 will begin by mid-December 2014, with an expected official availability for previous devices Z3, Z10, Z30, Q10, and Q5 by Q1 2015.

Damn! Been holding off updating my z10 with any leaks. Patience is a virtue right?

To bad they are behind schedule (if only because it is a bit too much like BB of old where they never meet their own deadlines). They are getting better but by default, they should take all their internal deadlines, add 3 months and communicate those dates instead as it doesn’t help their reputation when they are late.

That being said, I’m pretty happy with the latest 10.3.1 leak so I don’t feel like I’m missing out much.

There was no official announcement when 10.3.1 would be released, so they are not behind schedule. Sure they are behind a projected road map date that was leaked, but that could have been changed before we even saw it.

Oscar The problem here isn’t really with the poster it’s about how BlackBerry communicates with the the customer. 1. Why do they allow leaks? That’s an internal problem. 2. Communicate a date a ND stick to it. Don’t just talk about how great the next version will be. 3. Insist that the carriers deploy within a fixed time period after its released. It’s a BlackBerry Marketing problem. 10.3.1 is a nice upgrade but why can’t the communicate. With ATT I have no illusions that it will be available on the release date. More likely 3 5 months after just like… Read more »

I dont think the delay is for OS. Classic should have its own problem that would lead to a delay while OS seem to be stable, at least at the ton of leaked version were out. I still believe an 10.3.1 OS can be officially released before Classic.
