BlackBerry officially released BlackBerry OS 10.3 with the debut of the Passport. BlackBerry eventually intends to officially release OS 10.3.1 as an update to previous BlackBerry 10 smartphones.

The upcoming BlackBerry Classic release will usher in the 10.3.1 update. What new features will be coming in this much anticipated update? We briefly discussed some of the new features of 10.3.1 in our recent N4BB Live webcast.

Now, we’ve exclusively received the following 10.3.1 features list:

  • Notifications Profiles (similar to BeBuzz and Hub++ apps)
  • Internal & External Out of Office replies
  • Ability to specify which contacts folders within Exchange to sync
  • More robust Calendar reminder dialogs
  • Task Recurrence
  • Workspace Camera
  • Ability to mark a Picture or Video as “hidden”
  • Map View of Pictures (requires Geo-tagging of photos)
  • Customizable Hotkeys from Home Screen (requires physical keypad)
  • Battery Saving Mode
  • Ability to grant/deny permission for applications to continue running while minimized
  • And more!

Developers can go ahead and get the 10.3.1 beta SDK and begin preparing their apps for the update. Nevertheless, stay tuned for OS 10.3.1 to officially release sometime near November, once the Classic device is announced.

What I want is turn ON/OFF Blutooth, Wifi, NFC etc., on the fly. No more entering into the actual menu. Just a click on or off. That would be great.

This can be done easily with the quick settings menu, just swipe down from top and toggle off these features

If you click on the icon in the quick settings menu instead of the text it will just toggle on/off and wont redirect you to the settings.. For instance if you click on the wi-fi symbol (it acts like a separate icon) it will toggle on and off. now if you click on the text, where it says Wi-Fi it will redirect you to the settings.. This has been there forever..
