BlackBerry 10 device users on Canadian carriers Virgin Mobile and Bell are now receiving the latest software update, v10.0.10.85, per reports.
Last week, BlackBerry rolled out the software upgrade and carriers TELUS, Rogers, Fido and Koodo were quick to push out the same to their customers.
Now, according to a MobileSyrup report, the software update, the first from BlackBerry for its new OS, is rolling out for both Bell and Virgin Mobile subscribers.
"Last week BlackBerry pushed out the first update to their new BlackBerry 10 OS - version 10.0.10.85. At the time it was only TELUS, Koodo, Rogers and Fido customers that received the new features. Bell noted in a tweet yesterday that they'll be making it available this week, but we've been tipped by both Bell and Virgin Mobile users that it's now available to download," notes MobileSyrup.
What's more, carrier Bell has confirmed the availability of the update and took to its Twitter account to announce the same.
"Hello friends! The @BlackBerry Z10 update is now available. Here's a step-by-step guide to walk you through it," tweets Bell.
