Microsoft, a day after revealing that the touchscreen bug fix update for the Lumia 535 will roll out starting December 27, has surprisingly started rolling out the update in select countries already.
"Hey, we have started rolling out a new software update for Lumia 535 (RM-1089) in selected countries," stated armagon, a Microsoft employee on the Nokia Discussion forum on Monday. The change log as mentioned in the post includes touchscreen performance improvements, availability of Cortana in more markets, easy switching on/off of data connection from the Action Center, scheduling time for installing updates, and other stability and performance improvements.
It has been understood that the touchscreen bug fix comes as a part of the Lumia Denim update, which started rolling out in India, China and Europe last week.
To receive the update, Microsoft Lumia 535 smartphone users should be running the Windows Phone version 8.10.14219.341 and build 02054.00000.14485.370xx. Users can check if the update is available in their country or not from Microsoft's dedicated website.
To recall, the touchscreen issue highlighted convincingly in the video by Winphone Viet showed the Microsoft Lumia 535 struggling with a touchscreen sensitivity issue and inconsistent tracking of touch input. It was recommended that until the Redmond-based tech firm rolls out an update, users can switch off the Screen Magnifier feature, which can be found under Settings > Ease of Access option, to avoid the issue to some extent.
The Redmond-based tech firm had last week sent an email stating it will roll out the update to Lumia 535 Dual-SIM handsets in Vietnam starting December 27. The update was said to arrive over-the-air (OTA).
