Microsoft mulling Windows 8.1 update with 'folder support'
Tech giant Microsoft is planning to release its first update to Windows Phone 8.1 with support for folders and interactive cases.
The update adds a feature which will allow users to create folders to group apps of their choice, which is already available on iOS and Android. The folders would be created when one tile is dragged on to other, The Verge reported.
One of the more interesting features with Update 1 is support for interactive case accessories. HTC, Samsung, and LG all use cases that wake phones up when they're opened, or even display information on a phone display when a case is in use, report said.
Microsoft is planning to allow phone makers to do the same for their Windows Phones, which should significantly improve case support.
HTC is currently testing a version of its One Android handset designed for Windows Phone, so this case support could pave the way for HTC's Dot View case with its upcoming Windows Phone, the report added.
