BlackBerry OS 10.3.2 is rolling out now!

BlackBerry seems rolling out the new OS 10.3.2 already. I got it already on my Classic yesterday and meanwhile too on the Passport. Only the Leap is not prompting the update as of yet.

The new OS brings a few new additions with it like Anti Theft Protection. This feature makes it impossible to reuse a phone without knowing the last used BlackBerry ID.  I found the camera really got snappier as well, so good job BlackBerry. Keep the updated coming.

As always, it is highly recommend you back up your BlackBerry 10 device before any update.  Subject to your carriers approvals, the global roll-out of 10.3.2 will be available for the entire line of BlackBerry 10 devices.

Once available on your carrier’s network, you will receive a notification in the BlackBerry Hub that 10.3.2 is ready for download. If you have enabled automatic software downloads, you will be notified in the BlackBerry Hub that the software is downloading.

And this is what is new:

  • Version 10.3.2
