New software update for Asha 503: v. 12.1.6

New software update for Asha 503: v. 12.1.6

Hello,

 

we have started rolling out a new software update for Nokia Asha 503 (RM-920 & RM-947): v. 12.1.6. This is a minor update and should be already available to some of the users via Over-The-Air (FOTA).

 

Key changes compared to previous 12.0.23/12.0.26 SW versions include:

  • WhatsApp support added – after updating the software, tap the WhatsApp icon in the main menu to download the latest version of WhatsApp.
  • Thousands of other apps available from Nokia Store, including Line, WeChat & Nimbuzz.

By default your phone is set to automatically check for updates every 8 days and you will be notified when an update is available for download. If you want, it's possible to force the update check immediately by navigating to Settings > Phone update menu and clicking the Check for updates button.

 

To avoid any possible data transfer costs, it's always recommended to use Wi-Fi for the download. Find the further update instructions from here: http://www.nokia.com/global/support/software-update/new-nokia-asha-software-update

Cheers!

Re: New software update for Asha 503: v. 12.1.6

Hi, I have just bought Asha 503 with already updated 12.1.6 version three hours ago.  I am hoping that it can replace my N95 8Gig in using the PC Suite, which is very useful to me. But I am disappointed to discover that PC Suite with 7.1.180.94 version cannot authenticate Asha 503.  Can 503 be used also in PC Suite?  Please help. . .

Asha 503 (like all the more recent phone models) no longer support Nokia Suite. For plugging your phone to a PC, you can use Nokia Connectivity cable driver: http://www.nokia.com/gb-en/support/product/nokia-connectivity-cable-driver/

With the Nokia Software Recovery Tool you can. I used it to update my Nokia Asha 503.
