Cyan Developer Preview Update for Windows Phone 8.1 Enables SensorCore

­I was happy to receive the latest Windows Phone 8.1 update on my 1520. This update brings it up to

OS version: 8.10.14157.200

The SensorCore SDK gives you access to a step counter, activity information, and capabilities to record your location data in a very low power mode.

I’ve know for some time that the SensorCore hardware was present in my 1520 but that it was not enabled. I had to make due with a preview version of a Nokia 635 to play with the SensorCore API. With the latest cyan update, I’ve finally got access to the SensorCore hardware on my 1520.

The SensorCore SDK can be downloaded here:

    Sorry to say but that is incorrect…Cyan is not “OS version: 8.10.14157.200”, that is the OS version and is nowhere related to Cyan which is the firmware.

    • Hi Stefan, sorry for the confusion. My 1520 actually received a number of updates in rapid succession. One of those updates enabled the Cyan upgrade, and the last update ended up being the version indicated. Next time I’ll make sure and document each update and version number.
