Good news! The latest Windows Phone 8.1 update—Lumia Denim—is now available for the Lumia Icon in the U.S. on Verizon.
Starting today, the Lumia Denim update is rolling out to Lumia Icon devices in the United States over the Verizon network.
If you’re one of the many Lumia Icon owners in the U.S.—and that includes yours truly—it’s reason to rejoice. You’ll skip Lumia Cyan altogether and go directly from Lumia Black to Lumia Denim in the Windows Phone operating system.
You’ll get the latest Windows Phone 8.1 goodies including Lumia Camera, which gives you 4K video recording capability and a super-fast shutter speed, among other camera features; Live Folders; and plenty of other improvements.

Updating your Lumia Icon
Before you download Lumia Denim, you need to free up at least 1GB of storage space on your Lumia Icon.
Next, check whether Lumia Denim is available for your Lumia Icon by going to settings on your phone and scrolling down to phone update. Tap check for updates. While you’re on that screen, it’s also helpful to tap the square that automatically downloads updates to your phone.
Once Lumia Denim is ready for your Lumia Icon, simply tap install and let your Lumia Icon do all the magic.
