Yu has announced that Yuphoria owners will finally be treated to Cyanogen OS 12.1 today. This should bring folks up to the latest and greatest version of Cyanogen’s wares based on Android 5.1.1 Lollipop. Exact rollout details weren’t given, but their loose window of “tonight” is nice enough to get excited over.
Cyanogen OS 12.1 brought a lot of key changes, and the list is long. Let’s not waste time with what’s new:
- Smarter Screen: LiveDisplay intelligently adjusts your screen based on environmental conditions.
- Calendar Together with Email: Enjoy the latest Boxer powered experience where you can seamlessly share your availability and schedule appointments.
- Cyanogen Browser: The new Cyanogen browser delivers search results and loads web sites faster and more securely than leading browsers.
- Redesigned Launcher: App Drawer and Folders have been redesigned for one-handed use.
- Fresh AudioFX: The user interface has been updated for consistency across all devices.
- More Playback support: We’ve substantially increased our support of codecs for video and audio playback.
