Less than a month after the launch of BlackBerry 10, owners of the Z10 can now check their device for the first software update. BlackBerry has today released version of the young OS. First and foremost, the company is promising users will see better overall performance from third-party apps. Interestingly, BlackBerry also says it's worked to improve the low-light capabilities of the Z10's 8-megapixel camera. "You’ll love the difference this makes for photos where you don’t use a flash — like the Time Shift Camera feature," reads today's blog post detailing the changes. .

The update also improves compatibility with Gmail calendars and improved video playback within BB10's web browser. Finally, BlackBerry says its team has worked hard to extend battery longevity. Over 60 optimizations have been added since launch, and it says heavy users in particular should notice the longer charge cycles. The software update weighs in at approximately 150MB and can be downloaded through the settings menu on your BlackBerry Z10.
