Microsoft is reportedly working on an update for Windows Phone 8.

According to The Verge, the update, codenamed Apollo Plus, will bring new features to the mobile operating system that were not present in its initial release.

Specifically, the update is expected to bring VPN support, allowing corporate users to connect to work systems. A Wi-Fi fix will allow Windows Phone 8 users to leave Wi-Fi always on, and audio enhancements will improve the sound quality produced by Windows Phone 8 devices.

Details on the update are expected to be revealed in February at Mobile World Congress.

Microsoft revealed Windows Phone 8 in June of this year. A follow-up to Windows Phone 7, the mobile operating system got an updated look with three tile size options rather than one and support for higher resolution screens, multiple processors and NFC.

The first Windows 8 devices were released earlier this month.
