This moves up from the previous version 15.1.C.1.17. Users are reporting changes to the launcher, camera, menu bar at the top of the screen and more. Read on to find out more about this update…

Sony’s Xperia M software update page shows an update released on 13th of November. You will need to use PC Companion (PCC) to update which you can find on Sony’s site for Windows here and Mac here.

Xperia M Update 1 Sony has not provided a change log with details of the changes in this update, so if you update your phone, do let us know anything you see, plus your location if you can. Besides bug fixes, perhaps there could be a new feature or two. The media apps tend to get updated in these smaller version changes. The Xperia M update from 15.1.C.1.17 to 15.1.C.2.8 isn’t a major update but hopefully we’ll find some use in it.

Thanks to various users at XDA for reporting these changes:

  • Now there is a grey status bar as normal, changing to black in menus
  • Improved rear camera performance
  • A new transition effect when awaking the screen
  • A Play Games app for multiplayer gaming
  • A volume in-call bug related to audio loss has been fixed
