BlackBerry OS 10.2 introduces many new features that will help you be more productive and stay better connected. Its new refinements will make the things you do every day faster and easier. Following is the list of some of the features of BB OS 10.2:

The Priority Hub
The best thing about 10.2 is that you can now keep your important conversations closer than ever with the new BlackBerry Priority Hub. This will now always be at your fingertips. The new Priority Hub learns what conversations are most important to you and automatically puts those messages at the top of your inbox, helping you to stay focused on the most important items. The new attachment view helps you find files and documents across your messaging accounts and within specific message threads.

Lock Screen Notifications
You can now take a peek at the latest email, text, BBM, or notification right from the lock screen to see if that's the message you've been waiting for or one that can wait a while. You can customize which accounts appear on the lock screen and scroll over the icons to display the sender and subject line.

Instant Previews of BBM, SMS and Email from any application
Your BBM, SMS and E-mail messages will now be accessible from any application. You can your new arrivals no matter what you are doing on your BlackBerry 10 smartphone. Email, BBM and SMS message previews now appear in any app. You can even respond to your BBM or SMS messages in any app, or go to the BlackBerry Hub with a single swipe to respond to your email. Perfect for keeping the conversation going while you browse the web, watch a video, or use other apps. Moreover, you can customize which notifications you want and which you don't.

BBM Video with Natural Sound
With BlackBerry Natural Sound, BBM Video and Voice conversations between BlackBerry 10 smartphones sound more natural and realistic. It's the next best thing to being in the same room. BlackBerry Natural Sound captures a wider sound spectrum, so you can hear subtle nuances that are lost in most cellular calls.

BlackBerry Keyboard
The new improved BlackBerry keyboard knows your next moves and just got even smarter. With personalized next word suggestion, auto-correction, and the distinctive BlackBerry keyboard layout, we've built this keyboard to help you have conversations with speed and accuracy. And on the BlackBerry Z10 and BlackBerry Z30, improved audio feedback with distinct tones for specific keys like backspace and shift help you type more confidently because you'll have more reassurance you've hit the right key.

Copy and Paste Enhancements
Copy and paste just got easier and better. BlackBerry 10.2 gives you more precise cursor control and text selection is now easier. Once you select text, a pop-up menu gives you editing options and direct sharing with BBM, Facebook and Twitter, so you can quickly copy, paste and share.

Faster, Easier Sharing
BlackBerry 10.2 adapts to everything you do, from the smart keyboard suggestions to this, it learns how you share and who you share with, helping you reduce the number of steps and amount of time it takes to get your files, photos, or documents to where they need to go. Touching "share" in any app provides suggestions on who and how to share your files based on who you've shared with in the past, and the feature only gets smarter the more you use it.

Reply Now
With Reply Now, you can respond to incoming phone calls, even when it's not a good time to answer the phone. Easily send a response through BBM, SMS or email - choose from a list of standard automated responses or respond with a personalized note.
