The CNN version 1.5.1 update sadly doesn’t come with a changelog and from what we can gather there are no huge changes in design or look to the app. Therefore, we can only assume it’s a backdrop bug fix that is intended to make the app load and run a little smoother.

We have noticed that video loads smoother but this may just be wishful thinking! The CNN version 1.5.1 update should start to appear in the Windows Phone updater. If it hasn’t then nip into the Nokia Collection and check whether the update is sat there waiting for you.


It’s a quick 2MB download, so you’ll soon be up and running with the latest news. Have you spotted anything new with CNN version 1.5.1 update? Let us know in the Comments below.
