BlackBerry has released a system update for the BlackBerry Z10, improving performance in several areas for users who picked up the smartphone in the past month. 

Specifically, BlackBerry says the update brings better third-party app performance, improving them immensely for a smoother experience. The camera has also been optimised for better low-light photos, among other BlackBerry-default apps.

Battery life has been improved "with over 60 battery saving improvements since launch to keep you moving", according to the folks in Waterloo. Additionally, the company says BlackBerry Z10 users should see a longer average usage per charge cycle. It's worth noting that in our review of the Z10 we found poor battery life.

The update sounds like a must on account of the number of enhancements that are included. BlackBerry Z10 users can install the update by going to Settings > Software Updates > Check for Updates > and complete the process by following the on-screen directions.
