Lumia 950 from Microsoft

Microsoft recently published its first Windows 10 update for Lumia 950 and Lumia 950 XL. But in a short time period, the company suspended the update. What can be the reason? Read on to know more.


This Windows 10 update for Lumia phones, labeled 10586.29, was the first one to have passed the carrier testing. What went wrong? A story published on GSMArena says that there were installation issues with the update, due to which Microsoft decided to remove it from its all-new Lumia smartphones. But yes, this is temporary.

One the forum, Microsoft Answers, Mike Mongeau, moderator of the forum in his post said,

“We are aware of issues related to the recently published Windows 10 Mobile update, including: update not being offered, update appearing to get stuck at 0%, and pesky low storage notifications. The team is working on fixes and improvements to the upgrade experience in the short term and with future releases. In the meantime, we have unpublished the 10586.29 update for Windows 10 Mobile from our public update servers while we work through these reports.”

He also mentioned that Lumia users who are still getting the low storage notification can safely ignore it. And the ones who still have pending updates (Operating System or Apps) are advised to plug their phones into the charger and leave the device on throughout the update.

Microsoft has not made clear when the update will be republished, but we can hope to get it back soon. Luckily, not every Lumia 950 or Lumia 950 XL user have been negatively affected by the update. Some of them have updated their Lumia phones successfully. If you too have not been able to download Microsoft’s first Windows 10 update for Lumia 950 or 950 XL, you have no choice but to wait till the company announces a better version.
