Wasn’t the Windows 10 mobile upgrade supposed to come to existing Lumia phones this month? Yes, it was. So what went wrong? No light has been shed as to why the update has been postponed. Right now, all that has been told is that Lumia users can expect the upgrade to start rolling out somewhere in early 2016.
Microsoft’s spokesperson in a statement given to ZDNet said, “This November we introduced Windows 10 to phones including brand new features such as Continuum and Universal Windows Apps with the introduction of the Lumia 950 and 950 XL. The Windows 10 Mobile upgrade will begin rolling out early next year to select existing Windows 8 and 8.1 phones.” Microsoft has not yet confirmed which devices will get Windows 10 mobile upgrade, but it is being said that all Lumia phones running Lumia Denim and have an internal memory of 8GB will get the update.
As given on PCWorld, listed below are the existing Microsoft Lumia phones that may get the update first:
- Lumia 430,
- Lumia 435,
- Lumia 532,
- Lumia 535,
- Lumia 540,
- Lumia 635,
- Lumia 640,
- Lumia 640 XL,
- Lumia 735,
- Lumia 830, and
- Lumia 930
Microsoft’s first Windows 10 update has faced installation issues on Lumia 950 and Lumia 950 XL. The company had to even pull back the update, make improvements and then republish it.
It is always better to delay something than give out faulty updates or products to customers. This may eventually harm the company’s reputation. And ever since the Windows 10 and Windows 10 mobile phones have been launched, Microsoft has not failed to impress us. So if they are making you wait, it is surely going to be worth it.
