Windows 10 Mobile Update To Finally Reach Older Lumia Phones

Currently, the only new phones on the market running Windows 10 Mobile are the Lumia 950 and Lumia 930 XL, with Microsoft believed to be trimming the line up right back.

To check if Windows 10 Mobile is available on your handset yet, you'll need to download Microsoft's dedicated "Upgrade Advisor" app from the Windows Store.

If you're unsure whether your phone qualifies, you can find out by downloading the Windows 10 Upgrade Advisor app from the Windows Store. Microsoft will announce Windows 10 Mobile availability for older-generation Lumia phones at a later date. After opening up the app, click on "Next" and let the app check for updates. Windows 10 Mobile has also been available on phones, such as the Lumia 950 XL and Lumia 950. Once the over-the-air (OTA) update is available it will prompt you to download.

It's great news for owners of older Lumia devices - not everyone wants, or knows, to use the Insider program for early access, and it will increase the size of the total Windows 10 user base.

These figures are provided by AdDuplex, and although they are clearly estimates, they do show that Microsoft's decision not to upgrade everyone to Windows 10 Mobile impacts quite a lot of devices.

Majority of the handsets compatible for the upgrade are mostly from Microsoft and Nokia's Lumia line. Windows 10 Mobile is launching to a rather large range of phones, but they're still on the mid-high ranges of the scale. After a month-long delay, it is ready to roll out the firmware to mobile devices. Ensure the check boxes for Tell Me When Updates Are Available For My Phone and Automatically Download Updates if Data Settings Allow It options are selected.

One of the most awaited announcements from Microsoft has finally been made official.

Microsoft said Thursday it is rolling out the highly anticipated Windows 10 mobile update for select existing handsets. And it's only bound to get better, as Microsoft continue pushing their universally accessible application throughout the year.
