Microsoft recently promised an upgrade of all Windows 8.1 to Windows 10 OS however, in a turn around news the company has said it will no longer do so and about half of them won’t get the update anytime soon.
Windows Phone owners were already getting frustrated and losing their patience after several delays, and the latest news just adds more fuel to the fire. Yes, Microsoft acknowledged that it will start rolling out the Windows 10 Mobile update at last, but the list of eligible handsets is not very extensive.
Some Windows Phone powered smartphones will get the treat sometime in the future, though Microsoft is yet to provide a definitive time frame for the updates. Roughly 50 percent of active devices running Windows Phone, however, will not receive the update to Windows 10 Mobile “anytime soon.” The news comes from Alan Mendelevich, founder and CEO of AdDuplex.
Here’s the list of supported Lumia phones : Lumia 1520, Lumia 930, Lumia 830, Lumia 735, Lumia 730, Lumia 640, Lumia 640XL, Lumia 638 1GB, Lumia 636 1GB, Lumia 635 1GB, Lumia 540, Lumia 535, Lumia 532, Lumia 435, and Lumia 430.
So if your Lumia phone is not in the above list it means you’re not getting the windows 10 update any soon.
