One of the most popular names in the world of technology, Microsoft has been around the markets of technology for the past 40 years, and has been coming out with a large number of updates and upgrades in the way we know the markets of technology to be. The company has been changing many trends in the markets and has been innovating their offerings. In their latest update, Microsoft has now released the Windows 10 Mobile OS update for a large number of their devices, including the older Nokia Lumia devices.
This Windows 10 Mobile OS update was promised to arrive for the users of the Nokia Lumia devices back in December 2015, however December came and went, 2016 came, and the update was then delayed thrice before it finally came out in the march of 2016.
The Windows 10 Mobile OS update was earlier available for the users of the Lumia 950, Lumia 950 XL, Lumia 550 and Lumia 650 devices. The update has now begun rolling out for the users of the older phones as well.
The Windows 10 Mobile OS update came out for the users of many older Nokia Lumia phones such as Lumia 1520, 930, 640, 640XL, 730, 735, 830, 532, 535, 540, 635 1GB, 636 1GB, 638 1GB, 430, 435, BLU Win HD w510u, BLU Win HD LTE x150q, and the MCJ Madosma Q501 devices.
These selective release of the Windows 10 Mobile update for the Nokia Lumia users has stirred a major controversy as a large number of users of the older devices are upset that their devices, despite being quite popular are not in the list. The Lumia 520, Lumia 1020 and Lumia 1320 have been three devices which have especially been making their absence felt.
The company clarified things in the official blog post –
“This list includes a limited set of Windows Phone 8.1 devices and does not include some devices that are currently running Windows 10 Mobile in the Windows 10 Mobile Insider program. As Windows 10 delivers significant new innovations, many older devices are not able to successfully upgrade without an impact on the customer experience. Our goal is to only offer the Windows 10 upgrade to devices that we are confident can continue to deliver a good customer experience,” the company said.
