In December of last year, it was reported that Microsoft was delaying the Windows 10 Mobile update for older models of Lumia smartphones. But recent reports seem to indicate that the update is finally being prepped for deployment. As spotted by a Neowin reader, it appears that the software giant has already released an internal beta for the Mobile Upgrade Advisor for Windows 10.
Fans of Microsoft’s Windows 10 mobile operating system have been clamoring for a smartphone that would become the true face of the platform. But truth be told, the current available Windows 10 smartphones out there, most notably Microsoft’s own Lumia 950 and Lumia 950 XL, as good as their specifications are, still leave some things to be desired. And it does not help that Microsoft seem to be reducing its efforts in promoting the flagship devices. For instance, during an event held in October of last year, the company appear to be putting more emphasis on its Surface Pro tablet and Surface Book laptop.
When it comes to releasing smartphones, Microsoft has not had much success. The company may still be considered a giant in the software industry, but establishing a solid presence in the smartphone industry has proven to be a far harder task. It has only been barely over a month since Microsoft launched the Lumia 950 and Lumia 950 XL smartphones, but these devices are just not killing it in terms of sales.
Microsoft has stated that it is currently coordinating with various wireless carriers in order to test the software updates for Window 10 Mobile, the company’s new mobile operating system. Microsoft will then use the feedback generated from the testing to further fine tune the updates, but ultimately, the company has the final say in scheduling the rollout of the software updates, based on input from the wireless carriers as well as those signed up under the Windows Insider program.
During a press conference held in the city of New York, Microsoft officially introduced a couple of new flagship devices, the Lumia 950 and the Lumia 950 XL, which will be made exclusively available from AT&T in the United States. As its name implies, the Lumia 950 XL is a phablet variant of the Lumia 950.
