Windows 10 Mobile updates to be pushed out from Microsoft directly

Windows 10 Mobile updates to be pushed out from Microsoft directly

One of the great differences between Apple on the one hand, and Google and Microsoft on the other, is that Apple controls all aspects of its hardware and software. This means it pushes out OS updates quickly and without having to wait for approval from carriers and manufacturers. Android updates are notoriously slow, as both phone manufacturers and networks have to customise them to work on specific handsets. This is the reason why a Nexus device is the fastest to feature OS updates and arguably one of the principal reasons for its popularity. Microsoft hasn’t fared any better with Windows Phone 8, and even the firmware updates for Lumia handsets have been dependent on carrier testing and approval, which usually has taken months. A new story now suggests that with Windows 10 Mobile Microsoft will control all updates and will push them out automatically. In practice this means that users will get them far quicker. It’s an important step for software upgrades, but also for various fixes and patches that inevitably accompany new OS releases. Of course this should include the Windows 10 upgrade in the first place. As a reminder, this is a list of the handsets that will be in the first tranche of devices officially upgraded in December:


  • Lumia 430
  • Lumia 435
  • Lumia 532
  • Lumia 535
  • Lumia 540
  • Lumia 640
  • Lumia 640 XL
  • Lumia 735
  • Lumia 830
  • Lumia 930
