Microsoft starts rolling out Windows 10 Mobile update for devices running Windows Phone 8.1

The day has arrived when people awaiting the Windows 10 Mobile update start jumping around with joy. Yes fellas, you read that right. Microsoft has finally started rolling out the Windows 10 Mobile update. The update is being rolled out to some selected devices that are running on Windows Phone 8.1.


Consistent with our approach to the Windows 10 PC upgrade, we are focused on delivering a high quality experience for our customers. The Windows 10 Upgrade Advisor app can be downloaded from the Windows Store to see if the upgrade is available for your device.wrote Microsoft in a 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.” Microsoft further added.

There’s a catch though, you will have to download the Upgrade Advisor app first in order to be able to update your device. Following is the list of devices that can be upgraded to Windows 10 Mobile:
