Prepare your Lumia phones! Microsoft’s Windows 10 Mobile update is finally here
Here are all the Lumias that get Windows 10 Mobile
As expected, Microsoft’s list of upgrade eligible devices is pretty short for now. Many of the older Lumia phones with less than 1GB of RAM are not included in the list.
You can download the Windows 10 Upgrade Advisor app from the Windows Store to check if your phone gets Windows 10 Mobile. The list doesn’t include some devices that were able to run Windows 10 Mobile in the Windows 10 Mobile Insider program.
Here is a full list of currently supported devices:
- Lumia 430
- Lumia 435
- Lumia 532
- Lumia 535
- Lumia 540
- Lumia 635 (1 GB RAM)
- Lumia 640
- Lumia 640 XL
- Lumia 735
- Lumia 830
- Lumia 930
Windows 10 Mobile update for older devices running Windows Phone 8.1 has started rolling out, and here are some of the differences you will notice.
Microsoft has stuck to the Tile interface that makes its devices stand out from the competition. However, the Windows 10 Mobile update slightly tweaks the way it looks. With Windows Phone 8.1, users got the ability to add background images to their home screen. These images were placed behind Tiles, and made it look as if the user was viewing images through a window. Windows 10 Mobile now allows users to place full screen images in the background, with translucent tiles over it. If the new interface is not to your liking, you can switch it back to the old background by selecting the option in the Settings menu.
