Windows 10 mobile rollout delayed for Windows 8 and 8.1 devices till 2016

It looks like Windows phone users will have to wait even longer until they get their hands on the latest Windows 10 OS. Microsoft has said that the Windows 10 Mobile upgrade will  begin early next year to select devices running Windows Phone 8 and 8.1.


Microsoft had previously promised to deliver its Windows 10 Mobile update to existing Lumia devices this month, but the company is delaying its roll out. Windows 10 Mobile has been available to Windows Insider program users since February. It is still unclear which handsets will get the upgrade to Windows 10 Mobile.

“This November we introduced Windows 10 to phones including brand new features such as Continuum and Universal Windows Apps with the introduction of the Lumia 950 and 950 XL. The Windows 10 Mobile upgrade will begin rolling out early next year to select existing Windows 8 and 8.1 phones.”

said a Microsoft spokesperson told Zdnet.

Windows 10 is already present on recently launched Lumia 950, Lumia 950 XL and Lumia 550.
