Microsoft confirms list of phones that will officially get Windows 10 Creators Update


Microsoft released Windows 10 Creators Update for Windows 10 devices last week, it also released Windows 10 Mobile Insider Preview Build 15204 to insiders soon after and also said that it will release new developer builts for Windows 10 Mobile along with PC builds, but the build numbers and branch will be different.

“This is a result of more work we’re doing to converge code into OneCore – the heart of Windows across PC, tablet, phone, IoT, HoloLens, Xbox and more as we continue to develop new improvements for Windows 10 Mobile and our enterprise customers,” said the company.

It also confirmed the list of Windows 10 Mobile devices that will officially get the Windows 10 Creators Update starting April 25th that includes:

  • HP Elite x3
  • Microsoft Lumia 550
  • Microsoft Lumia 640/640XL
  • Microsoft Lumia 650
  • Microsoft Lumia 950/950 XL
  • Alcatel IDOL 4S
  • Alcatel OneTouch Fierce XL
  • SoftBank 503LV
  • VAIO Phone Biz
  • MouseComputer MADOSMA Q601
  • Trinity NuAns NEO

It also confirmed that devices not on this list will not officially receive the Windows 10 Creators Update nor will they receive any future builds, including developer builds. “However, Windows Insiders who have devices not on this list can still keep these devices on the Windows 10 Creators Update at their own risk knowing that it’s unsupported,” said Microsoft.

Microsoft said that it could not provide the best possible experience for many older devices so it decided not to provide Windows 10 Creators Update for those devices.
