Microsoft confirms only a few Windows Phones will get Windows 10 Creators Update
Microsoft confirmed that only a few Windows Phone handsets will be getting the Windows 10 Creators Update when it begins rolling out on April 25.
Microsoft’s list of supported phones which the company posted today are:
- Alcatel IDOL 4S
- Alcatel OneTouch Fierce XL
- HP Elite x3
- Lenovo Softbank 503LV
- MCJ Madosma Q601
- Microsoft Lumia 550
- Microsoft Lumia 640/640XL
- Microsoft Lumia 650
- Microsoft Lumia 950/950 XL
- Trinity NuAns Neo
- VAIO VPB051
“Devices not on this list will not officially receive the Windows 10 Creators Update nor will they receive any future builds from our Development Branch that we release as part of the Windows Insider Program. 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 Windows Insider chief Dona Sarkar in today’s blog post.
Microsoft attributed the short list of support phones to Insider feedback that indicated older phones might not be providing “the best possible experience” for customers.
Microsoft also released a Fast Ring test build of Windows 10 Mobile for phones to Fast Ring Insiders today. That build number is 15204 and it includes a number of bug fixes. This is the first Redstone 3 build for Windows Phones. It’s only available to Insider phone users of handsets that are on the list above.
