Windows 10 Mobile upgrade delayed until 2016 for Windows Phone 8.1 users

Microsoft Windows 10 for Phone-2

Microsoft’s big Windows 10 Mobile upgrade, which was expected to arrive this month, has now been delayed to early 2016 for existing Windows Phone 8 and Windows Phone 8.1 users. There is no specific release date for the rollout yet.

“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,” Microsoft said in a statement provided to ZDNet.

“The Windows 10 Mobile upgrade will begin rolling out early next year to select existing Windows 8 and 8.1 phones.”

During its Windows 10 event back in October, Microsoft promised that the upgrade would rollout to existing Windows Phone users — those running Windows Phone 8 and up, at least — sometime this month. But thanks to this delay, the new Lumia handsets are the only ones that will be running Windows 10 before the start of the new year.

Speaking of those new Lumia devices, ZDNet adds that Microsoft is currently in the process of rolling out a new Windows 10 Mobile update for the Lumia 950 and Lumia 950 XL after the last one was pulled due to installation issues.

If you didn’t get a chance to grab that one, then, be on the lookout for a new update imminently.
