Microsoft promises Windows 10 Mobile upgrade ‘soon’

Microsoft Lumia 950-21

Microsoft has vowed to rollout its Windows 10 Mobile upgrade ‘soon’ after the release missed its initial December release date. The software is already available on the new Lumia 950 and Lumia 950 XL, but those with a Windows Phone 8 device are still waiting for its arrival.

Although Microsoft originally promised that Windows 10 Mobile would be available to existing Windows Phone users last month, the company recently confirmed in a statement that the upgrade wouldn’t be available until early this year.

Now Microsoft is telling fans on Twitter that Windows 10 Mobile will be rolling out to Windows Phone 8 and Windows Phone 8.1 users “soon.”

“We’re working to make Windows 10 available to eligible Lumia smartphones running Windows Phone 8.1 as an upgrade,” tweeted the official @LumiaHelp account. “No specific release date has been announced yet, but we’re sure that it will be released soon.”

When the Windows 10 Mobile upgrade does become available for existing devices, users will need at least 8GB of internal storage, Microsoft says. It should also be noted that not all features will be available on older handsets, with some requiring “more advanced future hardware.”

If you’re fed up with waiting for Windows 10 Mobile and you’re due an upgrade, you can already get your hands on the software with Microsoft’s new Lumia 950 and Lumia 950 XL.
