Windows 10 Mobile Fall Creators Update will roll out this week

Last week Microsoft published the list of devices that will get Windows 10 Mobile Fall Creators update, but didn't reveal a time frame.

Now Brandon LeBlanc, a senor program manager at Microsoft took to Twitter to confirm that Windows 10 Mobile Fall Creators update will start rolling out sometime this week. Infact the update is already rolling out to Windows 10 Mobile devices in Finland, but this week it will expand the roll out to open market devices.

The Windows 10 Mobile devices that will receive Windows 10 Mobile Fall Creators update include:
  • Microsoft Lumia 550/650/950/950 XL
  • Alcate Idol 4S/ Idol 4S Pro/ OneTouch Fierce XL
  • HP Elite x3
  • Wileyfox Pro
  • Softbank 503LV
  • Vaio Phone Biz
  • MouseComputer MADOSMA Q601
  • Trinity NuAns Neo
As you can see the 2015's Lumia 640 and Lumia 640 XL is missing out. This is no surprise given that the last preview builds have caused most of apps to crash on the device.

The Windows 10 Mobile does not bring any new interesting features, but improves the experience of the existing features like Continuum, VPN, Applocker and more. Also it brings Two factor Authentication, new emojis and bug fixes.

The Windows 10 Mobile Fall Creators Update is likely to be the last major software upgrade for the platform. Going forward, Microsoft will continue to service existing devices with bug fixes and security updates.
