    Upgrading existing Windows Phone 8.1 devices to Windows 10 Mobile

    Today, we’re pleased to begin the roll-out of Windows 10 Mobile to select Windows Phone 8.1 devices. There are a lot of great new features in Windows 10 Mobile, like Continuum, Windows Hello and Cortana.

    Consistent with our approach to the Windows 10 PC upgrade, we are focused on delivering a high quality experience for our customers. The Windows 10 Upgrade Advisor app can be downloaded from the Windows Store to see if the upgrade is available for your device.

    You can see the current list of Windows Phone 8.1 devices that are supported for the upgrade to Windows 10 here.

    This list includes a limited set of Windows Phone 8.1 devices and does not include some devices that are currently running Windows 10 Mobile in the Windows 10 Mobile Insider program. As Windows 10 delivers significant new innovations, many older devices are not able to successfully upgrade without an impact on the customer experience. Our goal is to only offer the Windows 10 upgrade to devices that we are confident can continue to deliver a good customer experience.

    I have a Lumia 635 8gb which doesn't appear to be on the list though the 1gb version is. Does this mean that I will never get the upgrade? Or is it a phased roll-out with other models being included later?

    No it won't be getting it, despite the Lumia 635 (512MB) Microsoft Store listing stating "Free upgrade to Windows 10 when available".

    I posted a screenshot in the other thread, so no point in posting it twice. Here's the link:

    Should I get it? Is it ready for primetime?

    This is from the Upgrade Advisor App (on Lumia 1520).

    Microsoft: One More Windows Phone Could Be Supported by Win 10 Mobile


    Microsoft: One More Windows Phone Could Be Supported by Windows 10 Mobile
    Lumia Icon support is under consideration, it says

    The release of Windows 10 Mobile for Windows Phone devices brought a few surprises, including the exclusion of models with 512 MB of RAM from the list of handsets eligible for an upgrade.

    But in addition to 512 MB devices, Microsoft also left behind the Lumia Icon, which is pretty much a flagship for the company, as it features 2 GB of RAM, comes with 32 GB of storage, and features a 20-megapixel main camera.

    According to Gabe Aul, head of the Windows Insider program, Microsoft is still considering the Lumia Icon for the Windows 10 Mobile upgrade, so if you own this model, there’s still hope that you could get the new operating system sometime in the future. How often this could happen is yet to be disclosed and we’re pretty sure that you’re tired of the term “soon,” which has become sort of a trademark for Microsoft lately.
