    According to a thread over on Microsoft Answers, an undetermined percentage of Insiders have not received Build 10586.29 despite others receiving the update on their Lumia 950 or Lumia 950 XL.

    Windows 10 Mobile firmware update resumes rollout


    Just before Christmas, Microsoft began rolling out a firmware update to some of its Lumia 950 and 950 XL users, but due to the Christmas holiday, and the nature of rolling the update out over time to monitor any problems that might pop up, we haven’t seen any recent activity, that is until today.

    Numerous reports on Twitter, coming from England at least, have users getting updated to the latest firmware, version 01078.00027.15506.020xx. Just to recap, the update fixes a number of issues, and “seems faster“:
