Microsoft delays Windows 10 Mobile upgrade until “early next year”

According to a VentureBeat report, software giant Microsoft has delayed the Windows 10 Mobile upgrade until “early next year.”

The report, based on the information shared by Microsoft spokesperson, implies that the company will not be able to deliver the Windows 10 Mobile upgrade to the current Windows Phones devices this month, as previously promised.

Microsoft had said in October that it will make its newest Windows 10 OS available more broadly on different devices, including Windows Phone-powered smartphones, in December. However, that target has now been missed by the company, and the new timeline for broader Windows 10 availability – including Windows 10 Mobile – is early 2016.

Revealing that no existing Windows Phone smartphones will be upgraded to Windows 10 mobile in December, the Microsoft spokesperson told VentureBeat that “the Windows 10 Mobile upgrade will begin rolling out early next year to select existing Windows 8 and 8.1 phones.”

With Microsoft not specifying the month in which it plans to roll out the Windows 10 Mobile upgrade to Windows Phone handsets, the “early next year” timeline roughly translates to the first quarter – January, February, and March – of 2016. Till then, the only two Windows 10 Mobile handset options available to Windows fans are Lumia 950 and Lumia 950 XL handsets.
