Microsoft Windows 10 Mobile update: When will it arrive, why the delay?

Microsoft fans are feeling let down due to the delay in the arrival of Windows 10 Mobile on their Windows mobile handsets. The Redmond giant had initially said it would release the latest OS for older devices beginning December 2015. Now January is galloping ahead towards the end and the company is yet to release the new OS for existing Lumia handsets.

Different telecom operators in Europe and Australia had also announced their preparedness to release the Windows 10 Mobile on some devices –they had also announced the names of handsets too –nonetheless now they are not saying much about it. It seems despite the fact that carriers have finished testing the operating system, the Redmond based tech giant hasn’t completed the development as yet.

There are reports that Microsoft has already told telecom operators about the delay, revealing a little bit more about the reasons behind this decision. In a report VentureBeat says Microsoft has actually sent an email to its partners explaining the reason for holding back the release of Windows 10 Mobile for another month.

The report goes on to add, “The one positive aspect of this development, which follows a previous missed upgrade rollout target of December, is that current Lumia owners will receive the very latest build of Windows 10 Mobile out of the gate — complete with the February service update being simultaneously pushed to the Lumia 950 and Lumia 950 XL…This has not been an easy period for Windows fans, with Lumia owners anxiously awaiting an upgrade that could have realistically not come until March, and new Surface Pro 4 and Surface Book owners experiencing their own frustration with issues that Microsoft has not yet publicly addressed”.
