Windows 10 Mobile update launch confirmed: Which Microsoft Lumia handsets will get Windows 10 Mobile?

Washington: Windows 10 Mobile update is set to come onto your handset without any further delay. The software giant Microsoft on Tuesday opened a Windows 10 Update History web site and this is going to keep a track on every development in this regard.

For the last three months the Windows 10 Mobile fans are desperately awaiting the arrival of the new OS for their smartphones. The Microsoft’s Lumia handsets, especially the older ones were expected to get the update in December itself. But they had no information at all in this regard till now.

Now things seem to have brighten as Microsoft starts rolling out the update. “After listening to feedback regarding the level of disclosure for Windows 10 updates, we decided to implement a new system for communicating updates to the operating system,” a Microsoft representative said.windows-10 menu

The statement went on to add, “Today we are rolling out the Windows 10 update history site, a hub for the release notes that will accompany each update and serve as a historical record of prior release notes.” In October, the Redmond-based firm had promised to become more transparent about the updates it provides for Windows 10. It is notable that Windows 10 Update History is similar to the way that Microsoft documents its Surface firmware updates.

As an example, here’s what’s provided for KB3135173, which Windows Update would have in the past did not describe properly as “Updates for Windows 10 1511”. Yes, this is new (and hasn’t even shipped yet): February 9, 2016 – KB3135173 (brings system to 10586.104)

This update includes quality improvements and security fixes. No new operating system features are being introduced this month. Key changes in this update include:

Fixed issues with authentication, update installation, and operating system installation. Fixed issue with Microsoft Edge browser caching visited URLs while using InPrivate browsing. Fixed issue that didn?t allow simultaneous install of apps from the Windows Store and updates from Windows Update.

In the meantime fixed security issues in Microsoft Edge and Internet Explorer 11 that could allow code from a malicious website to be installed and run on a device. Fixed additional issues with the Windows UX, Windows 10 Mobile, Internet Explorer 11, Microsoft Edge, and taskbar. Fixed additional security issues with .NET Framework, Windows Journal, Active Directory Federation Services, NPS Radius Server, kernel-mode drivers, and WebDAV.

T-Mobile Germany said that the updates will be available for the following handsets
