Microsoft released Lumia 950 and Lumia 950 XL towards the end of last year, coming in as the first ever smartphones to run on the updated Windows 10 Mobile.
While the company has not been rampant with the release of newer devices running on this OS, there is good news for those using any of the two phones. Starting today, Microsoft says that owners of Lumia 950 and 950 XL will now be able to download and install the latest version of the Windows 10 Mobile build.
The build, which is v10.0.10586.107, has now come out of the preview versions that were initially sent to Windows Insiders, both in fast and slow rings. If you own an open market version of the Lumia 950 or the flagship 950 XL, now is the time to check out for the latest version of your most favored mobile OS. This version is coming out as an initial public test and according to reports; it will only be pushed to all other Lumia 950 and 950 XL models once the company finds no fault with it.
How to check for Windows 10 Mobile updates
Even though Microsoft has announced that the Lumia 950 and its brother 950 XL will be receiving the new Windows 10 Mobile build, not all of these devices will be able to receive this update on the same day. As noted above, the company will start rolling out the updates to other devices in the coming weeks, but only satisfaction that it is working error-free on the initial devices to work on it.
This also means that you might be sitting around not knowing that your 950 or 950 XL is already in line for the new Windows 10 Mobile update. So, to find out if the OS is ready for your device, go to the phone’s Settings>Update & Security>Phone update> Check for updates. Make sure you are connected to the internet and that your device is fully charged or connected to a power source. You can then go ahead and download the update to your phone. In case you don’t find it, don’t worry, it is still coming your way in the next one week or so.
