Here are the phones that will get Windows 10 Fall Creators Update

I woke up yesterday to find that Windows 10 Fall Creators Update for PC was ready and proceeded to download and install it on my laptop. Since Microsoft has said that the update for mobile will happen within the same timeframe, it is a good idea for Windows Phone users out there to get ready for it to pop up on their smartphones anytime from now. But note, supported Windows Phone devices are pretty limited.

Windows 10 Fall Creators Update

Here is the list of Windows-powered smartphones that will get the update, arguably the last major update that will be available for Windows Phone devices:

Windows 10 Fall Creators Update Supported Smartphones

  1. HP Elite x3
  2. Wileyfox Pro
  3. Microsoft Lumia 550
  4. Microsoft Lumia 650
  5. Microsoft Lumia 950
  6. Microsoft Lumia 950 XL
  7. Alcatel IDOL 4S
  8. Alcatel IDOL 4S Pro
  9. Alcatel OneTouch Fierce XL
  10. Softbank 503LV
  11. VAIO Phone Biz
  12. MouseComputer MADOSMA Q601
  13. Trinity NuAns Neo

Lumia 640 and 640 XL owners will be in shock to find out that their devices have been dropped from the list. Sorry, guys.

If your phone is supported though, the update will bring improvements to Edge, Continuum, power consumption and other bug fixes.

But there are also a few features that will no longer be available once you upgrade. Among them is the Apps Corner feature. Kids Corner and FM Radio already disappeared with the Windows 10 Anniversary Update that rolled out in 2016.

Do let us know when the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update shows up on your Windows smartphone.

    Happy that Mr Mo’s ‘treasured’ Lumia 950 is among. Àbí. Hopefully it will further increase its lifespan.😁😁😂

    Why can’t they just release the update for all window phone users, why the limit? It seems they don’t really care about their customers

      It is the same way Android software updates are not available for all Android smartphone users: Different hardware setup do not meet the hardware requirements for the update. Plus, Microsoft is stopping further development of Windows Phone.
