The latest version of Microsoft’s operating system is focused on changing the narrative of Windows as an OS to work with. Its focus is creativity. That version, Windows 10 Creators update, is rolling out to PCs already. While it is largely aimed at PC users, but there are a number of features which will be available to mobile users. As such, Windows 10 Mobile Creators Update will be rolling out soon. If you have been wondering whether your windows smartphone will get it, Microsoft has published a list of devices that will be officially supported. Here you go:

Not a lot of devices. We don’t think that too many people will be disappointed either. There are not a whole lot of Windows phone users out there any more. Microsoft says though that even if your device isn’t listed above, you can still get the update if you are an Insider. The catch is that you are on your own with that; do not expect any support for resolving any issues that crop up. The official statement reads:

Devices not on this list will not officially receive the Windows 10 Creators Update nor will they receive any future builds from our Development Branch that we release as part of the Windows Insider Program. However, Windows Insiders who have devices not on this list can still keep these devices on the Windows 10 Creators Update at their own risk knowing that it’s unsupported.
