Microsoft Plans Windows 10 Update For Windows 8 Lumia Phones

/ 3 years ago


Microsoft has announced that its existing Lumia handsets running Windows 8 will update to Windows 10 when it becomes available. It made the pledge on its official Twitter account, in response to a customer question, tweeting, “We plan to upgrade all Windows Phone 8 devices to Windows 10 in the future.”

Though not exactly a press announcement, such a public declaration on an official social media account suggests the statement can be taken as concrete. Two years ago, Microsoft displeased Lumia users when they revealed that Windows Phone 7 devices would not be updated to Windows 8 due to a kernel problem. The company seems to have made plans to avoid undermining customer satisfaction a second time.

    That’s great news for people using older cheaper Win 8 phones like the Nokia 520 etc. I wish Google controlled updates to ALL Android devices and not the manufacturers. If you’ve got anything less than a high end phone 6 months or slightly older you’re generally stuffed as far as updates go.
