Microsoft’s new mobile operating system will not remain reserved for the new offers such as Lumia 950 and Lumia 550 but will be rolled out for the other device from Microsoft as well.

However, initially the phones which were set to be updated to the new Windows 10 by the end last year are now expected to release by early 2016. On the other hand, there is still confusion regarding the exact list of phones that will be receiving the update soon. Also, as everybody seems to release a slightly different list of devices getting the update than was said previously. So, we are assuming that Microsoft can also do something varied from early rumors and to the official carrier announcements.

Recently, the Lumia 535 and Lumia 640 smartphones are now receiving the Windows 10 update being rolled out as an OTA (over-the-air) version. Now, there are reports that the US giant has finally decided to put an end to the whole confusion relating to the Windows 10 update for its Lumia devices.
