Last week, Microsoft announced that Windows 10 Mobile Insiders could receive new updates on their devices if they set them back to the Production ring. Starting today, the software giant is making the new process official, but only folks with the Lumia 950 will be able to take advantage.

We should point out that the update is only available via the Production ring for today only, so users are asked to switch to the Production ring, download the update, then switch back to their desired Insider ring.

Furthermore, we understand that beginning on March 3, 2016, all future firmware for Windows 10 devices will be auto-published for Insiders, according to Microsoft. The company says that this should do away with the gap in-between when a firmware is available for retail users.

We are launching an additional group of firmware updates for Lumia 950 devices. To check and see if your device has an available update, please see this link: Firmware variants”

For today only, if you want this new firmware, please switch to the Production ring on your device, check for updates, and then switch back to your desired Insider ring after you have completed the firmware update.

Auto-Publishing Firmware for Windows Insiders is Going Live:

It starts tomorrow! As of March 3rd at 10am PST, all firmware updates for Win10 devices will be auto-published for Insiders. This allows us to deliver on our goal of eliminating the gap in time between when firmware is available for Retail users and Windows Insiders, as well as eliminating the manual steps that were previously required (switching to the Production ring).

As stated above, folks will be required to have a Lumia 950. To get the update, just switch over to the Production ring then after installing, switch back to the Insider ring.

When March 3 comes around, folks will be able to receive updates on any Insider device without having to go through the same steps of switching to a specific ring.

The software giant mad this important announcement via the Microsoft Community.
