Back in March, Microsoft revealed a few of its devices that would be receiving a Windows 10 Mobile upgrade. So, owners of the Lumia 640 XL should now be pleased to know that their device was among the approved list and should head straight to its system settings to check for the software upgrade that has just been released.

AT&T first released the news of the update’s approval on their Community Forums page which has now arrived seven months after of the Lumia 640 XL’s release. The AT&T cares Administrator stated that users would need to opt in and download the Windows Upgrade Advisor application to receive the upgrade. The app is used to perform a basic check on the device to enable users to download and install the upgrade. Though AT&T passed the approval in early June, it is still not known why the release took another five months to be released to the Lumia 640 XL.

Because of this, users of the handset were not notified about the upgrade finally being available. The news of the Lumia 64o XL upgrade resurfaced within 24 hours of its release in a post on Reddit. But nonetheless, with no official notification generated on the device, many users are still unaware of the newly released update. Seems like Microsoft is waiting for Windows 10 users to find out about the upgrade for on their own.

The new OS upgrades the device to version 14393.321, and has flooded the device with tons of new features,

“Update summary Effective October 27, 2016, AT&T and Microsoft released a software update for the Microsoft Lumia 640 XL. You can download the update via Firmware Over The Air (FOTA). A Wi-Fi connection is required for the update.”

For users who still don’t have the Upgrade Advisor running on their devices, head over to this link.
