Windows 10 Mobile Fall Creators Update

Microsoft still has yet to share a final date for the launch of the Windows 10 Mobile Fall Creators Update. Instead, the company revealed the list of eligible phones for the update.

Windows 10 Mobile devices that will support the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update (1709)

According to Microsoft, the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update will only be available for the following Windows 10 Mobile devices:

  • HP Elite x3
  • HP Elite x3 (Verizon/Telstra)
  • Wileyfox Pro
  • Microsoft Lumia 550/650/950/950 XL
  • Alcatel IDOL 4S/Alcatel IDOL 4S Pro
  • Alcatel OneTouch Fierce XL
  • Softbank 503LV
  • VAIO Phone BizMouseComputer MADOSMA Q601
  • Trinity NuAns Neo
  • MouseComputer MADOSMA Q601
  • Trinity NuAns Neo

Availability may vary by carrier and market.

You can still install the Fall Creators Update on other handsets

Microsoft announced earlier this year that older Nokia Lumia devices, including the Lumia 730, 735, 830. 930 and 1520 would not receive the Creators Update.

However, if you are the owner of any of these phones, you can still install the update by joining the Windows Insider Program and the Release Preview Ring. If you choose to do this, you should know that your device will be left unsupported.

Microsoft might do the exact same thing for the Lumia 640 and 640XL, and if you’re the owner of one of these two models, you can install the Fall Creators Update by joining either the Slow or Fast Ring. The company might close this loophole at some point, however.

Lumia handsets are almost three years old, and in tech terms, this means they’re practically ancestral. We’ll just have to see and see what exactly Microsoft decides to do with the Lumia 640 and Lumia 640XL.

If you want to get your hands on the Fall Creators update, you shouldn’t waste any more time and join the Windows Insider program right now!
