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!
