Windows 10 Creators Update to hit only 13 handsets

The new software should roll out to most compatible handsets in the coming days, but Microsoft confirmed an issue with the new Windows 10 update for mobiles as well. The company is working on fixing this problem, so all supported units get the Creators Update promptly.

Since Windows 10 Creators Update is now rolling out to PCs all over the world, hearing that this would soon happen for Windows 10 mobile users is not surprising. Sadly, Microsoft has decided to shrink the list of handsets that would get the official update, pushing aside some of the devices that received this update in its beta stage.

According to the blog post recently published by Microsoft's software engineer Dona Sharkar, "these are the Windows 10 Mobile devices we will officially support in the Windows Insider Program going forward:"

For now, it looks like a few of the compatible handsets are not receiving the update, but Microsoft is aware of this and is working on fixing the issue.

The devices that received the beta will no longer get any future builds, but their owners can keep the latest software, knowing that any kind of support from Microsoft is no longer available.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
