nokia-lumia-iconThe Nokia Lumia Icon was introduced in 2014 which means as far as smartphones are concerned, it is considered by many to be “old”, which also means that its status as to whether or not it is eligible for upgrades remains to be seen. Last we heard, which was in March this year, there was talk about it being upgraded to Windows 10 Mobile.

The good news is that the debate is over as Verizon has confirmed that the Lumia Icon will be receiving its upgrade to Windows 10 Mobile. The update is expected to begin on the 23rd of June, meaning that it should have started rolling out yesterday to owners of the handset on Verizon’s network.

If you haven’t received it yet, don’t worry as it is probably being rolled out in stages and will eventually make its way to you. Verizon has even created a page in which users can find out more details about how to get their Lumia Icon handsets ready for the update, so head on over if you’d like to prepare yourself.

No doubt this is pretty good news as the update to Windows 10 Mobile is essentially like giving the handset a new lease on life, so if you have a Lumia Icon stashed somewhere, perhaps it’s time to dust it off and see how different Windows 10 Mobile will make your handset feel.
