As promised, Microsoft released the first major update for Windows 10 – called Windows 10 Anniversary Update – on August 2nd. On that day the company said that it would also be releasing the update for Windows 10 Mobile in the near future. That day has finally arrived. Microsoft has now released Windows 10 Mobile Anniversary Update.
The Windows 10 Mobile Anniversary Update doesn’t bring as many features as are included in the desktop release but does bring some minor features and improvements, including but not limited to a new camera shortcut, media controls on the lock screen as well as an improved universal Skype application.
Windows 10 Mobile gets support for fingerprint readers in the Anniversary Update meaning that there will be Windows 10 Mobile devices in the future that are going to feature fingerprint sensors.
Those who have an unlocked device that’s eligible for an upgrade to Windows 10 Mobile will certainly receive the update sooner than those who have a locked handset. If they haven’t received the update notification yet they can manually check for the update by going to the Settings menu and accessing the Phone update section to reach the Check for updates option.
Microsoft does caution that availability depends on model, manufacturer, country or region so it may not be live for everybody at the same time, so do keep that in mind.
