Microsoft finally rolling out Windows 10 Mobile upgrade

Currently Microsoft's Windows 10 Mobile operating system is available only on the some of the latest released devices and we haven't heard any creditable news on its availability for older devices running Windows 8.1.

Previously, the only supported way to get Windows 10 Mobile was to buy newer phones like the Lumia 650 or Lumia 950/950XL. "The Windows 10 Upgrade Advisor app can be downloaded from the Windows Store to see if the upgrade is available for your device".

Both agree that the Lumia 435, 535, 635 (1GB RAM model), 640, 640XL, 735, 830 and 930 will be eligible, with Microsoft's list also adding the Lumia 430, 532 and 540. Now, along with the Twitter app on desktop and tablets, users can access Twitter for Windows 10 on mobile phones.

Once the app is downloaded, select on the "Enable Windows 10 upgrade" option and then tap on "Next'".

Microsoft also said its "Data Protection Under Lock" feature, which allow for the encryption of email data and attachments and requires a pin lock key to decode the content, is not available on Windows 10 mobile.

Microsoft's updated Windows 10 maps app is going to feature an improved driving mode, one particular feature that was lagging behind in Microsoft's own app when compared to Here Maps.

"Based on your comments on HERE 360 and elsewhere, we know many of you are already having a good experience using Windows Maps".
