It took until the late hours of April 25, but Microsoft finally began delivering on its promise that it would rollout the mobile version of Windows 10 Creators Update to compatible handsets. For better or worse, the update is available for some.
Dona Sarkar announced the beginning of the rollout with just 10 minutes of April 25 to spare…
For those waiting for the Mobile Creators Update, that’s rolling out in waves across regions now.

According to Dona and others, there’s really not a lot of new features in the official release, but Microsoft instead decided to focus on performance and stability – which is Microsoft-speak for plugging holes and fixing bugs.
Microsoft is only officially making this update available for a subset of Windows Phones. Those are: HP Elite x3, Microsoft Lumia 550, Microsoft Lumia 640/640XL, Lumia 650, Microsoft Lumia 950/950 XL, Alcatel IDOL 4S, Alcatel OneTouch Fierce XL, SoftBank 503LV, VAIO Phone Biz, MouseComputer MADOSMA Q601, and Trinity NuAns NEO.
If you’re using a phone deemed unsupported by Microsoft you can still get the update by joining the Release Preview ring.
