Microsoft Lumia 950 and Lumia 950 XL receive update to new Windows 10 Mobile build
Microsoft has announced the February cumulative update for the Microsoft Lumia 950 and Microsoft Lumia 950 XL to Windows 10 Mobile 10.0.10586.107. After being sent out to those Windows Insiders in both the fast and slow rings, the update will start rolling out today to open market versions of the handsets. If Microsoft deems that there are no problems with the update, all other versions of the two phones will receive it over the next week.

To check to see if the new build of Windows 10 Mobile is ready to be downloaded and installed on your device, go to Settings > Update & security > Phone update > Check for updates. If the update is there, make sure that you are connected to a Wi-Fi network. Also, you need to have your battery charged to at least 50%. Once those two conditions are met, you can go ahead with the update.

The changelist includes:
  • Reliability and stability improvements.
  • Bluetooth connectivity improvements with car and other accessories.
  • Microsoft Edge improvements to PDF rendering and navigation.
  • Improvements for battery usage with Iris Recognition for Windows Hello.
  • Update system improvements to fix a situation where some users had phone software updates and app downloads stuck at 0% for extended time periods.
  • Change to update system to now require phone to be plugged into a charger when downloading and preparing phone software updates.
  • Fix for a problem causing erroneous low storage prompts for some users when trying to download phone software updates.
  • Fix for a problem that caused erroneous prompts of Outlook account settings being out-of-date for some users, although account settings had not been changed.
  • Fix for a problem that caused some phones to get stuck on BitLocker Recovery screen after a reset.

Microsoft says that it wants to hear your feedback. If you have anything to say about this build of Windows 10 Mobile, click on the sourcelink and let the software giant know exactly what you think of it (the update that is, not the company).

People still buy 'Lumia' phones? Just the name puts shivers down my spine!

Yes, Windows phone isn't without its share of problems... Windows 10 mobile has been universally panned by critics and even though I've never tried WP10, I'm a bit reluctant to drop my hard-earned cash on a Lumia 950... And that's coming from a WP hard-core fan... Lets see how long, or how far this dead man (or OS) goes... But seems like it's only a matter of time... ala Blackberry 10 OS...

BlackBerry 10 is still around, and will continue to be around, for quite some time: http://blogs.blackberry.com/2016/02/celebrating-priv-in-india-and-reiterating-our-commitment-to-the-blackberry-10-platform/ The new Lumia devices are just "place holders". Something to placate its users until Microsoft releases the Surface Phone, and I firmly believe they will be releasing the Surface Phone. Nadella wants to build a new legacy for Windows for Mobile users, and a new brand name with it (as far as handsets are concerned).

so far for me win10 hasn't done anything crazy on my devices since using it for a year now. It is rather polished in the latest updates, I get 18hr battery out of my usage which is perfect. In the end, really the only thing I miss is playing with a new device. Using 1520 atm
