Microsoft releases a list of handsets that will receive the Windows 10 Fall Creators update
The Windows 10 Mobile Fall Creators Update (Version 1709) is only being released to select Windows 10 Mobile powered handsets. Today, Microsoft disseminated a list of devices that are going to receive the update and conspicuous by absence are the Microsoft Lumia 640 and Microsoft Lumia 640 XL. These were launched in the middle of 2015, and now, it appears that Microsoft is no longer supporting the pair.

Remaining on the list to receive the update are some top shelf models like the HP Elite x3 (including versions for Verizon and Telstra), the Microsoft Lumia 950 and Microsoft Lumia 950 XL. Note that some of the handsets on the list are no longer for sale. The devices receiving the Windows 10 Mobile Fall Creators Update include:

Microsoft says that before downloading and installing the update, make sure that your phone is running Windows Phone 8.1 GDR1 QFE8 or later. In addition, since the file weighs in at 1.4GB, you need to be connected to a Wi-Fi network to download it. Microsoft also notes that in many cases, some of your device's internal storage might be employed, forcing you to remove unneeded files to complete the update.

The update includes the latest emoji from Unicode, Two Factor Authentication to help make enterprise owned handsets more secure, and a number of bug fixes.
