Private Microsoft Beta Suggests Windows 10 Mobile Upgrade is Almost Here

By Aatif Sulleyman on at

We’d almost forgotten about Windows 10 Mobile. Just kidding, obviously, but Microsoft’s really taken its sweet time with getting the operating system out there. Following months of nothingness really, we’ve finally got some good news for patient Windows 8.1 users.

Microsoft has created an internal beta for the Mobile Upgrade Advisor for Windows 10. It's not yet available to the public, but its very existence suggests that Windows 10 Mobile update is lurking just around the corner. The software promises to work out whether or not your Windows 8.1 handset is eligible for the bump up (best of luck to you all), and will also help you free up storage space.

Only Lumia 950 and Lumia 950 XL owners have been treated to the wonders of Windows 10 Mobile so far, though we expected to land towards the end of 2015. Fingers crossed the long, long wait is almost over. [Neowin]
