Lumia Windows phones haven’t yet all been given the opportunity to try the new Windows 10 operating system for mobile devices – Microsoft previously stated that at first the OS would be arriving on mid-level phones, so up until recently the entire Lumia range for example has not yet been upgraded,

The reason for some of the lacking inclusions is to do with partition sizes on phones. Some phones use different hard disc sizes and models and the code for getting the single OS to work with these partitions isn’t yet ready. however Microsoft has promised the code will be on the way via their Twitter.

However Microsoft’s been on the move, and will soon be expanding the compatibility for phones with the new OS – a whole host of devices will soon be given the opportunity to upgrade, meaning that now even older and more complex phones have been included. Here’s the full list of newly added devices.

This is the entire list of supported phones right now, and of course the ones included on here will be given the ability to upgrade, if not now very soon. Highlights include the Lumia 1020, 1320, 1520, 920 and the Icon. It’ll take a good few days before the update drops so check in 7-10 days at our best guess.

The popular Lumia 930 isn’t yet here, but of course once Microsoft fiddles around the phone should be able to get Windows 10 in the next update. of course the more modern devices will most likely be the last to get support, but again, the next update might be the one for 930 owners.
