How to Upgrade

If you have an eligible device among the ones above, you can download the Advisor app from the Windows Store to check if Windows 10 Mobile upgrade is available for your device.

As the list above includes only a limited set of Windows Phone 8.1 devices, it also does not include some devices that are currently running Windows 10 Mobile via the Windows 10 Mobile Insider program.

For those who are not about to get Windows 10 Mobile upgrade, you must note that your devices may not suite the requirements Windows 10 Mobile will need to run smoothly. Here is what Microsoft has to say “As Windows 10 delivers significant new innovations, many older devices are not able to successfully upgrade without an impact on the customer experience.” as said Michael Fortin, CVP Windows and Devices Group Core Quality, in a blog post.

Fortin also added “Our goal is to only offer the Windows 10 upgrade to devices that we are confident can continue to deliver a good customer experience.”
