Windows 10 Mobile updates for October 2019

icon

Windows 10 Mobile is now into its last three months of Microsoft's official support, though of course phones aren't going to suddenly stop working when 2019 ends. Under the hood here there are kernel and security fixes, for all phones currently running the '1709' branch (potentially most of you, see the links below). Grab this October 2019 update in Settings.

Microsoft go big with Samsung and the Galaxy Note 10

icon

Over in New York this evening, Samsung launched the Note 10 and the Note 10+, running One UI on top of Android, of course. Both very highly specced phones, despite some fan-annoying omissions. What's notable for AAWP is that Microsoft played a huge part in proceedings, see below, including an on-stage talk by Satya Nadella.

Windows 10 Mobile updates for June 2019

icon

Windows 10 Mobile is now somewhat in the rear view mirror in terms of Microsoft's mobile plans, though it can be argued that its spirit will live on in terms of 'modern OS'. And the OS is still supported, whatever you might have read elsewhere. Under the hood the foundations are receiving kernel and security fixes today, for all phones currently running the 1709 and 1703 branches. Grab this June 2019 update in Settings, in the usual way. Note that this may be branch 1703's last ever kernel and security update.

Two branches still! Windows 10 Mobile updates for May 2019

icon

Windows 10 Mobile may be far from the front line of Microsoft's 2019 mobile plans, but the OS is still supported, whatever you might have read elsewhere. Underneath the hood the foundations are receiving kernel and security fixes today, for all phones currently running the 1709 and 1703 branches. Grab this May 2019 update in Settings, in the usual way, though see the note below about backups. Next month will be the interesting one, with 1703 probably getting its last ever kernel and security update.

No, the Microsoft Store client isn't being frozen for Windows 10 Mobile

icon

With various scare stories being put forward over the weekend, I thought it appropriate to refute them with the aid of an informed tweet or two. The scare was that Microsoft wasn't going to update the Store client for Windows 10 Mobile anymore, potentially leading to something breaking earlier than planned. However, this didn't seem quite right, this early, and the dependable Rudy Huyn came to the rescue with an informed MVP viewpoint.

Nokia X71: this probably IS the PureView phone you're looking for...

icon

After the disappointment of the oddball 'Nokia 9 PureView', compared recently here to the Nokia 808 and Lumia 1020 (etc), Nokia (at least the new Nokia brand under HMD) has now announced another contender, this time with a more conventional PureView 48MP f/1.8 sensor - phew! The X71 is only just shown in China and will probably arrive in Europe as the 'Nokia 8.1 Plus', in a few months time. But with 3.5mm jack, expandable storage and capacitive fingerprint sensor (all missing in the '9') as well, plus the single large sensor configuration (plus wide-angle), this possibly is the PureView phone you're looking to move to?
