Some good news for Windows Phone users regarding the Windows 10 Phone update to their devices, Microsoft will control the updates and not the carriers.
This means that Microsoft will decide when the Windows 10 Phone update will be released to a particular handset and not the mobile carriers.
The news comes from Microsoft’s Panos Panay, who gave a statement regarding the updates to WMPU, you can see the statement below.
“Microsoft is working closely with mobile operators to leverage their testing and our flighting to meet and exceed current quality bars. We will use their input but will decide when to send the updates out based on input form Mobile Operators and our Windows Insiders.”
This means that you should not have to wait for your individual carrier to release the update for your handset, instead when Microsoft decides to release it for a particular device, it should be pushed to all carriers at the same time.
