Microsoft starts rolling out Windows 10 Mobile Anniversary updates


Microsoft has started rolling out its Windows 10 Anniversary update for its mobiles which was announced at Build, Microsoft’s annual web developer conference, just earlier this year.

The update has been rolled out in phases, so depending on your manufacturer, region and network operator, users would be getting the update accordingly. The update currently being rolled out has the build number 10.0.14393.67 and is said to be 943MB in size.

This update comes with a host of features such as rich notifications, notification sync, camera shortcut and media controls on the lock screen and a Skype app built on the Universal Windows Platform. Now, there is also support for fingerprint readers to Windows 10 Mobile. While the update still isn’t as feature-rich as the update for PCs, it still has its fair share of improvements. 

Users who use smartphones running on Windows 10 Mobile can also manually check for updates. To do so, go to Settings. Click on Update and Security, then click on the Phone Update tab and then tap on Check for updates.

This update for mobiles comes on the heels of the Windows 10 Anniversary update for PCs rolled out just earlier this month. It brought new functionality to Cortana with improvements in Edge Browser. Windows Ink Workspace was also improved alongside launching new pen apps such as Sketchpad, Screen sketch and Sticky Note.

According to Microsoft’s blog post, two major updates will be unveiled for Windows 10 next year. However, there’s some sad news too, as the Windows 10 update released next year is likely to be the last update. Two additional features can also be expected in 2017.
