Microsoft hasn’t shown much of, to say nothing of launched Windows 10. That isn’t stopping the company from delivering some seriously good news for buyers of devices running its Windows Phone 8 and Windows Phone 8.1 operating systems. According to the company, both groups will be able to update to Windows 10 when it becomes available.
Whether or not all current Windows Phones would get the Windows 10 update due next year is certainly on the minds of many people. In the past, I have detailed why the chances of a Windows 10 update being available were much higher this time around, as opposed to the trend-breaking Windows Phone 8 OS. On November 11, the official Lumia Twitter account has publicly declared all Lumia phones with Windows Phone 8 would get an update next year. In a tweet responding to @_Y06_, the Lumia account is quite explicit about the new OS: “There will be Windows 10 upgrades for all Lumia Windows Phone 8 devices 🙂 And we will release new Windows 10 models in the future!”
