Windows 10 Creators Update will only come to 13 handsets

While desktop PCs and notebooks are already set to have the latest Creators Update of Windows 10, the mobile version of the update will only be available to a select few.

Sadly, only 13 handsets are eligible for the update. Other Windows 10 Mobile smartphones like the Lumia 930 and Lumia 1520 will be left behind when the update gets released. Also, only the listed phones will be able to test out future Insider builds.

We recognize that many Insiders will be disappointed to see their device is no longer supported. We looked at feedback from our Windows Insiders and realized that we were not providing the best possible experience for our customers on many older devices. That helped us determine which devices we support for the Windows 10 Creators Update. We are continually listening to your feedback to provide the best experience for ALL of our customers. — Windows Insider chief Dona Sarkar

The Windows 10 Creators Update for smartphones will become available on supported devices on April 25.
