Fearing fragmentation and late delivery of updates. Microsoft is taking the job for itself to deliver every software update to all supported Windows Phone devices starting with Windows 10. Though this isn’t a brand new headline for Microsoft, a similar update route was already been discussed by Microsoft when the company released Windows Phone 8 and 8.1. With the upcoming Windows 10, the Redmond giant is making sure that every Windows device currently in operation should be getting their updates as soon as Microsoft releases them in the wild.
With this process, Microsoft would be going into a similar mechanism imposed by Apple for updating all Apple devices in the wild which are delivered without the network carriers involvements. On the part of Microsoft however, the carrier will still have the role of making sure that any updates would work on every Windows device using the carrier’s network services. Before any updates are released, Microsoft would work with carriers to test each updates and submit feedback to Microsoft before the delivery of any updates are rolled out.
According to ZDNet, a Microsoft spokesperson confirmed that the said feature will be available to Windows 10 Mobile devices, personal and business with the new update schemes to also be consistent with updates to Windows 10 for PC’s. All updates as always may consist performance enhancements and bug fixes and even new features are updates progresses.
