Microsoft has updated Windows Mobile for the last time

14 November 2019

Microsoft has been trying for years to create a popular mobile OS. Alas, it failed to compete with iOS and Android. Windows Mobile failed to win the love of users.

The company's most "recent" attempt is Windows 10 Mobile. Several smartphones from Alcatel, HP and other partners came out based on it. Microsoft's Lumia branded handsets are also on the list.

Unfortunately, the development of the platform was frozen. The history of the system ended with the Windows 10 Mobile Fall Creators Update (version 1709). It happened in 2017.

Since then,gadget owners haven't seen any patches. It seemed that Microsoft had forgotten about the fans. Suddenly, however, the corporation released the Windows 10 Mobile Fall Creators Update.

The build is numbered 15254.597 and is for the following devices:

  • Trinity NuAns NEO
  • MouseComputer MADOSMA Q601
  • VAIO Phone Biz
  • SoftBank 503LV
  • Alcatel OneTouch Fierce XL
  • Alcatel IDOL 4S

  • Microsoft Lumia 950
  • Microsoft Lumia 650
  • Microsoft Lumia 640 XL
  • Microsoft Lumia 640
  • Microsoft Lumia 550

What's so interesting about 15254.597? There are no new features, but security issues have been fixed . Microsoft has fixed a lot of bugs found since 2017.

Sounds great. Microsoft hasn't been in too much of a hurry, though. How many of the models listed are still in production?
