Microsoft Corporation (MSFT) to Upgrade All Lumia Windows Phone 8 Devices to Windows 10

Microsoft Corporation (NASDAQ:MSFT) said that it would be upgrading all Lumia Windows Phone 8 devices to Windows 10. The company will complete the up-gradation process after Windows 10 is launched in the market. Microsoft provided the details of its official Lumia Twitter Inc (NYSE:TWTR) account.

On November 11, it tweeted answering to a customer’s query that its big operating system is in early stages of development. Therefore, it can’t disclose the exact details as to when the new update will be released.

The dilemma continues

Although Microsoft Corporation (NASDAQ:MSFT) has made an announcement on the official Twitter Inc (NYSE:TWTR) account of Lumia, still it cannot be considered as an official press release. The customers are eager to know about the technological limitations that are not allowing the up gradation to be completed at this time.

The confirmation on Twitter account comes as a relief for Lumia owners and trust that they will get a different experience this time.

The past issue

The owners of Lumia expect that the Microsoft Corporation (NASDAQ:MSFT) will not repeat the history. In 2012, Microsoft annoyed some of its loyal group of customers using Windows Phone 7 by announcing that they cannot upgrade their devices to Windows Phone 8. There was a change in the core software and therefore, it was not possible for Microsoft to provide the updates that time. The explanation cannot makeup for the loss.

The hopes are high

The Lumia owner’s hopes are high this time, and any disappointment can make them lose their faith over Microsoft Corporation (NASDAQ:MSFT). The encouraging part is that the main parts of Windows Phone 8 and 10 are not so much different. Therefore, it will be convenient for Microsoft to provide with the technical up gradation. There are no details provided by Microsoft about the launch date of Windows 10. It has even decided to name the latest version of its operating system as ‘Windows 10’ on all the platforms.
