Fall Creators Update will also arrive on mobile devices in the week. It is already available in Finland, but it will also be gradually spread throughout the world with the canonical roll-out.
Last week, Microsoft kicked off Windows 10 Fall Creators Update roll-out procedures, starting with PCs that can deliver the most up-to-date upgrade experience based on internal tests conducted. The company did not specify when the new update was expected on Mobile, and to give some more information was Brandon LeBlanc of Microsoft in response to a user on Twitter.
The Fall Creators Update for Mobile began rolling out on Oct. 17th starting with Finland. Open market devices start getting it this week.

“Fall Creators Update for Mobile is already roll-out in Finland since October 17th,” said LeBlanc. “Devices sold on the open market will begin receiving it by the end of this week. ” Windows 10 Mobile Fall Creators Update should appear on Windows Update as build 15254.1 but will be available for a very small number of devices: among these HP Elite x3, Alcatel Idols 4S, Lumia’s fifth generation, and some other models.
Lumia 640 and 640XL, which debuted in March 2015, will not receive the update unless users subscribe to the Microsoft Insider program. There are not many new features on the feature plan, including a new Portrait Mode on Continuum and some additional features for security. Obviously, bug fixes and generic optimizations in the code are also missing.
On Mobile we can not speak of a “major update”, but considering the state of the operating system and the lack of last-generation products to satisfy, it is a must. Joe Belfiore has publicly stated that the mobile operating system is currently stalling for the introduction of new features: user interest is too low, with Windows 10 Mobile being updated mainly for security reasons.
