Microsoft To Directly Push Updates For WIndows 10 Smartphones

Redmond giant Microsoft has said that it will have a direct say in the pushing of firmware updates for its upcoming Windows 10 smartphones. The company wants to ensure a uniformity of experience across devices like smartphones, tablets and PCs with minimal fragmentation.

To get the critical security and bug fixes as and when they are available, Microsoft is going to take a page from Apple’s playbook. They will directly push the updates to the users ensuring less downtime and fragmentation.

Wireless carriers in the US have been known to delay many updates for phones and this would be a great way to tackle the situation so users get the latest, right away.

Wireless carriers will be getting the updates for their internal testing and optimisations alongside the Windows Developer Program members. This will ensure that everyone has a say in the updates without delaying much of the process.

The direct pushing of updates will be done only for smartphones that will be shipped with the still elusive Windows 10. Smartphone owners which have Windows Phone 8.1 on their phones will have to trust their carriers to push out updates on time as they won’t be receiving the direct Windows 10 updates.

Windows 10 for smartphones is expected to be released alongside several Windows 10 announcements around October this year.

    certainly be one of the most beneficial in its field.
    Awesome blog!
