Microsoft And Verizon Fix Lumia Icon Upgrade Faux Pas, Official Windows 10 Incoming
One of the worst own goals Microsoft scored in the official release of Windows 10 Mobile as an upgrade for Windows Phone 8.1 devices was the Lumia Icon disaster. Despite clearly meeting the requirements to receive the upgrade the Icon was missing from the official list of supported devices.
That the virtually identical Lumia 930 did receive the upgrade did nothing to make the situation less vexing for Icon owners.
Verizon, for whom the Icon was an exclusive, was clearly the problem. So in the months since the release there has clearly been some behind the scenes manoeuvring and the outcome is that the Icon will indeed get the Windows 10 release after all.
Verizon has a web page detailing the update, so if you’re an Icon owner – who hasn’t trashed their device in frustration already – the good news is that you can get the upgrade by following the instructions here.
