[October patch live] Windows 10 Mobile September security update starts hitting devices
This story is being continuously updated…. New updates are being added at the bottom…..
Original story (from Sept 13) follows:
Microsoft and Nokia came together in 2011, to bring out the Nokia Lumia smartphones that will be powered by the Microsoft’s Windows OS. Nokia went ahead and completely ditched the Android operating system.
As a result, the Nokia Lumia smartphone and their collaboration with Microsoft turned out to be a huge disaster and the implementation of the Windows OS completely failed. Moreover, Microsoft sold Nokia in 2013 and later Nokia was bought over by HMD Global.
The impact of using Android on Nokia smartphones and the take-over by HMD Global has been very fruitful for Nokia, as the brand has joined the race and is making efforts to cement their place in today’s competing smartphone market.
However, Microsoft rolled out the Windows 10 Mobile update for the Nokia Lumia based smartphones for the arm-based devices. The update carries the version number OS Build 15254.587, was released on 10 September 2019, and is now hitting the units.
Below is the change log of the Windows 10 update as well as the screenshot for the same shared via tweet by one of the users:
