Microsoft Windows 10 Mobile Anniversary Update rolling out


The Windows 10 Anniversary Update is on its way to Windows 10 Mobile devices, Microsoft confirmed today. It's not quite as feature packed as the desktop update released for PCs earlier this month, but does add some niceties like a camera shortcut and media controls on the lock screen, plus a new, vastly improved universal Skype app. The settings menu has seen some changes, and the Anniversary Update also adds support for fingerprint readers to Windows 10 Mobile.

The release build appears to be 14393.67, which is the same release for Fast Ring Insiders a few weeks ago. As a result, those on the Insider program and who are on that build will not see an update.

The update is reportedly 943 MB in size.

To manually check for the update, on Start, swipe over to the All apps list, then select Settings > Update & security > Phone update > Check for updates. Note that availability may vary by manufacturer, model, country or region, mobile operator or service provider, hardware limitations and other factors.
