Microsoft taking over control for Updates on Windows 10 Mobile

“Do great things” and “Achieve More”, this is what Microsoft says and it looks like its working the same way .

In a blog post by Terry Myerson, who is leading the Windows and Xbox team at Microsoft he clearly mentions “Here at Microsoft, we take our responsibility to keep Windows secure seriously. We follow up on all reported security issues, continuously probe our software with leading edge techniques, and proactively update supported devices with necessary updates to address issues. And today, we’re announcing this continuous update process applies to all Windows 10 devices, including phones

This seems to mean that Carrier locked phones would not have to wait for an update to be approved by the Carrier first and would get the update directly with all the other same devices . But this happens after Windows 10 Mobile update is officially rolled out the public later on .

This doesn’t mean that the carriers have no role now says Ed Bott on ZDNet .

He reports,

“That doesn’t mean the carriers are completely out of the loop. The Windows Insider program will continue after the launch of Windows 10 Mobile, which means anyone who registers with the Insider program can get early access to updates with new features. The carriers will be part of that testing program, I’m told, probably getting access to builds at the same time as Microsoft’s Elite Dogfood group, and their input will help Microsoft decide when an update is ready to go out to all devices.

But those updates will be delivered simultaneously, to all devices on all carriers, meaning much less opportunity for fragmentation.

This new approach sounds very much like what Apple does with iOS on iPhones and iPads, with new versions going out through Software Update independently of carriers.”
