Great news for owners of Verizon’s Nokia Lumia Icon. After having carefully considered whether to roll out Windows 10 Mobile to this model (something we told you about in March), Microsoft has in fact decided to grace the Icon with the latest version of its mobile operating system.
Yes, ladies and gentlemen, the update to Windows 10 Mobile for the Lumia Icon should be on its way starting today, according to Verizon. As always in these cases, the rollout occurs over-the-air, so at some point you’ll get an update notification and you go from there. But since the update is going out in stages, it might be a few days before all Lumia Icon units receive it.
If you’re impatient, you can always manually check for the update by going to Settings > Phone update > Check for updates. It’s definitely good to see the Lumia Icon running the latest and greatest from Microsoft, since it’s one of the few Windows Phones ever sold by a major US carrier.
