Microsoft’s Windows 10 Upgrade Advisor App Will Help Upgrade From Windows Phone 8.1
Microsoft is working aggressively to push Windows 10 to all PC users running Windows 7 or Windows 8.1. On the Windows mobile front, Microsoft is allegedly working on “Windows 10 Upgrade Advisor” app that will help Windows Phone users to upgrade their devices to Windows 10 Mobile.
Microsoft is soon expected to release Windows 10 Mobile. Before the release, Microsoft wants its users to make sure their devices can smoothly upgrade to Windows 10. For this, Microsoft will launch an app called Windows 10 Upgrade Advisor app. The working of the app is very simple. Once you load the app on your Windows Phone running Windows Phone 8.1, it scans it and displays whether your device can be updated to Windows 10.
The Windows 10 Upgrade Advisor app checks for available free memory and it can also free up storage space for you so that the upgrade can be performed. It also allows you to move pictures or videos to a memory card or upload it to OneDrive to free up space. You have to manually select the files you want to be moved. After Windows 10 Mobile is installed on your Windows Phone, you can use the app to restore back the files again.
In the first phase, Microsoft is set to release Windows 10 Mobile upgrade for Lumia 430, Lumia 435, Lumia 532, Lumia 535, Lumia 540, Lumia 635 (1 GB), Lumia 640, Lumia 640 XL, Lumia 735, Lumia 830, and Lumia 930. The release date is not yet available officially but looking at how things are progressing it is safe to say that it will happen soon. Here is a screenshot of the app’s listing on the Windows Store:
The Windows 10 Upgrade Advisor app is still not available to the public but thanks to WMPU for releasing the info and screenshots of the app.
