Microsoft released Windows 10 Mobile Creators Update to 13 selected Windows Phones on April 26. Windows 10 Mobile Creators Update is not a major upgrade over Anniversary Update but there are still some important bug fixes, plus performance has been slightly improved. Microsoft has already released Windows 10 PC Creators Update but the update for mobile was delayed.

AdDuplex has published the latest market share report and it has revealed that over 56% Windows Phone devices are already running Windows 10 Mobile Creators Update. Although, Windows 10 Mobile Creators Update was released much later but the adoption rate is faster than expected.

AdDuplex noted, “this could be attributed to the likely enthusiast nature of most people still using Windows 10 Mobile or much more limited variety of hardware.”

It is worth noting that the powerful Windows Phones like Lumia 830, 930 are not eligible for update. The following devices received the update:

  • Alcatel IDOL 4S
  • Alcatel OneTouch Fierce XL
  • HP Elite x3
  • Lenovo Softbank 503LV
  • MCJ Madosma Q601
  • Microsoft Lumia 550
  • Microsoft Lumia 640/640XL
  • Microsoft Lumia 650
  • Microsoft Lumia 950/950 XL
  • Trinity NuAns Neo
  • VAIO VPB051

    “Windows 10 Mobile Creators Update is already running on 56% of Windows Phones”
    Great, How big is the data sample? (100% = 10 devices?)
    Given that all Windows Mobile users are forced to move to Android or iPhone…

    So far I am still resisting and enjoying my 950XL as long as I can (on “Feature 2” releases) but it starts to become painful (everyday, there is a WP/W10M app being terminated and less update/interest from the app developer community!!! (too small of a user base compare to other OS, why bother developing app for a dying platform, as told (“W10 mobile is dead”) by many online media!)
    Let’s hope that the rumoured “Fall” Win10M phone (not Surface Phone) will really materialise and Win10M, or whatever it will be called (Win10 on ARM?) will bounce back (a very big bounce back would be needed)
    Lets’hope !.

    No. The correct title should be “Windows 10 Mobile Creators Update is already running on 56% of WINDOWS 10 MOBILE [p]hones” (in lower case), since W10M was just the 17% of Windows [p]hones according to the same AdDuplex (Feb ’17) > SlideShare/adduplex/adduplex-windows-device-statistics-report-february-2017

      Or “Windows 10 Mobile Creators Update is already running on 3.29% of Windows [p]hones”.
