Hi @shyg360!

 

You can stay up to date on all software releases for your device here.

 

The 950 will be receiving monthly WaaS (Windows as a Service) updates, and the latest one released on December 8th (Build Version 10.0.10586.29.) These updates are not certified by AT&T, and will be delivered via Microsoft over-the-air. A Wi-Fi connection is required. From the App List, scroll down and tap Settings > Phone Update > Check for Update.

 

 

Thanks!

We are talking about the firmware update, Not OS. According to Microsoft it depends on you guys on when we get it. So do you know when the firmware will roll out?

The firmware you are talking about has to be certified by Att before release so time will tell.

Please respond with the ETA of the firmware update 01078.00027.15506.020xx, which is carrier specific. http://www.bidnessetc.com/60043-microsoft-corporation-rolls-out-lumia-950950-xl-firmware-update-heres-whats/ 

 

This update should address issues that makes me want to return the phone.

Att does not release update schedules.  With all the problems the 950 series is having I can see them testing really well before certification.

 

I told everyone the updates would still have to go thru Att.  I returned my 950xl battery life was bad really bad.

I know that the firmware update must be approved thru at&t due to the radio stack changes that come with the update...a time frame would welcomed tho considering that update will improve my 950

Now that's interesting, my unlocked (non AT&T) test 950 and 950 XL have no battery issues running the latest 10586.36 build on stock firmware.

 

Maybe the AT&T apps or customizations to Windows 10 ??

My 950 XL also has great battery life, no issues whatsoever.

But you're not entirely correct either... Updates for the 950XL have been coming as Microsoft has released them. .36 is the latest OS update, battery life was improved on that build.

10586.36 has shown marked improvement in battery life, not just with the Lumia 950 XL, but all other Lumia devices that I have... 920, 1020, 640, 1520.

 

When Microsoft gets back from Holiday's it'll be interesting to see if the new firmware impacts battery life.

If you have the AT&T version of the 950 then you may have to wait on AT&T Testing? that is a grey area I believe; how a firmware update to an AT&T phone will be handled. AT&T should be able to answer that.

 

Some here confuse firmware and OS updates - I am not syaing that you @shyg360 confuse the two. Firware updates will come much less frequently than OS updates.

a firmware upgrade would definitely require testing; but, it would be nice (just as a change of pace) for AT&T to actually provide an update to current users on the status. Being patient is fine, being left in the dark is quite another matter altogether....

I updated my Microsoft Lumia 950 XL firmware a couple of days ago. An advantage of having an unlocked phone I guess.
