Microsoft delays Windows 10 Mobile and Lumia updates

— 3:23 PM on January 22, 2016

Users looking forward to Windows 10 Mobile are going to have to wait a little longer. According to VentureBeat, Microsoft is delaying the release of the new operating system, and has now settled on a February launch.

This marks the second delay for the release of Windows 10 Mobile, which was supposed to have originally come out in December. The site says the bad news was sent to Microsoft partners via e-mail, although the company apparently refrained from stating an exact reason for the delay.

That's not all, though. That same e-mail states that the January software update for the Lumia 950 and Lumia 950 XL handsets will be equally delayed to at least February. While good software is generally preferable to early software, these successive delays can't be helping Windows Mobile's struggling market share.
