Microsoft had been providing mobile build updates at a more rapid clip in June, but held back on releasing multiple new versions in July as the company polished and shipped the desktop and tablet version of Windows 10. With that launch in the rear-view mirror, Microsoft Vice President Gabe Aul said in a blog post that users should expect to see more updates to the mobile version of Windows 10, which is slated for a consumer release this fall.
It could be a while before that launch actually translates to end users receiving the update, even for Lumia phones that Microsoft controls. Carriers have to approve the final update before it can roll out to users, which has held back Windows Phone updates for months in the past.
