Windows 10 Technical Preview for Phones is now available for download. It is a pre-release version of Microsoft’s upcoming mobile operating system. You should download it only if you want to try a new operating system on your Windows Phone device. Since this is beta software, many of your favorite apps may not work on it and upgrading it now is not recommended on your primary phone as the preview is still a work in progress.
If you have a spare Windows Phone device lying around or if you just like to play with the latest (potentially buggy) operating system, read on.
Currently, Microsoft says that only six Lumia phones can download and install Windows 10 Technical Preview for the phone. These are:
- Lumia 630
- Lumia 635
- Lumia 636
- Lumia 638
- Lumia 730
- Lumia 830
More phones will be supported in a future build, but for now only users of the phones listed above can try Windows 10 Technical Preview.
