Microsoft Rolls Out Firmware Update For Lumia 950/950 XL

Posted by at 10:43 am on December 28, 2015


Microsoft announced the first firmware update for the recently released Lumia 950 and 950 XL Windows 10-based smartphones. European users were among the first to see the new update for the Microsoft devices, but U.S. customers may have to wait a bit before they see it.

The new firmware, version 01078.00027.15506.020xx, features several improvements to the phone’s stability, performance, SD card support, automatic display brightness, camera issues and a fix for a 4K video problem that was causing stripes to appear while playing a video.

These improvements are a welcomed announcement, but U.S. carriers seem to be slow to the punch, as we cannot confirm that AT&T or T-Mobile (the only two companies that currently support the Lumia 950 and 950 XL domestically) have deployed the patch as of yet. Microsoft noted that the availability of the firmware update “may depend on your network service provider,” ominously shifting responsibility to the carriers, which as of right now, seem to be lagging behind.
