Microsoft has started the official rollout of its Windows 10 Mobile Creators Update today, but as of now, only 13 models are eligible for the update following a controversial decision announced earlier this month.

According to data collected by AdDuplex, this means that only 60.8 per cent of the Windows 10 Mobile phones out there are listed as supported for the Creators Update. This means that over 39 per cent of the devices are stuck with the previous version.

 

At this point, Microsoft Lumia 640 is the number one Windows 10 Mobile device with a market share of 13.3 per cent, followed by Lumia 550 and Lumia 535. The 640 XL is also close with 11.3 per cent, while the 950 is next with 7.7 per cent.

AdDuplex says that 4 out of 10 top phones aren’t getting the Creators Update, so their only option is to either revert to the stable version of the Anniversary Update or stick with the existing Creators Update preview builds which are running just fine anyway.

Microsoft says that leaving some Windows phones behind is a decision that had to be made because of the feedback received from users participating in the Windows Insider program.

 

“We looked at feedback from our Windows Insiders and realized that we would not be able to provide the best possible experience for our customers on many of these older devices. That helped us determine which devices we support for the Windows 10 Creators Update,” the company explained.
