Lumia 950 / XL Firmware update available in UK now. (Camera improvements, Tap to Wake-up)


It seems the firmware update is now rolling out OTA in UK for unlocked Lumia 950 XL as confirmed by many tips.

It seems the firmware update is now rolling out OTA in Australia for Lumia 950 XL Optus and Lumia 950 unlocked versions too. Many US and Canada users have also reported receiving the OTA firmware update on their Lumia 950 XL. OTA roll-out is not yet happening for Lumia 950 in US.

Thanks to many of you for sending us the tips.

The Lumia 950 / 950 XL firmware update that brings Double Tap to Wake Up and some cool camera improvements is now available in US via WDRT. Yes, it is still not available OTA and also AT&T Lumia 950 doesn’t have the firmware available even via WDRT yet. So, if you have the unlocked Dual-Sim versions of these two devices in US you can grab the update using WDRT.

    The firmware update does not work right on my 950xl duel sim phone. sometime it has Wi-Fi and sometimes it lose it. If it does have Wi-Fi it will not connect to the internet sometimes.
