Microsoft is very close to releasing the Windows 10 Mobile update for older Lumias running Windows Phone 8.1. The company recently released Windows 10 Mobile build 10586.36 (cumulative update) for non-Insider preview handsets, Lumia 950 and Lumia 950 XL.
Now T-Mobile Germany confirms that Windows 10 Mobile update for Lumia 535, Lumia 635, Lumia 640, Lumia 640 XL, Lumia 830 and Lumia 930 is coming very soon. The company posted the following details about the firmware and OS versions number on their website:
Microsoft Lumia 950 01078.00027.15506.02027 Windows 10 mobile build 10.0.10586.29

Microsoft Lumia 640 LTE 02177.00000.15184.36002 Windows 10 mobile build 10.0.10586.29
However, the company said that update will not release for all the selected device at the same time, as it could result in overloading of server and it may take up to 2 weeks for the roll-out for all the devices. It also seems the Windows 10 Mobile update roll-out OS version is still 10586.29, which is bit surprising, as feedback tells us that 10586.36 is better than 10586.29 in stability and polish.

We shared an anonymous tip claiming official Windows 10 Mobile roll-out to begin on January 12, so seems Carriers are already in preparation mode for their devices. You can read what features and changes Windows 10 Mobile brings with itself by clicking here.
