Before We starting the instructional part, let’s me just tell you a couple of things, even I mentioned this method will work for all windows phones, what I meant to say that it will work for the majority of windows phones from the past few years. to check if you’re model is compatible for this upgrade, please have a look at this.
These are all the windows 10 upgrade compatible devices officially, If you Identify your model here then you are good to go, otherwise, you’re out of luck, we hope Microsoft will announce a software version for windows 10 mobile for your particular model as well. You can also check the device upgradability in the video description as well.
I hope all you have your windows phones fully charged or connected to a power source, it’s very important! I recommend you to keep your phone connected to the charger throughout the procedure, otherwise, there is a higher risk, because when we doing the upgrade especially while its installation process, if the power of your battery goes down, it will crash your phone and your phone will end up in a state of malfunction.
Don’t worry we can recover it even if that’s the case, but it’s better to take proper precautions before attempting something like this. And the next thing you have to do is to make sure you have backed up your all important files and contacts to an external source or even to the cloud if you have something that important.
And the final thing you have to do is get your phone connected to a proper internet connection like I’m suggesting you to connect to a wifi source. otherwise, you can use your phone data as well. If you have done all the above mentioned things then we are pretty much ready to go with the upgrade.
First I will prove to you that this particular windows phone is currently at system software version windows phone 8.1.
Also, I suggest you get the latest update for your current Operating system, for example, if your phone has windows 8 go to settings update and check for the updates.
And I think there is nothing more to warn you about So let’s jump straight into the upgrade! Go to the app store and download this app called upgrade advisor, if you haven’t seen it in the store, there will be a direct link in the post description, that will get you straight in the app page.
So go ahead and install it. Once it’s finished, you can open the app. Now follow my instructions. As you can see, we have launched the app and the first thing you have to do here is to check if the windows 10 upgrade is available for your particular phone, If your device falls under the model numbers which I showed earlier, then you don’t have to worry, because there will be an upgrade available for you for sure.
So click on next, and it will do the windows 10 upgrade availability checkup. It will only take a few seconds. And here we go. as you can see, luckily my phone is ready for this Windows 10 Upgrade.
You can see this green check mark and the upgrade available message. It sees a very good sign to me. if there is a windows 10 build available for your device you will be also land on to the same page. Hope you all have an upgrade available.

As you can see this phone is ready for the upgrade, it found the update files so you can touch done, and the app will close itself.
Because it’s already severed its purpose! Now you need to go to your phone settings and navigate to phone update. And here we go! As you can see it’s already started downloading the files for the upgrade.
Because I already set automatically download updates if my data settings allow it. If yours doesn’t start yet, just start the updates download manually and wait until it finishes. This update files may take you a while to download in some case, but it actually depends on your internet speed, for comparison, I’m using a 25 Mbps connection to do this upgrade and if you have a greater connection you can grab the updates faster, otherwise it will take longer! to give you more light on this, let me tell you the Windows 10 Mobile software is approximately or nearly 2 gigs or lets it’s around 1.75 GBs.
As you can see it’s downloaded the updates and it starts the preparation for installing the updates. I think this will take a while, so let’s wait unit it does. And here we go, it’s just finished the preparation, so touch on the install button.
And you will get here, it is a service agreement form from Mircosoft if you wanna read, just scroll it down as you read or just click on accept to start the process instantly. and your phone will restart. And you can see it begins the Window 10 upgrade. and you can check the progress of the process by simply analyzing the progress bar under this spinning gears.
Hope you all are connected your phone to a power source unless you have the confidence for your battery life. It will reboot your phone several time while the process, so done get panic and don’t do anything stupid, the whole upgrade thing is gonna take a long time, so I suggest you leave your phone alone until it’s fishing.
Meanwhile, you can watch something or browse the web or do anything which pleases you. For me, it’s a mood to play something in the meanwhile! So see you guys once it does! Have a great time!
It seems we are almost done, it says we’re getting there, and as you can see it’s migrating your data to the new OS and getting things ready for you.
