Windows 10 Mobile

Windows 10 Mobile is Microsoft’s latest mobile operating system for powering mobile devices like smartphones and tablets. It serves as the successor to Windows Phone 8.1, with the name change reflecting the mobile OS’s evolution as well as its integration in Microsoft’s unified approach to the Windows 10 operating system.

New Features in Windows 10 Mobile

Windows 10 Mobile introduces a variety of key new features and enhancements over previous Windows Phone and Windows Mobile releases, such as Continuum support (the ability to connect to an external display with mouse and keyboard input support for a PC-like desktop interface), Office Mobile updates and integrated Edge web browser.

Additional new features include support for Universal Windows apps (apps work and automatically scale across Windows-powered devices, from smartphones to laptops to desktops), notification system enhancements (with notification syncing among Windows devices) and more.

Windows 10 Mobile 2015 Release

Consumers got their first look at Windows 10 Mobile when it entered public beta testing in February 2015, but it wasn’t until December of 2015 that phones with the official release of Windows 10 Mobile went on sale.
