Lumia 950 and Lumia 950 XL getting double-tap to wake, WiFi fixes in new firmware

Besides a new Fast Ring update today owners of the Microsoft Lumia 950 and Lumia 950 XL should check for something else. New firmware with the build 01078.00053.16236.35xxx is now live for many devices in different regions regardless of Insider-status. However, this will be a rolling update (our AT&T Lumia 950 is not seeing it) so not all available devices will receive it today.

New features include the return of double tap to wake to modern Windows 10 Mobile devices like the Lumia 950 and Lumia 950 XL and the fix for recurring Wi-Fi disconnections. Here is the full changelog posted by Microsoft (opens in new tab):

  • Wi-Fi connectivity improvements, including fixes for Wi-Fi connection dropping randomly and Wi-Fi scan occasionally not returning any results.
  • Support for double tap to wake enabled.
  • Bluetooth connectivity improvements.
  • Stability and reliability improvements.
  • Camera improvements, including improved image and video quality, improved Auto-focus and fix for a problem that was causing slow motion capture to skip frames for some users.
  • Cellular connectivity improvements, including fix for a problem that caused occasional network loss for some users.
  • Audio quality improvements, including fix for a problem that caused voice call audio to get scrambled for some users.

Microsoft cautions:

The availability of the update may depend on your phone model, region or network service provider. Starting today, the update should become available for the first batch of phones and the remaining ones are expected to receive the update gradually.

To get the update go to Settings > Update & security > Phone update > Check for updates. If eligible you will see MICROSOFTMDG update waiting. We already have numerous reports of the firmware being live now for the phones as mentioned earlier.

Assuming your phone's region and model number are supported Insiders (Fast, Slow, Release Preview) and non-Insiders should be eligible for the firmware. There is no need to reset or rollback your phone using the Windows Device Recovery Tool. For those on AT&T or phones that do not yet have the update, it should come out over the next few weeks. AT&T's turn-around time is usually about 10 days, though it can vary.

Thanks, Alessandro and Jorn, for the tips

  • good news Dan thanks
  • i got "Windows Phone MICROSOFTMDG-update" and im from Finland i dont have insider windows 10M on my phone
  • That's because firmware releases are no longer tied to builds, i.e. today was a coincidence.
  • Downloaded on UK :)
  • What network / unlocked device?
  • Unlocked 950xl on Vodafone
  • Me same as you but no update here
  • I have AT&T and checking daily only to see Your device is up to date.It's deressing to know it's available, but stilll not receiving it.
  • I best add, dual.sim phone from France if that makes any difference...
  • Nothing for me. Lumia 950 EE UK factory unlocked.
  • It seems like the rollout started in Europe...
  • Yes! 950 might be my next phone because of this! Still happy with my new 1020 for now.
  • i was using nokia lumia 1020 until lumia 950 released and i can tell u... ull love this lumia 950 what ive noticed is that lumia 950 video recording sound isnt as great as nokia lumia 1020 and now on lumia 950 we're getting double tap wake back just like in nokia lumia 1020 :)
  • the camera is just superb on the L950/L950Xl initially i thought i would miss my old L1020 but the camera of the L950XL can actually at times produce better images than my main daily driver Samsung S7 Edge. i find my self using the L950XL more throught the day than my S7 Edge :)
  • love the camera too,  The only complaint woudl be the auto focus on mine cant seem to ever focus right.  I have to tap to focus on almost every picture or just go to manual focus. :(
  • I was having issues with sould on my 950 videos as well. When I played the files back on PC I was only gettign full sound our of the right speaker. I found the culprit. There are littel O rings that surround the mics under the  the back shell.  Pop your  shell off and inspect the two lics.  One is just noprht of the camera and flash. The other is near the bottom just south of the edge of the battery and sim slot.  These O rings can migrate over the mics to cover them up.  Just carefully push it back into place.  I have to do this every month or so. Hope that helps!
  • Amazing list of feature !!! :-o
  • Funny story, but it had me pissed off... I showed my supervisor my new 950. He says "you know WP is going away, right?"" I said "what, have you been reading phone arena again?"".... He says "no Lionel said that Nokia bought MS's WP OS, and they are killing it off!"" I said "what? Lionel doesn't know what I know, and you're better off trusting me.. Windows Mobile is in full development right now""... He says "well Lionel used to work for Nokia, so I think he knows what he's talking about... Lol❗❗.... "the only reason they are giving y'all updates is to prepare you guys for Nokia's takeover"".
    ....
    Wow! It was funny, but also annoying. SMDH.
  • Who's Lionel, the office idiot? Jebus...
  • Ahhh,  no.   Lionel is intellegent by the sounds of it....
  • Rodney didn't you just re purchase the 1520? What made you get the 950?
  • Anybody confirm if it's available in WDRT?
  • yeah it's there, I almost pull the trigger right before they announced the new build today. :-)
  • Awesome!
  • It will vary by device model/region. My US devices (unlocked/locked) do not have it listed OTA or WDRT. Heed caution.
  • #SadTrombone
  • installing right now in India, hope it will fix issue with camera related problem, such a good camera but the w10m does not look like perfectly leveraging its capability.
  • Chandan, which provider? Mine is Airtel and am still stuck at 218 OS build (no 3 or 4 series updates yet). This firmware update also am not seeing. 950XL/India/Airtel/NonInsider here!
  • Airtel, but I don't thinks it matters in india. I m not insider
  • I got it too in India. The carrier isn't an issue here in India.
    P.S feels cool too double tap to wake up.
    Loving my 950
  • Is any one facing issues with glance? After latest update glance has ceased to work nor double tap is working :(
  • same issue here. I did soft reset couple of timies, glance works but double tap to wake NOT working :(
  • Doesnt matter which provider. I am on Vodafone.. Getting the update..
  • Doesnt matter which provider. I am on Vodafone..Getting the update..
  • The carrier should not be an issue . on airtel myself and i got the update last night itself. maybe u should connect to a stable wifi network?
  • Lumia 950XL NL CV getting both updates!
  • Any words on the availability of Double Tap to Wake on Lumia 650 devices? Waiting eagerly for that feature.
  • Neither in Canada.
  • Hi @Daniel : Two things 1. When clicking on comments page navigation i.e '1 2 3 next> Last>>' , its returning a '.json' file instead of showing comments at that page.
    2. Do you have any update on this(Double Tap to Wake OTA update - 950XL ) , as I haven't got this update till yet Thank you :)
    Rishi
  • Thank you sir...as USA AT&T device...950
  • I dont see any difference even after the update. I did update my 950 xl unlocked with OTA update today. Deal breaker double tap to wake not working :(
  • Downloading on my 950 in Germany ...
  • Meany pants! Not downloading on my (unlocked) 950 in Germany ...
  • Weirdly I always find with my UK Unlocked devices I would get the firmware later, which always seemed unusual
  • I'll do this trick like in the restaurant when you decide to go smoking and halfway through your ciggy your meal suddenly arrives! Restarting in 3 - 2 - ...
  • It's there, but weirdly it seems that if you install the new firmware (which requires also rolling back to the current "Release" build of the OS, 10586.13169) and then re-enroll in the Insider program, it reverts you back down to firmware version 1078.00038.16082.36005 and you will no longer have tap-to-wake. There doesn't seem to be any way to update the firmware without also going back to the non-insider release build of the OS, and no way to keep the updated firmware if you do go back to the preview builds. At least that's what happened to me with my 950 XL. Your mileage may vary.
  • Thank You Microsoft! The WiFi bug has been killing me.
  • Yay! And this just hours after my Wi-Fi thread went berserk in the release candidate article earlier. Daniel, you just made my day. I'm actually tearing up a little this is making me so happy. And the return of double tap to wake?... it's like Christmas in this firmware update!
  • Update: Okay, maybe more like Christmas Eve, since I keep checking and it's not available on my phone yet (US unlocked dual-SIM Lumia 950).
  • Ayy lmaoo
  • So it looks like Santa took a break from delivering these gifts. Has anyone else with an unlocked US Dual-SIM Lumia 950 received this update yet?
  • Still anxiously awaiting the update on my US Dual Sim 950XL as well.
  • Still nothing here Lumia 950xl unlocked dual sin AT&T Maine.
  • Nothing yet on T-Mobile (950xl)
  • Do you receive the update? Because I have exactly the same 950 but nothing yet.
  • Nope. Still waiting. It showed up in the recovery tool on Monday, though, and usually the over the air update is not far behind.
  • You know what's funny? A month or so ago I switched out my old wifi network (some Belkin access points) for some fancy (and expensive) Cisco ones. I've been having these random WiFi disconnection issues where my 950 would say it was connected but I didn't have an Internet connection - only restarting the device would fix it. I was cursing these new wap's as I never had the same issue with the Belkin's. I didn't even realise that other people might be having the same issue, and it must've coincided with a previous update on my mobile that introduced the issue. Similarly, I've been having some random disconnections from my mobile carrier network... but they've been doing network upgrades in the past few months so I thought it was due to that! I was even tempted to call them up to ask why their network is so ****** all the time :P I'm pleased that it was just an issue with my phone, but it's also slightly annoyed at the same time haha
  • I have never had WiFi issues before the last couple of builds. My symptoms are the same: WiFi connected but saying that there is no internet connection.   Only re-starting fixes it.  :-(
  • Good for them
  • You too if you pick up one of these awesome devices! :D
  • Downloading together with the new build :-)
  • Thank you Microsoft for Double Tap To Wake.
  • Hope the Bluetooth fixes help Band 2 connectivity - notifications, keyboard, working with headsets, etc.
  • Amen, brother (lama)!
  • Nope, not with me I'm afraid. So frustrating
  • Still overheating when using Edge?
  • Hasn't for months now.
  • Until with the last build again
  • Yesssss ...installing on 950DS :) - Germany
  • ATT is downloading 14383.0 this morning.  Fast Ring.  Hope its the same stuff, different build.
  • That's the new Insider OS.  These fixes/features are firmware related.  Prolly'll have ta wait a few days on AT&T......"few days"...lol
  • Microsofts 10 days and AT&Ts 10 days are 2 totally different time lines. I have an AT&T 950 and I am expecting it to take more like 100 days to see Microsofts firmware update to drop from AT&T.
  • When will the unlocked LUMIA830 is getting a FW update which was released back in Feb 2016 on AT&T LUMIA830 only?
  • The unlocked Lumia 830 doesn't need that firmware. The ATT Lumia 830 was released with a crippled version of Lumia Denim and that firmware update was just bringing it up to date. Only the ATT version will get it. Posted via the Windows Central App for Android
  • LOL, genius !
  • DAMN!  
  • Hope AT&T move fast on double tap to wake feature, because I missed this so much from my 1520.
  • I miss the "Hey Cortana" feature from 1520.. You'd think 950/950 xl would have it...
  • 950/xl has had Hey Cortana since day one....
  • Don't tell him...
  • I've had my L950 over 7 month now and hey still not working
    Ms are are looking into it
  • Ummmmm it does
  • It does and u can just say Cortana. Do a search in this app for Cortana on l950 settings and there is a how to to enable it. It's not in the same place as the 1520 but it is more reliable and better. Infant I think sometimes it knows my pc or Xbox are around and ignores me infavor of those but only sometimes....one can hope.
  • It does have it and has for quite a while now. Open Cortana and go to the hamburger menu, settings to set it up.
  • Ermmm it has for a hell of a long time now...
  • Ermmm it has for a hell of a long time now...
  • You never looked it up, huh...
  • 1520 has it already. 
  • I saw WiFi in the title and I immediately thought WiFi calling. Well shucks....
  • That would make too much sense...
  • Well, maybe this is operator depends as I have been using wifi calling on my L950XL since day one (EE UK).
    In the settings->network->mobile & Sim->Sim Settings-> WiFi calling...
    When I am out of mobile signal, my calls are connected via wifi (a small phone icon appears on bottom left pf the wifi signal icon).
  • Ah, I completely forgot that EE UK has it! We're not so lucky here in the US unless you get an AT&T branded 950.
  • Firmware for unlocked Nokia Lumia 730 please !?
  • I would like to super size my meal please.
  • What are you hoping from the firmware...? :/
  • There is still issues with GPS. Location point doesn't move when I am in moving vehicles.
    For camera, there is issue with post processing. Images are little yellowish washed.
  • I don't think it needs anything
  • Does glance work on any version of Windows 10 Mobile? I'm still on WP 8.1 and I'm curious. I use double tap to wake and glance all the time.
  • It works on all versions. If your phone supports it Glance is there. It actually upgraded the Glance Screen on my Lumia 640. Posted via the Windows Central App for Android
  • Sure, it's been there since day 1 on 950 and XL.
  • Yes, but the peak mode is gone.
  • Peek mode where it turns on if you wave your hand over the sensor/take it out of your pocket? It's still there just might not be called peek any more
  • It woks fine, I have ser to the 5 mins, then gestures brings glace back up, turns off in pocket etc too, perfect
  • Yeah it is there, but it will ALWAYS be on when charging if you are on a recent Insider build. As a result, I've turned off Glance entirely...
  • This. And as a "bonus" the clock isn't moving across the display. A perfect combination for OLEDs.. Display burn in, you're welcome!
  • not true... mine moves all the time... just the first few minutes it wont move and then it does... give it a few minutes.
  • Are you on fast ring? Because this bug is only on redstone.
    Nevertheless, I know that on TH2 it takes around 15min to start moving, but here on RS I gave it more like an hour and it still didn't move.
  • On my 950XL there is an option to turn Glance off whne charging.  Extras-->Glance screen-->Turn off Always show glance screen when charging.  It looks like the default is turned on.
  • By your "extras>glance" I'm assuming you are on Production ring. The issue is present on Redstone build.
  • Hasn't hit my 950XL CV here in the UK yet... hope it does soon, double tap to wake is a great feature. Disabled it on my 1020 because of battery life, interested in testing how it affects the XL and whether I can keep it on this time.
  • Tap to wake up will be nice. I love that feature on other phones. I haven't had too many problems with my phone sense the last major update. My phone does turn on every now and then trying to find me "Hello" without me turning it on. Constantly locks
  • How about wifi fix for other older phones? It's affecting all kinds of phones according to the bug thread. They all need FW update?
  • This firmware is only for the 950 series devices. Other phone won't get this update
  • I know this update is for the 950. I'm just saying it's more wide spread and other phones need this fix also. I thought it would be a single OS update but looks like they all need a separate FW update, which may explain why it took so long.
  • Lumia 650? We want double tap to wake... My old 80$ lumia 435 had it :(
  • This! I want that too!
  • Yes!  Double tap and Wifi fix for 650 please
  • Nice, hope we get it soon
  • Still waiting in line.... Lumia 650 dual-sim
  • Lumia 650 single-sim needs that too!
  • I was literally sitting here at work and scream out "YES ... ******* YES!" The double tab to wake is one of the features from my L1020 that I missed the most since moving on to the 950XL. I am so in joy right now! :)
  • Yes!!
  • Can't wait to get tap to wake as I've never got hey Cortana to work.
    So if I need to open phone whilst driving I have to push side button to open lock screen
  • Ya "Hey Cortana" works once for every 15-20 attempts.
  • WhatsApp didn't open on the 950 win 10 build...is it fixed?
  • Works for me
  • Redstone build on the bloody 920...does whatsapp work?
  • Not sure about the 920, but don't see why not. It works on 435, 1020, 930 and 950 for me
  • It does guess im retrying that..
  • How did u get Redstone on the lumia 920? Posted via the Windows Central App for Android
  • ditto, i'd love to get redstone onto my 920 that my mum uses, thought it was imposible??
  • When in my Icon?
  • I give up. When are you in your Icon?
  • I haven't yet got Windows Phone MICROSOFTMDG-update​ in the UK, but I am currently downloading 10.0.14383.0
  • I had a MICROSOFTMDG update yesterday but dont have tap to wake
  • under Settings > Extra > Touch?
  • Slightly related - I do not see the option to display an image on the glance screen under Extras. Was this removed?
  • I believe that is available in redstone.
  • I have an option to enable background image under glance screen settings. either black and white or colors. It uses the background from lock screen.
  • I have usa version unlocked 950xl. Didn't get any update
  • Me neither
  • usa seems to be running behind everyone else for this update for some reason. Although that has kept the "why usa first" whiners somewhat muted
  • Canada has been skipped as well...
  • And a few other countries as well. It seems weird with the way it's rolling out, but I'm patiently waiting my turn to get the new firmware :)     Can't wait to have DttW back!
  • Is this the same firmware update that was available on the windows recovery tool a few weeks ago?
  • No it there was a new one last weekend in WRT with DTTW.
  • Anyone noted anything other than listed changes.. M just downloading now :)
  • My 950 XL single SIM (production build) feels somewhat snappier, especially the screen rotation.
  • No update on my factory unlocked 950XL yet. Not interested in double-tap to wake as it tends to turn on in my pocket and start pocket dialing/texting WAY to much, but I am interested in all the other features I did and didn't know were coming!
  • Not the case at all
  • Double Tap to Wake Up uses the proximity sensor to not wake up in your pocket...
  • Bluetooth got worse foe me
  • Thank you MS for double tap to wake. Though, I dont have this yet on my phone, happy to learn that this feature is back on 950 series.  Now if you could, please release 950 and 950 XL for T-mobile with Band 12 and WiFi calling support
  • It has Band 12...
  • I have wifi calling since day one on my 950XL (EE UK).
  • Is there any link to which device are receiving this update? Checked both phones OTA and not update.... not ready for wdrt yet though!  
  • I don't whine much, but now I can admit to missing dttw from the day of launch. Now I need to retrain myself for that glorious feature. :)
  • You don't need to retrain yourself... it's easily adaptive and highly addictive feature!!!
  • Yes, love double tap
  • To me the phone is also a lot more responsive and on T-Mobile NL also have the 4G+ logo now :) . Tap to wake works fine. Missed it a lot from my 930.
  • Us dual sim unlocked....still waiting. Ud think that would be first.
  • It is my belief that the wifi bug had performance impact also even when you don't quite get disconnected. My 950 wifi can be very slow when cellular data is also enabled.
  • And nothing for video driver problem  ?
  • Here in Peru, updating!
  • Updated but no double tap to wake on 950
  • You need to enable it in touch settings
  • Cool I just checked in lock screen similar to 730.. Now i got it thanks
  • Not yet for 950XL dual-sim US unlocked
  • On a 950XL unlocked in San Jose, CA. The new firmware does not show up for me. I already updated to today's new OS build.
  • I did not know the updates are city or state-specific now.
  • Will we ever get firmware update for Lumia icon? Man, that flashing, graded and tinted display after boot up pisses me of so much...
  • I am running the build number 10586.420 and currently getting the firmware.
  • Downloading in Austria...
    (unlocked Lumia 950 XL Single SIM)
    UPDATE: All went smooth. Double-tap-to-wake is just great! Thanks MS!
  • I'm in Canberra and WDRT tells me 01078.00038.16082.36022 is the latest. Hopefully soon. Telstra supplied.
  • Have anyone see the double tab?
    I just update my 950, but I'm missing the double tap.
  • It's in the 'touch' menu in settings, first switch...
  • hello. have any of you experienced bluetooth issues when playing iheartradio? when i connect to my car radio this app will play music then randomly stop for a few minutes, then play music again then randomly stop. hopefully this firmware update will fix that if its not iheartradios fault.
  • Got it on my unlocked Hong Kong version 950 XL in US. Awesome to have double tap to wake back. Thanks Microsoft.
  • Up and running... Double tap to wake is smoooth..L950 XL.
    By the way the Phone is not heating even during updates since last 2-3 builds and im lovin it more and more ;)
  • Nothing on ATT USA yet as Dan mentioned.
  • Awesome!!! Downloading it now
  • "...improved Auto-focus..." I hope the update is a good one. The terrible, hyperactive autofocus is my #1 complaint about my 950XL. It ruins a really nice camera. #2 is the broken headphone jack drivers. Requires a restart to get audio to stop cutting out once/sec. most times. Let's hope this fixes that: "Audio quality improvements..."
  • got it!!
  • Hopefully this fixes the camera issues I've been having on the last few builds. After taking a few pictures the camera button becomes extremely laggy, taking up to several seconds to take a picture. The front facing camera often fails to load, popping up with an error that is only fixed by a restart. It's kinda embarrassing to get everyone together for a selfie to find out that your camera is broken.
  • Updated but no double tap function enabled. Also 10.14383 is olling now to insider fast ring.
  • Reply to My self. It works after restart.
  • Pokemon GO for Windows 10 platform. Please sign the petition, thanks https://www.change.org/p/nintendo-the-pokemon-company-the-pokemon-compan...
  • Let's not and say we did...
  • Why talk about "more" and when people are actually trying to do more you want "less". Stop asking for cake and refuse to eat it.
  • Can someone how to turn on double tap in Lumia 950?
  • Settings/Extras/Touch
  • I wonder if my AT&T-branded and unlocked 950 serviced by T-Mobile will get the firmware update, too. The current firmware revision is 01078.00038.16025.39033.  
  • When AT&T approve it, it will.
  • Probably not because the device is still flagged as the at&t variant. Unfortunately there is no way to de-brand the at&t 950. On the 920 you could flash a rogers rom and it would allow the direct updates instead of waiting for at&t.
  • Thanks for the info. At least there's hope that down the road it will get the update from AT&T even though I'm no longer an AT&T customer.
  • I have a MS Store issued dual-SIM 950 unlocked on USA T-Mobile. As of today 7/12 still no joy..
  • Welcome to north America family!
  • Same here have you got it yet 7/18/ no go on my end.
  • How to turn on double tap on Lumia 950: Settings - Extras - Touch - and the first check box :)
  • Thanks man, I was looking for the settings to activate the double tape
  • Double Tape is a different feature.
  • Careful if you turn it on. Disabling usually requires a restart. Otherwise it tends to stick.
  • OMG, I see what you did there, got a good laugh too, hahahaha....
  • Awsome! Thanks! (But it should be enabled by default in my humble opinion)
  • Enabling it will reduce battery life so that would be why it's not enabled by default.
  • DTTW reduces battery life from the moment you turn it on or when you actually get to use it?  
  • Not too bad.
  • When you turn it on because it has to be using power in order to detect a double-tap.
  • I hope the 650 will eventually get DDTW. The 640 has it. We can only hope.
  • Mine had it. Now it only works when I hold my finger over the sensor.
  • finally, than you Microsoft:)
  • Got the new build and MICROSOFTMDG update downloading on my unlocked 950 XL running on AT&T.
  • Same but don't...
  • Through what magic were you able to do this?   
  • Dual sim?
  • Obviously you bought an import, not the official US version.
  • Double tap not working properly on my device Lumia 950DS, tempered glass applied
  • You have to turn it on...
  • Where is the setting located?
  • Goto settings, extras and then touch.   I did this and it's on but its still not working for me...do you have to be on redstone?
  • @sadude69 think you have to restart your phone after turning it on
  • Yeah I did that but it seems like it is not like before.  I have to really tap the screen to make it wake up
  • Hopefully it'll also address the dreaded "No Internet access" WiFi problem...
  • Yes! Its working on my XL
  • Sorry if this is a novice question but if I'm running an unlocked 950XL on at&t do I wait for the at&t firmware update or do I get the Microsoft ota update? Thanks.
  • Only AT&T branded phones will get the AT&T specific version of the firmware, and AT&T does not have a branded 950XL. Your unbranded/unlocked XL will get the Microsoft generic firmware specific to your model and region. All flavors will be available OTA.
  • So no one in US with Dual Sim 950 or 950XL is getting it? I would flash my phone to get it if it was in the device recovery app. Hate waiting for this.
  • Best news I've read hear in a recent while. With DTtW, 950/950XL is about 90% on the way to being the "flagship" it should of been on release day.
  • can it sync with my gear s2 watch? or like.... any other smartwatch?  no?  kbye
  • You should have bought a better watch!
  • My 950 seems to do OK with my Garmin forerunner 235, the Garmin app syncs all fitness data and i get notifications for emails, texts and calls.
  • Yesssssss
  • Just downloaded on my Lumia 950XL
  • Camera update! Can't wait to install.
  • Awesome! Already rocking it and it's great
  • Updated, double tap to wake is working fine
  • Where r u
  • 950XL DUAL SIM USA EAST COAST...No new firmware yet.  bummer.  Getting kind of addicted to all these updates.
  • canada 950XL dual sim is a no no
  • Same here, we're always left behind :(. Maybe in a couple days it will show up. Fingers corossed.
  • Still waiting 950 UK (O2)
  • Same
  • Same again, and still no charge icon on glance screen! D'oh.
  • Yes, it works on my Lumia 950. Love it!!
  • It seems this finally fixed the remaining black area under the number pad when unlocking via pin. Yay!
  • That is amazing.
    Well it's a suggestion for future feature for windows mobile.
    1. We have iris scanner to unlock the device.
    2. We have figure print scanner too provided by various OEM for their products too.
    3. We have rich double tap to wake the phone.
    4. On screen back, window and search(Cortana) key The take away from all of these features, is if we can illuminate the physical power button and use those above mentioned features for unlocking, hard reset and soft reset the devise.
    Hope we can build certain tweaks and tricks to write the code for that in future would be awesome. Not because we compete others but it is to see if we can advance with the technology to stand out.
  • 1. Already exists in WIndows Hello.  It works very well on my 950XL 2. Why when you have Windows Hello? 3. exists in today's firmware update 4. Why is a button needed when "Hey Cortana" gets you to Cortana without the need for a physical button?
  • #2) This one should be included in the Anniversary Update. The HP Elite X3 has both, so it will need to be enabled for the launch, which should be within a month or so.
  • Unlocked lumia 950, no update
  • Live on CV in Sweden. :)
  • Got the update, but not the double tap to wake on my 950 yet. Anyone in South Africa get it yet?
  • check under setting extras and touch. I havent received the update though also from South Africa.  
  • And no double tap to wake on lumia 550?
  • Got used to it on my 520
  • I was kinda hoping that the 650 was included in this. Double tap the nav bar to turn off the screen is a cool as it gets lol
  • OMG finally!!!!!!!!!
  • Got the update and "tap to wake" works on my 950xl.
    Dallas, Texas Posted via the Windows Central App for Android
  • Nice. I haven't received it yet and I'm in Dallas, Texas too.
  • Who is your carrier? I've got an unlocked 950XL DS and I'm using T-Mobile, also in Dallas.
  • Bet yours is imported, not US variant.
  • anyone from Canada get the update yet?
    Not for me.
  • Nothing for me yet either, unlocked 950 in Canada.
  • Trump is blocking the update.
  • Then he bust be blocking it for the US as well as thier Unlocked, purchsed from Microsoft US are not getting the update either...
  • Yesss!!! Really missed double tap to wake when I upgraded from 830 to 950.
  • 35015 here but no double tap to wake (Lumia 950). :( Anything particular needed to enable it?
  • Got it on L950XL DS unlocked in Ukraine.
    One question: It is possible to trigger it when phone is in jeans pocket?
  • Had a1020 for two years and never had a problem in bags pockets or anything
  • Thanks. I hope there wouldn't be problems with typed long numbers on Emergency Call screen
  • Installing! I bought my Lumia 950 XL from Brussel, but I live in Bulgaria, so my region is Bulgaria. I'm getting the update, and I'm really happy about that feature. I was missing it from my previous Lumia 930. I'm very happy, good job Microsoft, don't stop working on windows 10 mobile, it's great OS! I support you every day!
  • In Germany it is also available: good thing!
  • Got it on Lumia 950xl dual sim in Greece. It's so nice.
  • Isn't Greece bankrupt? Are you the only one with a cell phone plan?
  • Haha yes, but even bankrupt, we have more than you have!!!
  • Oh....oooookkkkaaaaaayyyy.
  • Is this for fast ring only because I have not seen the update on my production 950 XL? from LA.
  • Did you read the article? Quote: "However, this will be a rolling update (our AT&T Lumia 950 is not seeing it) so not all available devices will receive it today."
  • Lumia 1520 forever.
  • Working also for Cosmote - Greece 950
  • Come on USA!!! Lets get that slow, expensive bandwidth working here... :)
  • I got the firmware through the Windows Device Recovery Tool yesterday on my EE branded 950 XL. It does not seemed to have fixed some Bluetooth connectivity issues I have been having prior to the firmware update.
  • Never know EE ever released the 950xl only way I could get mine was through cpw!
  • You could get the 950XL as a business customer. I got mine online (cheaper than EE anyway and fully unlocked).
  • This is good!!
  • why is the U.S variant ALWAYS the last to get these updates and goodies?!!!! WHY?!! can't wait to get this DTTW!
  • Only AT&T is slow. Unlocked devices get it.
  • Not yet they don't.
  • I got my 950XL DS from the Microsoft store.  Shouldn't that be unlocked?  I am using it on AT&T and still waiting on the update.
  • i always thought it was strange that OEMs don't activate this feature ... the SD 410/210 and newer SoCs all have that feature available.
  • Still no word on the slightly less popular "heptuple-tap to launch OneNote and set reminder to buy more kale?"
  • Yes, even my old flip phone had that feature. Come on MS!
  • I prefer to half touch to wake, personally. I DON'T HAVE TIME FOR TWO TAPS!
  • Thank You Thank You Thank You Microsoft, hopefully this will fix my Cellular single drop on AT&T that happens about 3 -5 times a week!  I really really love this phone but the dropping of my cellular single  and missing phone calls and text messages was getting enough that i was ready to give it up. Now if they can only fix the battery drain we will be golden!
  • I have an unlocked international single sim 950 XL and received the firmware update this afternoon. I'm on T-Mobile in USA. Enable it by going to Settings -> Extras -> Touch.
  • No Firmware update here in Seattle yet for the Dual SIM 950 XL
  • Don't overdo it man !! Haha.
  • Are updates city-specific now?
  • LOL..
  • I'm not get it how can I get it?
  • Now only thing i can ask for is the link of that wallpaper.
  • RM-1116_15285 / 15285.033372 & RM-1118_15358 / 15358.031DB0 No update yet!
  • I had disabled my "Hey Cortana" option because it was causing bad voice quality on the other end.  I wonder if this update fixes that.
  • I am in Thailand, set my region to US and I got the firmware update and latest Fast Ring build.
  • "New features include the return of double tap to wake"...what?  They took it away and now people should be happy they gave it back?  Bow to the all powerful Microshaft gods.  Tap to wake has never gone away on my 920.  :)
  • Has anyone else been experiencing a crazy amount of random reboots and power failures with Lumia 950xl? Hoping this may also address that...
  • Freezing and rebooting yes on L950
  • Sent my 950 back for them to fix. First attempt they just did a software "upgrade". Second time sent back replaced the board. Third i requested new device. Experienced less random reboots however it still happened. Updated to insider slow ring and has been a bit better since. Maybe experiencing them every 3-4 days now.
  • I haven't.  I have the release version of the software for the 950XL not any insider builds.  Mine hasn't shutdown or frozen at all.  I see far more quirks on my Lumia Icon that I have on the 950XL.
  • when in L550?
  • Hope they release a new firmware for the 650 too. It also has wifi disconnecting issue and i miss the double tap to wake so much.
  • Agreed !! I don't have wifi issues. But double tap would be appreciated.
  • I wish they show the Lumia 650 some love too. :(
  • Anyone got it for l730?
  • 950XL here middle east, but local US, not update still
  • No sign on my 950xl on EE UK, I use Wi-Fi calling so the Wi-Fi fix would be great and loved tap to wake and Bluetooth has never been the same in the car always lagging. Hopefully sooner of these issues will go away just a shame to know it's out their but you don't have it yet.
  • No update yet 950xl Ohio, USA
  • Oh, updates are state-specific now?
  • Latest build sucks.. 10586.420. Not able to connect hotspot in my lumia 540
  • Yes, it's back. Double tap to wake.
  • F***CK yeah, downloading now!
  • Anyone have problems using DTTW with screen protector? Double tap to sleep and zoom works but not wake. :(
  • Nvm, got it working after a reboot. It actually seems to wake up more consistantly with a screen protector.
  • Done, I've got it
  • not yet South Africa
  • Anyone in Australia got it yet?
  • still waiting here..
  • Still waiting
  • Nothing yet for my 950 XL or my boss's 950. I've checked WDRT and it's showing the latest firmware as being 01078.00038 rather than 01078.00053 for my phone. How about you?
  • I just checked LumiaFirmware.com and it shows that the new firmware is now available for my unlocked 950 XL in Australia and my boss's 950. I connected my phone to the Windows Device Recovery Tool and sure enough, there it was. Still no OTA update available though, so hopefully that part won't take too long, as I'm not willing to hard reset my phone right now. Every time I do that I have to start Lara Croft: Relic Run all over again.  I'm into the Mountain Pass section now so I'm not going to start over for an update that will arrive soon anyway.
  • Hope double tap will come to Lumia 650 too. :))
  • Also got it yesterday (08.07.2016) - Latvia.
  • 49% downloading.. India
  • No update here .. United Arab Emirates .. 950XL
  • Double tap! Woohoo!! :))))))
  • Im in South Africa.Nothing yet.
  • Is jy op vodacom my ou? Ek by hulle en nog F-kol! Daai update is so elusive soos bier in bloemiste, bra!
  • Dual sim 950xl in the US and nothing :(
  • Installing now on Luia 950 (no XL, Single SIM), unlocked, bought via t-mobile Germany
  • If they can do this, give me 'Gestures Beta' for WM10
  • someone needs to double-tap AT&T
  • Nice!  Rule #2.
  • Nothing here for me on UK unlocked 950XL ?
  • I want that wallpaper. So.Bad.
  • here ya go  http://www.nasa.gov/sites/default/files/thumbnails/image/15766576390_99849c8ca3_o.jpg
  • I am installing it now...I have a 950XL single sim variant
  • USA/Unlocked/Lumia 950 XL/Dual Sim/AT&T Sim/ NO update available.
  • No update yet, 950 + 950XL, New York (T-mobile).
  • How to enable double tap to wake in 950 xl. I cant find it.
  • Trying to figure it out myself
  • Slap the back of the phone three times.
  • It is at the bottom of the lock screen settings.
  • Downloading it now! The cellular and bluetooth fixes are welcomed!
  • How is it that the carriers control the FW, especially if on an unlocked Insider phone?  Ex:  What if I were not even using my phone for cellular, only for WiFi, so I had no SIM.  Does that mean I could never get the new FW?  (I'm in the US ATT unlocked BTW, but I wonder about this).  Thanks.
  •  Agreed and in same boat and I have no clue why Also there should be a mandatory rule that you cannot post "got it" unless you give country and phone variant     LOL :)  ​
  • That'd just make me more jealous.  haha
  • An unbranded unlocked phone is NOT tied to the carrier you are using for update elegibility. However, if you purchase a carrier branded phone and then later get it unlocked it will be forever tied to that carrier for update approvals because the underlying model number has not changed. MS targets the updates to make, model, country variant, carrier/unbranded designations. The fact that the North American variant unbranded dual SIM Lumia 950/XL devices have not received the firmware yet has nothing to do with a carrier, just Microsoft's rollout cadence.
  • Thanks for clarifying.  I misunderstood the WC article. 
  • Nothing here for unlocked 950xl in US.
  • I got the update but the double tap to wake doesn't seem to work. Unlocked German 950xl
  • Do you see the option toggle in Extras | Touch? If not then it hasn't been made available yet.
  • Still nothing available on L950 on O2 in U.K
  • USA East Coast, Lumia 950 unlocked. Still nothing...
  • Oh are updates coastal-specific now?
  • Nothing yet for west coast USA. Sad, was looking forward to this update.
  • Hadn't realized hw/sw updates are coastal-specific now.
  • It could be the fifth of forever before ATT releases this, and it is ever thus to deadbeats.  A few firmware releases back, there was a walk-through to force firmware updating.  I haven't tried it myself but I'm tempted.   http://forums.windowscentral.com/microsoft-lumia-950-xl/411084-tired-wai...  
  • Nothing here yet on Virgin (EE) in the UK on 950xl......
  • No firmware update available yet on o2 sim free.
  • About time. Idiotic in my opinion that the devices DIDN'T come with tap to wake originally. #TeamLumia 950 XL
  • I hope it fixes the battery drainage problem as well, after fully charged  going to the park, coming home and checking the phone, it showed 25% battery remaining. I may be forced to get a SIM for my Nokia 520 and use it for a main phone.
  • Hi guys, This is a petition for Pokemon GO : https://www.change.org/p/nintendo-the-pokemon-company-the-pokemon-compan...
  • ^^^ dude no one cares about pokemon! get a life OK my phone keeps trying to get the update but it keeps failing... going to reboot and try again... this is a 950XL DS U.S. version   EDIT: CRAP! now after the reboot it says my phone is upto date! grrrrrr
  • That's what you get for saying nobody cares about pokemon.
  • First thing I noticed: My 950 doesn't heat up anymore while charging. Also charging felt faster!
  • Still nothing on my factory unlocked 950XL DS in Dallas, Texas. Trying to be patient....
  • Check Touch in settings, need to turn on
  • I'm not showing the update is even available.
  • If only you lived in Houston. Then you'd have it.
  • I just drove through Houston on the way to Dallas connected to the AT&T on 950 XL DS. No, it isn't a given because I didn't get it.
  • Try driving to Austin.
  • Got it through WDRT South Africa
  • 950 XL DS ... Still nothing... San Antonio TX
  • Still waiting for firmware update in the Uk... Nothing on EE, 950XL unlocked. Hopefully soon... The Wifi "No internet" is a pain...
  • Lumia 950xl RM-1116_15285 / 15285.033372 Firmware update available on WDRT
  • If only you lived in Austin. Then you'd have it.
  • Live in CA, Own 950 XL unlocked on ATT. Tried to update via WDRT. Bricked phone. Currently attempting to restore.  
  • Nope update on Lumia 950 XL Canada dual sim
  • 950 xl ATT, unlocked in California....still nothing
  • 950 DS NAM Var CalExit still Nada!
    Does rollout stop on weekends?
  • Wow about time! LOL I just checked my phone but all I see is an update to build 14383.0
    I'll let that install then try again.
  • I cant find the settings. It says double to tap navigation to turn off screen. No double tap to wake. Firmware 35013. Please suggest.
  • you can find it under All settings-extras-touch
  • Thanks a ton
  • Good news. DIdn't know those two phones didn't have that feature. My 640 does. Such a good feature.
  • Yeah , double tap working :) 
  • EE UK 950 Still no DTTW unsmiley face
  • BT Mobile UK no update yet
  • I have a lumia 950xl purchased from Microsoft uk with o2 sim no update
  • Still awaiting for mine.. 950XL DS.
  • Slovakia, update installed and double tap to wake is working now. Yes!!!!!
  • This is an important firmware update for 950 & 950 xl users. Is it too much to ask for some simple time frame within which the update will be rolled out? The usual vague "wait till it reaches your servers" seems quite inadequate, especially since we don't know if anything will be pushed out over the weekend.
  • No update here either. German Lumia 950 unlocked, Vodafone prepaid.
  • It appears that rollout got stuck in Europe and Asia because of the weekend. So for those anxious 950 & 950xl owners in north America don't expect the firmware till mid next week!
  • Still waiting in the UK on EE.
  • Just updated mine on EE in UK. But build shows as 01078.00038.16082.36007!?
  • Gotta wait till mid next week in the U.S. That sucks!
  • Ya know I haven't used double tap in forever. Fingerprint scanner is so fast. Now I do use double tap to shut it off occasionally. Posted via the Windows Central App for Android
  • What windows phone has a fingerprint scanner??
  • next week ? really?
  • Hmm Lumia 950. Located in Czech Republic with Vodafone and still no update for this firmware. I am still on 01078.00038.16025.39016
  • Expect it tomorrow....
  • Thx, may I know your source of this information?
  • Magic 8 Ball
  • I just called AT&T busines support about the lack of LTE and visual voicemail on my Lumia 950 XL DS. I've never had LTE, but I did used to have visual voicemail. He thinks that the problem described in this article (http://www.windowscentral.com/why-no-lte-att-lumia-950-xl) might be the problem and he advised me to go to the AT&T store to get a dummy IMEI number. He thinks it might fix both. I wonder if it's a problem for the firmware update too.  
  • ATT needs its own IMEI numbers for visual voice mail and LTE. one you get one, you should have both
  • How to find out if your Lumia 950XL already has this MICROSOFTMDG update ?
  • Settings>System>About>more info and simply compare your firmware build with the one in this article.
  • Go to Settings | Extras | Touch You'll see a DTtW option available if you got the latest firmware. Depends on what country you're in... Roll out is slow.
  • Slow!! think slugs move faster by way ever one is saying they not received it
  • Very slow, I have unlocked 950 xl UK and I still haven't received the update
  • So not I'm the only one who's still waiting...
  • Nope, it would the majority outside of the US still don't have it
  • Unlocked 950XL dual sim here in Canada and still no update either
  • I guess battery draw went up with this update. The screen needs to "always listening" for input, i guess. Posted via the Windows Central App for Android
  • Finally!!!!
    http://i.memeful.com/media/post/BRkm0vw_700wa_0.gif
  • You know, I'd like to see a WindowsCentral article on how propagation of updates works in MS server architecture. Something that explains all the steps from when someone in Redmond marks something for push and how it gets to the end user. Then people can stop complaining about why an update isn't world wide instantly.
  • Sounds like a really good idea for an article.
  • Thanks! I really hope now that someone reads these comments lol!
  • Did anyone else still not get this in the US?
  • I haven't seen it on my 950XL DS unlocked or my 950 DS unlocked.  One is connected to Conjsumer Cellular (ATT) the other doesn't have a sim in it and us in insider preview fast.
  • Same.... and sigh.  Still waiting.  950XL DS on AT&T Dallas.
  • Not yet in southeastern Colorado. Unlocked 950XL
  • Still don't have it in US. Unlocked 950XL DS.
  • Just checked my 950XL DS unlocked. Nada.
  • Same. Att ds 950xl and 950 bot sim in on att and no update. My mother in laws 950, AT&T Branded unit does have its up.
  • No sign of an OTA update for my unlocked 950 XL or my boss's unlocked 950 here in Australia. That's fine as I understand that the rollout is staggered but, worryingly, it doesn't look like it's available via WDRT either, assuming that the version number must begin with 01078.00053. I wonder whether that means that it doesn't even exist for our phones yet, let alone being ready to roll out. Has anyone else received the update OTA without it showing in WDRT?
  • The new firmware is now showing in WDRT but no OTA update yet. Hopefully that part won't take too long.
  • Still no update in Dallas, TX on my Factory UNLOCKED 950XL DS. Build 14385
  • Just got update for Lumia 950 in UK on EE. Can't find setting for double tap to wake?!
  • Settings>Extra>Touch
  • Settings>Extras>Touch
  • Be aware that there is a 10.0.10586.494 build update happening today to all Win10 devices on the standard release. This is not the firmware update. That will come gradually over the next week or so. Patience!
  • I don't have it yet, Ohio, Home of the NBA Champions, my Cleveland Cavaliers!
  • Still waiting. On a factory unlocked 950 in U.S. on the release preview ring for insider builds. Did just get 10.0.10586.494 though, maybe it's necessary for the new firmware to show up?
  • Received a update to my 950xl and wife's 950 expecting double tap here in US but still on 00038.16025.. Have no idea what was updated. No .16236 what a waste of our gears spinning.
  • Am I the only UK resident who's still waiting for this update??? It is just annoying...
  • ad it for weeks now and it works like crap really. It works like 40% of the time and sometimes you have to tap 2, 3, 4 times, sometimes slow sometimes fast...!! This is definitely at patch. The phone was never built for this it is nothing like on the 920.  
  • Use tempered glass protector. It improved my double tap tremendously for some reason.
  • For those with AT&T is there a work around so we might get the firmware update? Some updates by pass the provider, can the firmware do it?  
  • In the us unlock 950xl ds and nothing yet
  • So I decided to just backup my phone and use WDRT to get the new firmware. But guess what, for my US unbranded 950XL that I bought from MS, it does not show the new firmware in WDRT. WTF is actually going on with this firmware update and all the US unbranded phones MS sold to all of us?!
  • its "coming soon"!
  • So... Did Microsoft discover that too many users had issues with double-tap to wake working properly and silently pull the update? I don't recall a rollout taking this long to propagate to servers before.
  • yeah! this is taking ridiculously long to get out to us all... cmon MS this should have been on our phones DAY 1! and now it takes this long for us to finally get it and now we have to wait on this update... so close yet so far! frustrating to say the least
  • Hmm, I'm curious why people are complaining "where is my update"? Probably you guys forgot that you have a deal with M$ (and probably AT&T) - this explains everything... Listen, it's not an Apple or Google; did you forgot old WP7 times (or WP8.1 customers wait for W10M) and a looong-looooong waiting for the OS releases or radio updates?  So, it's very usual situation for MS; your opinion & resentment means NOTHING to M$... You have an only one option: wait, wait, wait... and be very happy if/when you finally receive this update.
  • Go play with your insecure data stealing lagdroid, scroogle is nothing but an advertising company.
  • Go cry for the lack of "Pokemon Go", stupid :) And yes, your are stupid cause you don't even know to whom you are replying, lamo.
  • stop with this stupid AT&T crap, firstly these are unbranded bought from MICROSOFT secondly alot of us aren't with AT&T and with other providers! and still we are waiting for this update! makes no sense to me why sooo long....
  • "why sooo long..." - 'cause it's miiii-croooo-sooooooft :D And miiii-croooo-sooooooft don't care about you! P.S. BTW, AT&T one of the worst companies in US at all! They take care only about profits; they'll be f&ck customers in case to get extra$$...
  • I'm willing to bet that there are many simple things that make no sense to you.
  • Nothing here in Ohio either.
  • Still not seeing it In the UK 950 XL unlocked giffgaff. Talk about slow :/
  • Still waiting in Connecticut.  L950XL DS unlocked.
  • Good to know it is still rolling out. I've been checking every day for the firmware update.
  • Still haven't got it in Ohio yet!☹
  • I can't beleive how long this is taking to get out.. Never seen a release take so long to get to us.... been a week already!
  • I can't beleive how long this is taking to get out.. Never seen a release take so long to get to us.... been a week already!
    You're kidding right, fw updates have always been ridiculously protracted, especially if they're big, like this one is; That goes well back to the Nokia days, & it's been explained multiple times why, it's lengthy/complicated, & there's multiple factors. People with unbranded/unlocked country_variants seem to be under the illusion that they'll get it amost instantly; No. It depends entirely on the base fw variant the phone uses, if it isn't a telco variant, then it doesn't need to be approved, which is why every year non-telco variants (Retail/CV etc) have been quicker to get fw updates. Some telco variants in some countries, can be quicker than some non-telco variants in others (or the same country), but on average non-telcos (esp. CV's) are quicker & rarely slower, & some CV's are much quicker than other CV's. An extra layer of complication creeps in if some of the changes in the update touch the 3G/4G radios (don't recall seeing that in the update notes, but some CV's e.g. HK have it already -so I don't think so); If that's the case, then non-telco updates can be held back just as long as telco ones. OR changes related to the radios could be omitted, so the remainder of the update can be pushed out, & a separate fw update pushed OTA later, after it's approved by all telcos. The latter is more likely nowadays...  
  • If only Microsoft would explain the difficulties as you just did, there'd be less angst. We can't assume that newer users would be aware of the background to this issue.
  • It's just as bad for Android handsets, worse in fact (with some exceptions), the only ODM with the clout to not be affected as badly, is Apple.
  • N.B. If you don't want to wait, & by your standards it's taking too long... Then find an optimal variant that already has it, & flash to it -problem solved. I've done it many times over the years, piss-easy to work out & do...
  • Will other Lumias (550 etc.) get the same update any time soon? I have issues with WiFi too and can use some double tap as well.. Thanks for any info.
  • I haven't received it yet, but hopefully the ringtone volume gets fixed soon, it goes only to 10, which on several occasions I missed calls and text messages, since I couldn't hear the phone., App and media goes up to 30, which should earual the ringtone volume. AT&T stopped selling the phone, checked with T-Mobile and the store didin't carry it either.
  • Hopefully the ringtone volume gets fixed as well, it now only goes to 10 which at times is low to hear an incoming calls or text.  The App and Media goes up to 30, which should be the same as the ringtone.  When waling at the park, with the phone in my pocket, I have missed calls and text, Even my dog, that walks with me, doesn't let me know it's ringing, and he has several times, yet missed some.  I haven't received the update yet, I'm with AT&T.
  • You do realise that having a larger number has zero effect on how loud it goes, right? The number simply indicates the number of steps between the nimimum and the maximum.  They could make it go up to 30 now but that would not mean it would be three times louder; just that there would be three times as many steps to get from minimum to the very same maximum we have now.
  • @John McIlhinney  dude that makes no sense whatsoever! what your describing is exactly how a volume meter works... higher the number, higher the volume. The way your phrasing it is like it's some sort of non effective volume meter just for show  
  • Spinal Tap proved that 11 is better.  Those rockers should make a mini-amp for our phones.
  • Why would anyone spend money on a obsolete phone 950/950xl, this is the last Lumia phone, the Microsoft Surface should be released within the next 60 days. The Windows 10 Mobile Operating System is still in the debugging phase. I upgraded my Nokia Lumia Icon to Windows 10 this week and am going to wait till Windows Surfate phone hits the market, from the photos I saw this would probably be the end of Microsoft in the smartphone Business for consumers, it seems like the Surface phone is more Business oriented.
  • MS already hinted earlier in the year (via various connected journos here & elsewhere) that the SP (or range or SP's) will be revealed ~April 2017, there's zero chance they'll be out in 60 days, where did you see these purported photos of it/them?
  • @Russell Ehrgood  just because YOU think it's obsolete doesnt make your statement true... I and others still think it will be current and keep using the device well into the coming days/months/years... also where do you get this 60 days? post proof of what you're talking about and back up your facts or just sound like you don't know anything and spouting disinformation...
  • Unlocked dual-SIM 950XL on Cricket here in LA. Still waiting...
  • Anyone got this firmware update in Australia yet? Still waiting... Telstra, unlocked 950...
  • LumiaFirmware.com says nothing for you yet. None of the AU 950s or 950XLs are showing a 00053​ version firmware yet.
  • I only got 10586.494 a few days ago... Optus, unlocked 950.
  • That's not really relevant. The OS builds and the firmware are not connected.
  • I call voodoo.
  • So it is July 16th and I am still waiting for this update on my unlocked 950xl on ATT that I bought at a Microsoft store. Anyone else having issues or suggestions.
  • *sigh* me too, this is getting ridiculous of how long this update it taking to get out to all our handsets...
  • Any idea about 950 xl CV KSA? I mean OTA...
  • Lumia 950 xl CV KSA. No firmware update yet.

  • The frustration is seeing carrier-tied devices getting quick updates, whilst MS delay SIM-free devices. In UK, all three carrier Lumia 950s are showing as updated on http://www.lumiafirmware.com/ser/RM-1104 but the CV version is still not updated. Waiting for carriers to schedule rollout? No.
  • Still nothing come on Ms!
  • I have the newest fast-ring build on my 950XL (dual sim in Austalia) and DTTW works well - thanks Microsoft. :-)
  • Still waiting in New Zealand. Am I the only one or is this a really sow rollout. My 950 is Australian.
  • I'm from Australia with my 950 on Optus, sadly still waiting also
  • ungh! I'm so sick of fumbling with my power button when driving to see whats playing or switch to the next music list.... where is the F***ing DTTW?!!!!
  • I feel your pain, buddy.  I had my 950XL DS in a waterproof bag while boating.  The seam of the plastic bag goes right over the power button so I had to wiggle the phone inside the bag to be able to reach the power button.  Meanwhile, my Lumia 640 lies dormant and has had this feature since the day I got it.
  • I still not have received the uddate, dispite am on last updated 1511 release
  • I feel like Dory waiting for these things, just keep waiting, just keep waiting.
  • Downloadinggg, Finalllyyyyy, Lumia 950XL DS EGYPT
  • No firmware update here in New York. No rush, it will come. What really concerns me is this continued app flight and the lack of advertising their phones. I NEVER see any ads about 950/950XL. Oh well, the surface phone will be here soon, <1 year to go. On a second note, the lastest update seems to working well, no heating issues, no battery drain and everything seems to working well and smooth. 950XL DS unlocked in New York.
  • Good news. 8 new updates have appeared on the lumiafirmware site today, 5 for the 950xl and 3 for the 950. They should be available via WDRT which will reset your phone. Otherwise, wait for OTA sometime "soon"
  • I still don't have this on my 950xl... Got tired of waiting for went on insider slow ring and still nothing :(
  • @robdmau This is a Firmware Update; completely independant of an OS software update as recieved on the preview rings. I too, am still wating for it on my AT&T 950.  
  • Well I'm about to install firmware of WDRT site.cant wait for over air
  • It took a long time via the WDRT, for me upwards of 2 hours, but I've finally received double tap to wake and restored my 950 XL from a backup. Remember to disable automatic backups once you're back on Threshold 10586.13 or your Redstone 14393 backup will be overwritten. From 10586.13 you have to update to 10586.494; thereafter you rejoin the Insider program fast ring to get back to 14393. Once there, reset your phone so you can access your last backup. Then you may want to sign back into the Insider program, fast ring preferably, to access some of the latest store updates. This is not for the faint hearted...
  • Are those of us using the unlocked 950XL NAM CV getting close to an OTA release? http://www.lumiafirmware.com/ser/RM-1116/guid/059X505 listed the latest FW today so crossing fingers. I'll check WDRT in the meantime as well.
  • It's anybody's guess how long OTA will take. That's why I went the WDRT route: painful but worth it.
  • Not sure if this means anything, but I wonder if those of us using the unlocked NAM CV 950XL are close to getting an OTA release of the firmware (within the next few days?). http://www.lumiafirmware.com/ser/RM-1116/guid/059X505 List of Firmware - Click to download 01078.00053.16236.35006 - 2016-07-20

  • Yep, the one you highlighted is the same one I updated.
  • Have a 950 XL and a 950; Both are updated but double tap parameter appears only on the 950 XL, not on 950. Any Idea ?
  • Just got the OTA on my 950XL Dual Sim US Version on ATT, 282.67 MB !!!!!!!!!!!!!!
  • getting mine right now on DS unlocked U.S. 950XL and it is 12 am here north America
  • OMG I'm so pissed! went through the bloody update and I don't have DTTW! it's not in settings> touch nor is it in personalization> lock screen! WTF man? was it just an OS update and not a FW update? but why an OS update today and not on patch tuesday?  
  • I first reported this to WinCentral yesterday morning on twitter when it hit the WDRT in the AM. I immediately installed the updated firmware, which rolled me back to 10586.494 build. I checked double tap to wake, and it didn't work (yes I enabled it and restarted). I then proceeded to enroll in Insiders to get back on the 14393 build, and it still didn't work once I updated. Still hasn't worked since then.
  • I am in California, unlocked 950xl dual SIM.  ATT is the carrier.  Connected my phone to WDRT and there was a new firmware update today .35006.  Backed up my phone, loaded the new firmware and I now have double tap to wake working.  Wahoo!  BTW - I am not fast ring.
  • Dami it AT&T branded 950 no success yet.....  
  • My AT&T 950 still have not received the firmware update...realling looking to get this double-tap to wakeup.
  • I like it! Does kill the battery faster though!
  • Works on my Verizon 735.
  • still have not gotten my update...any suggestions?
  • Just spoke to AT&T firmware release date is 8\24\16. Wondering if we are going to to be able to the install the Aniversary update without the firmware?
  • You must have special contacts at ATT because evertime I ask they say only the engienneers are the only ones who know and they can't contact them.
  • I got the firmware last week on my 950xl. Unfortunately, it's been hit or miss. Is anyone else's working about have the time? I have tapped the crap outta the phone even tapped it three or four double taps and nothing.
  • Still waiting for the firmware update on mine and the wife's unlocked dual-sim 950xls on AT&T.
  • Just woke up this morning to my phone prompting for the MICROSOFTMDG update, "restart required." Phone is updating now. Unlocked, dual SIM, 950XL in Los Angeles on Cricket.
  • Confirmed: Double-tap to wake is working. Camera focus is still not as good as my old 925, but is much improved over what it was before the update, less hyperactive. Oddly, the camera button no longer causes a vibrate when holding down to launch camera if already unlocked (I'm pretty sure it did this before).
  • My unbranded US 950XL DS RM-1116 just recieved it OTA.  Enjoy.
  • Update is now downloading to my unlocked 950xl (Canada)
  • I guess I just had to post here...now downloading the update on my 950xl.
  • I can confirm that, at least for now, I am able to respond to texts via my Band 2's keyboard.  Something that hasn't worked for weeks, despite reinstalls of the Microsoft health app.  Curious if the firmware update will improve the Blutooth connection with my Mitsubishi.  Until now, I've had pretty random luck with it reading texts and also occasional garbled sound.
  • Finally got the OTA update just now. Lumia 950 Dual Sim Unlocked, USA, East Coast.
  • OMG finally! updated and played my music in my car and DTTW is working excellent! so glad to have it back and not fumble with the power button when I wanna change to the next song or see what artist is playing....
  • I really like double tap... it makes me happy!!!  
  • Just got it!  950XL DS USA on AT&T.  Bluetooth phone conversations doesn't cut out.  DTTW is working perfectly.  Now that I have panoramic mode on the camera, I only need a few more apps and I'm set!  I have never seen a company work so hard and fast at making a product better than Microsoft on Windows 10. ... and to think... they said they weren't focusing on the mobile platform in 2016.  Can you imagine the possibilities if they did?  .. and spend money on advertising?
  • OTA update arrived today on my Dual SIM Lumia 950! Double tap to wake works perfectly.
  • where is panoramic settings on the camera? I cant find it....
  • There is none!
  • Finally got mine today.Unlocked 950 in th UK with EE. DTtW working well, and so far no WiFi dropouts at work so far which was becoming a problem. Firmware version is 01078.00053.16236.35017
  • updated latest firmware OTA non-insider build today on my 950xl. Double tap to wake NOT WORKING :(
  •  Anyone having issue unlocked 950 xl with latest firmware that is supposed to enable double tap to wake. I dont see any difference even after the update. so non-sense with double to wake.
  • OMG don't you know you have to ENABLE IT? 
  • Yay . It worked. After the Firmware update , GO TO SETTINGS, scroll all the way to 'Extras' >' Touch" > Turn on toggle for doube tap to wak :).
  • Seems faster.
  • Still waiting..... :(
    Nevermind, it's here!
  • What phone, carrier?
  • Still nothing for my ATT 950 :(
  • Same here.
  • Hopefully (fingers crossed-lol), when the AU update goes official on Aug 16th (Carrier approved updates) AT&T will update both OS and firmware!
  • 950XL Camera is so much faster now. Photos are pretty much instant, even in HDR mode. Although, HDR now disables flash for some reason.  
  • No update yet on AT&T!!! What's the holdup?!
  • All 10 people that wasted their money on these half-assed phones are thrilled.
  • Looking like christmas might get here quicker than DTTW on my unlocked UK L950xl....
  • Sods law as we say in the UK, despite checking daily, just after posting I find an update available with the WDRT.  Fingers crossed it might be with me soon...
