Microsoft reportedly working on Windows 10 Mobile upgrade advisor, remote authenticator

While Microsoft may have shut down a number of older apps over the past few months, the company is reportedly busy working on new ones for both Windows 10 and Windows 10 Mobile. Two sites reportedly have some inside info on three such apps, including one that has been designed to help Windows Phone 8.1 device owners upgrade to Windows 10 Mobile.

Windows 10 Mobile upgrade Advisor

WMPU has posted information on the upgrade advisor app, which has not officially been confirmed by Microsoft. Their story states that it has been created to inform Windows Phone 8.1 device owners if their smartphone can in fact be upgraded to Windows 10 Mobile. If it can, the app can also help with freeing up internal storage space so the upgrade can proceed.

Delivery app beta

Sister site has posted word on two more upcoming Microsoft-developed apps. One is designed to help track package deliveries, while the other is a remote PC authenticator. Here's the company's description for that latter app.

"The first step towards a world without passwords! After a quick Bluetooth sync, use this app to unlock your Windows 10 computer at work. Just open the app and tap on a nearby computer. Note: This app is still in beta. Future versions will include support for Microsoft account, a sign in solution for browsers and VPN. one-time passcode generation, and MFA approval through notifications."

Remote Authenticator

Keep in mind that all of these apps have not been officially confirmed by Microsoft as being in development. It's also possible that the company could decide not to release one or more of these apps to the public.
