New Lumia 950 and 950 XL firmware rolling out, along with Lumia 830 and LG Lancet
If you own a Lumia 950 or Lumia 950 XL and are also signed up to get Insider updates on the Production ring, you might see a firmware update rolling out. Microsoft has announced that the 1078.38.16025 update is currently going out in certain markets. It offers improvements in GPS reliability and call audio quality, along with stablity fixes for those phones.
In addition, Insider members in the U.S. who own the Lumia 830 on AT&T and the LG Lancet on Verizon will get their own firmware updates, with 2179.0.15455.24047 for the Lumia 830 and 820.10300.11.101 for the LG Lancet. These updates are for the devices if they are running Windows Phone 8.1. If they are running Windows 10 Mobile, Microsoft says:
Microsoft is making some changes in early March that will hopefully keep Insiders from having to "ring hop" to get the latest firmware updates on their phones:
- When available, the new firmware will be automatically delivered to your device
- Insiders will no longer need to switch to the Production ring to receive firmware updates
- This new firmware update pipeline will be completed in early March
- After this change, Insiders and Retail users will receive firmware updates at the same time, pending availability for a given make/model/variant
