UK owners of the unlocked Lumia 950 XL phones from Microsoft are reporting they are getting an over-the-air firmware update that brings the "double tap to wake" feature to the Windows 10 Mobile phone.

Lumia 950xl

The firmware update was previously released for the phone in the U.S. and Australia, but is now making its way to the UK (via Reddit). Here is Microsoft's previously published change log for the update:

  • 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.

If you own a Lumia 950 XL in the UK and want to see if the firmware update is available, simply go into Settings > Update & security > Phone update and hit "Check for updates". If eligible you will see MICROSOFTMDG update.
