Verizon is set to upgrade Lumia Icon to Windows 10 Mobile on June 23

For those on Verizon sticking with their almost 'classic' Lumia Icon we have some shows news: Verizon is set to update your phone starting tomorrow to Windows 10 Mobile. This follows the recent Windows 10 upgrade of the other Lumia gem the Lumia 735.

The news was spotted by Benjamin C. and it comes from Verizon's own Advanced Devices - Software Update page. The listing reveals the Lumia Icon's "last update" as June 23, 2016 (aka tomorrow). Clicking deeper into the history reveals all sorts of Windows 10 Mobile mentions.

Update: A Verizon support engineer also confirmed the news with us that the update is indeed happening tomorrow

Verizon Wireless is pleased to announce a new software update from Microsoft for select Windows smartphones.Windows 10 Mobile is full of new features and improvements.

We recently did a mini-review of the Lumia Icon running an Insider build of Windows 10 Mobile and gave it a huge thumbs up. In fact, if you are on Verizon you should maybe consider tracking one down if you are still a fan of the phone and want Microsoft's latest OS.

Overall, tomorrow should be an exciting day, and we're glad Microsoft and Verizon came together to make this happen for users.

To prep for the update, you will want to download the Microsoft Upgrade Advisor app. The update will have to go through that app first and won't be a standard Phone Update check. After you get the official update you will want to check further for another over-the-air update as the Lumia Icon should go right to build 10586.420, but it will likely upgrade to 10586.318 at first.
