Microsoft plans to roll out the Windows 10 Anniversary Update to PCs and other capable hardware on August 2, but now we have confirmation that mobile devices will also receive the update on that very same day. Head of Microsoft's Windows Insider program, Dona Sarkar, confirmed on Twitter that phones will also start to receive the update as part of a gradual roll out.
