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.
As reported by MSPU:

Now that there are more than 350 million devices rocking Windows 10, it makes sense for Microsoft to kick off a staged release of the highly-anticipated Anniversary Update. We'll have to see just how quickly phones will be updated alongside PCs and other devices come August 2.
