Microsoft has consistently delayed the arrival of the Windows 10 Mobile update since December 2015, but fresh information indicate that the update will finally be rolled out this month.

Venture Beat reports that an email received by its partners revealed that Microsoft was aiming to begin the release of Windows 10 Mobile update in March 2016. It is likely to start this month after the Redmond giant releases monthly service updates for its 2015 flagships, the Lumia 950 and Lumia 950 XL.

The publication further added that Microsoft would be releasing the update passively to users. This means Lumia smartphone owners will have to manually check for the availability of the Windows 10 Mobile update on their devices. The Redmond giant will then release the OTA update for eligible devices after.

Since Microsoft has been constantly releasing newer incremental updates for Windows Insiders, its firmware has expectedly become more stable. Hence, Windows Phone 8.1 users are unlikely to face major issues after migrating to Windows 10 Mobile.

Vodafone Australia has already completed the testing of the Windows 10 Mobile firmware for smartphones like the Lumia 640, Lumia 640 XL, Lumia 735 and Lumia 930. However, the carrier is awaiting confirmation before making it available to users of the aforementioned Lumia devices.

However, the forum site of Vodafone Italia has confirmed that the Windows 10 Mobile update will be released for Lumia 535, Lumia 635, Lumia 735, Lumia 830, Lumia 930 and Lumia 1020 from this week.

Although the arrival of the Windows 10 Mobile OTA update seems imminent, as affirmed by multiple sources, there has been no official declaration from the Redmond giant on the matter yet.
