New firmware update for Lumia 950/950 XL: 01078.00053.16236.35xxx

Hey folks,

We are starting to rollout a new firmware update today for Lumia 950/950 XL: 01078.00053.16236.35xxx. Key improvements in this release include:

  • 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.

The availability of the update may depend on your phone model, region or network service provider. Starting today, the update should become available for the first batch of phones and the remaining ones are expected to receive the update gradually.

Windows 10 is updating continuously, so make sure you follow all the update notifications that appear on your phone. To check for updates, you can also tap Settings > Update & security > Phone update > Check for updates. For more detailed update instructions and troubleshooting, see.

Is double tap to wake also coming to the Lumia 650?
Any relation on the availability for being an Insider Slow/fast ring?

I installed the firmware 01078.00053.16236.35xxx update on 7/5/16 via the Microsoft WDR tool on my L950XL and double tap to wake works like my L640XL.  Love it. 

Mobile hotspot still does not work on my either of L950XL's (rm-1116: 059X5P5).   It works great on my L640XL.  Some please fix mobile hotspot on the L950XL.  I'd be more than happy to send it to Redmond if you need it to troubleshoot the problem.

I made a video on Double tap to wake-up on my 
 old / lost #Lumia950XL on 4th july/16

@Aakash006sharma -

Thanks for the video.... Still waiting to get it on my phone but bit curious to know if it also activates the iris scanner to unlock the phone?
Is Microsoft preparing a new firmware for the Lumia 650, which will fix the Wi-Fi connection problem?
Firmware update availability should not have dependencies on whether you are on Windows Insider program or not. The update be available for both those in "official" update path and those who are in Windows Insider Program (fast or slow). However regardless of the "ring", the rollout still happens in waves (as partners and operators on a given country approve the update).

May I inquire if this firmware release: Lumia 950/950 XL: 01078.00053.16236.35xxx.

Available for both the official and Insider build?

Thanks and regards,

Mark Adrian Blaze


Are you preparing updates for 550/650 with double tap to wake functionality?

And for old Lumias, for example for 735 to make LED work?

Some of my 950(XL)s are not getting it yet.  one of them is running is a slow ring build.

And others in production preview did get it  as did a few fast ring runners.

Its being pushed in flights/batches as armagonfin is saying
