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.

Great news , I think I will wait for the ota update as I don't really want to reset my phone again unless I have to. Last time I did reset from a back up not everything backed up to my phone like it should have .thanks for the heads up.😀

It's 8/22/2016 and my AT&T 950 still hasn't received the new firmware.

Still on 01078.00038.16025.39033

Please, AT&T, OTA release this firmware to your customers.

This announcement is dated July 7, 2016.

It's now August 23, 2016 and we're still waiting.

I have a Lumia 950XL, bought directly from Microsoft unlocked in UK.

My firmware is still 01078.00038.16025.39013.

I'm getting a bit fed up with over-announcement and under-delivery from Microsoft, which seems to happen with virtually everything concerned with mobile.

Same here , last time I did a back up not everything downloaded . I lost my known WiFi passwords etc . Microsoft have changed the way they save backups and now less stuff gets backed up as far as I can see
Wow ! I am still waiting for this update on my unlocked 950xl (UK)why is it so slow to roll out my brother had it on his 950 weeks ago ?
I am still waiting too - unlocked 950 XL purchased from Microsoft's UK store.  

I'm sorry to hear this - it seems like AT&T is continuing their practice of holding updates to the Windows Phone platform hostage, unfortunately.  This is the main reason I went ahead and bought an unlocked phone.

I wonder if another complaint to the BBB is in order. ;)

Hang in there.

I have the same problem in France with my 950 XL. Still waiting...

I went back through this thread to look at the release history and noted the following:

950 XL NAM:
7/20 --> Lumia FW site lists FW
7/20 --> FW available via WDRT
7/26 --> FW available via OTA
6 days in total!

950 XL UK:
8/20 --> FW available via WDRT

??? --> FW available via OTA

The closest thing I could find on the Lumia firmware site is http://www.lumiafirmware.com/ser/RM-1085/guid/059X5X1.  I'm still at a loss to understand as to why it takes way so long for FW to be delivered to unlocked devices.  Does anyone remember the old Lumia site that would list FW available and delivery status?  Now there's a book that MS could take a page from. :)

I feel really bad for folks on AT$T as it looks like they still continue the practice of holding Windows Phone updates hostage:

All I can say is hang in there and don't give up hope.

Same here, according to this http://www.lumiafirmware.com/ser/RM-1085/guid/059X4T9

"01078.00053.16236.35014 - The firmware is available since 19th Aug, but nothing OTA!
