armagonfin started on


we have started rolling out a new firmware update for Lumia 950 and Lumia 950 XL: 01078.00027.15506.020xx. Key highlights include:

  • Stability and performance improvements.
  • Improvements for SD memory card support.
  • Improvements for automatic display brightness settings.
  • Fix for a camera problem that was causing noisy images in low-light conditions for some users.
  • Fix for a 4K video problem that was causing stripes to show up while playing back recorded videos for some users.

The update should be already available for many of the users and rollouts will continue gradually. Availability of the update may depend on your network service provider.

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 detailed update instructions, see.

What I'd like to know is, Does being on an Insider Build or being on the Insider Program affect the availability of the update?

I have same question. I'm an insider but .36 and the firmware update both don't show as available in the updates area.

Insider Build .36 does not seem to be able to get this update... :( In Australia, single SIM, unlocked and unbranded via Optus.

Having a Lumia 950 CV from Netherlands with .36 insider / English language. And no update available. I had the trouble before with *not* getting the .29 and .36 builds. Glad I received them, now this adds a new chapter.

I'm in Australia, with a 950 purchased from Optus with Insider Build .36 installed and have just finished installing the firmware update, Phone alerted me to the update a few hours ago around midday Melbourne time.
