AT&T has released Windows 10 Mobile for the Lumia 1520

Yesterday, Verizon Lumia Icon users were at long last granted an official release of Windows 10 Mobile. That left Lumia 1520 users on AT&T as one of the more vocal groups waiting impatiently for Microsoft’s latest mobile OS. Apparently, the wait is over, as AT&T has started pushing the update today (via Neowin).

Digging into AT&T’s support site, we see that the release was officially date stamped yesterday, June 23, 2016:

Update summary

To download the update, you must download and install the Windows 10 Upgrade Advisor app from the Windows app store. The update will be available for download via Firmware Over The Air (FOTA). A Wi-Fi connection is required for the update.

As always, your first step in upgrading your Lumia 1520 to Windows 10 Mobile is to install the Upgrade Advisor app and run it. Check the Enable Windows 10 Upgrade box, and then following the instructions from there.

With AT&T releasing the upgrade to Lumia 1520 owners, and the Lumia Icon receiving the upgrade on Verizon, that’s two major Lumia devices out of the way. Let us know in the comments if you have a Lumia that’s not yet received the official upgrade.
