Microsoft had earlier planned the Windows 10 Mobile upgrade for old Lumia devices in December, though later officially confirmed that the update has been delayed until 'early 2016'. Now it seems that the upgrades are finally ready to hit phones, as the Redmond giant has launched an internal beta for the Windows 10 Mobile Upgrade Advisor app.

With the tool, users can essentially find out whether their old Lumia device is eligible for upgrade to the latest Windows 10. The app is still in its beta phase which means its not yet available for everyone, though it appears it'll be rolling out soon for all users.
