Windows Phone 8 devices will get Windows 10 upgrade, Microsoft reveals

It’s official — Satya Nadella wasn’t bluffing when he said that Windows 10 will be the OS for all future Microsoft devices. Replying to a tweet from a curious consumer, the company revealed that all current devices running Windows Phone 8 will be bumped up to Windows 10 in the future. Huzzah!

This was mainly due to more than the company’s smugness, nevertheless, customers don’t ever seem to forget.
