Microsoft’s Windows 10 Anniversary Update is now available for PCs including laptops, desktops, tablets, and convertibles. But what if you’re one of the small number of people with a Windows 10 Mobile smartphone?

You’ll have to wait a little longer. Microsoft says the Anniversary Update will be available for phones “in the coming weeks.”

Update: The weeks are up. Microsoft has released the Anniversary Update for Windows 10 Mobile.

That’s the bad news. The good news is that you’re not really missing much. The Anniversary Update brings a bunch of new things for desktop users, including enhanced Windows Ink features, support for extensions in the Edge web browser, and even the ability to run some Ubuntu Linux software within Windows.

Mobile users don’t get any of those features. But the Anniversary Update does include a camera icon on the lock screen for quickly opening the camera app, the ability to customize the Action Center a bit, and “chaseable tiles” on the start screen, which allow apps to know more about how you’re interacting with their Live Tiles.
