As you can see, this list includes only a limited set of Windows Phone 8.1 devices. If you are running a Windows 10 Mobile Edition under the Windows 10 Mobile Insider program, you will not receive the update. Microsoft has blocked the update for phones which are running older hardware which have an impact on the customer experience. Only the devices that we have passed the Windows 10 user experience tests are getting this upgrade.

The upgrade process is manual and you need to install the “Upgrade Adviser App” from the store in order to install the update:
