Microsoft has begun the process of rolling out its much-anticipated Anniversary Update for Windows 10, bringing vast improvements across both its PC and mobile platforms. Everything from Cortana to the Universal Windows Platform have seen huge changes, with improvements to performance and stability and a host of new features.
With the update rolling out now, there is something to be aware of: the update will be available for Windows 10 users on PC first. Windows 10 Mobile will be receiving the update a little later.
On Twitter, Dona Sarkar, head of the Windows Insider program, announced the prioritisation:
@StanZhelyazkov Yes PC first. Mobile after. We need to be a bit organized with the large number of customers we have.

The reason for the delay is the large number of people who will be updating their PCs around the world, and as such, Microsoft is taking steps to limit any issues that may arise by rolling out the update on a platform-by-platform basis. This system is in line with its earlier roll out of the update on Xbox One last week.
