August 2nd, Microsoft rolled out the Windows 10 Anniversary Update for Windows PC. Although the update was or is not readily available to every Windows 10 PC; availability is subject to the user’s country or region. Regions like the North America were among the first to receive this update. A week after the update for PC, Microsoft announced it is prepping up for Windows 10 Mobile Anniversary Update roll out.
The update is now available and eligible Windows 10 mobile devices can get the update. Any device running Windows 10 Mobile, whether it came with it out of the box, or upgraded from Windows 8.1 Mobile will or is getting the update.

Like for PC, the Anniversary Update is rolling out in waves. The first wave usually starts with North America among other countries. If you still haven’t gotten the update, it could be your region is yet to be included in the waves.
Microsoft post on its site reads in part, “availability may vary by manufacturer, model, country or region, mobile operator or service provider, hardware limitation and other factors.”
