OTA update with double-tap to wake is finally available for the AT&T Lumia 950

On September 9, users of the AT&T variant of the Lumia 950 found that there was new firmware available for their device through the Windows Device Recovery Tool (WDRT), enabling double-tap to wake. Today, that update is finally rolling out over-the-air (OTA).

If you've got one, then you know that AT&T tends to take much longer to roll out these updates than if you had an unlocked device. In fact, this firmware began showing up way back in July in some regions.

Here is the official changelog:

  • Wi-Fi connectivity improvements, including fixes for Wi-Fi connection dropping randomly and Wi-Fi scan occasionally not returning any results.

  • Support for double tap to wake enabled.

  • Bluetooth connectivity improvements.

  • Stability and reliability improvements.

  • Camera improvements, including improved image and video quality, improved Auto-focus and fix for a problem that was causing slow motion capture to skip frames for some users.

  • Cellular connectivity improvements, including fix for a problem that caused occasional network loss for some users.

  • Audio quality improvements, including fix fora problem that caused voice call audio to get scrambled for some users.

Yesterday, we also reported that Lumia 650 devices in some regions can get double-tap to wake through the WDRT; however, Microsoft still hasn't listed the update on its firmware page, so we still don't know what else is included in that one, or when an OTA will be available.

In the meantime, AT&T users will have to grab this rare win, as those on the network's Lumia 950 always have to wait to see new firmware, if they end up seeing it at all.
