    Is there any chance of getting Lumia 950 XL with anniversary update out of the box in coming months? Don't know whether Microsoft still producing Lumia 950xl or its just the old stock left. If anyone can confirm I can wait and buy.

    probably not, but it would be there the first time you check for updates.

    They all come with the release ROM no matter what model and how long after release you purchase.

    That has been my experience.

    However I remember seeing a post where the person said he had received surface 3 devices with windows 10 pre-installed and yet the surface 3 came with 8.1?

    It all depends on whether there's a new batch at some point after the updated software is widely available (i.e. Anniversary Update is in WDRT)

    So if I purchase a Lumia 950xl now do I have to do a series of updates or directly anniversary update?

    I just purchased a new 950 XL from B&H Photo. I only had to do the one update to install Anniversary Update. It was nice only having to do the one update but it took over an hour to install.

    I actually had to replace my Surface 3 after one of the Fast ring updates"killed" it (it would blue screen no matter what when trying to load up the OS). The new one did come with Windows 10 out of the box.

    series of updates which will eventually carry you to AU, you might have firmware update also.

    Why does this matter? You can just upgrade once you boot the phone, i don't understand.

    Limited access to WiFi and limited metered data on carrier...

    Well I believe going through series of updates finally leaves some more bugs.

    if it was upgraded, old installation files can get left over thus decreasing performance unless you do factory reset at the end of it

    It'll directly to the AU, not sure about the firmware update.. I am getting the 950xl in a week. Will inform how many updates I got.
