    Here is what I did:
    1. Took screenshots of my start screen so I would know which apps I had pinned and how they were arranged.
    2. Did the same for the All Apps list, so I would remember which apps I had installed. (My screenshots upload to onedrive). You will be wiping your phone and NOT restoring from a backup, so it's best to have a guide for when you are setting your phone up after the update.
    3. Hard reset your phone, sign in and install ONLY the Windows Insider app from the store. Choose Fast Ring, install WM10 and then hard reset again.
    4. Sign in and using your saved screenshots as a guide, reinstall your apps from the store. Do not restore from a backup or you will have issues.

    I also reinstalled the Windows Insider app and set it to slow ring so I will continue to get new builds. I received the update to .36 the next day. There is a learning curve with WM10 and admittedly the battery life is not as good as 8.1, but there are many posts on this forum that can help you work through any issues you may encounter. Just search for what you are having issues with.
    Actually there is no need to take screenshot to remember the apps that you downloaded. You can do the following :

    1) Hard reset and install the new update/ OS version
    2) Sign in to your account on the phone
    3) Do not restore from back up
    4) Go to Store
    5) Select the Hamburger Menu
    6) Select Purchased
    7) Edge will open Microsoft website and ask you to sign in.
    8) You will see the following screen after you sign in.

    Microsoft with Windows 10 was to offer the OS as a free upgrade to current users of Windows 7 and 8.1. In fact theres a good chance that your PC is already displaying a new icon in the system tray, prompting you to upgrade. For XP or Vista users Windows 10 is a paid upgrade, so it's a bigger decision.
