    I asked this question at the Microsoft Store (Tyson's Corner, VA) when I pre-ordered my 950XL, but none of the sales folks knew the answer. Having not used the preview on my rapidly-aging 920, I just don't know...

    Will existing apps from 8.1 work under 10? If there's an app I'm using right now, will I be able to download it and use it on the new phone?

    They do, but only apps written for UWP will work with continuum.

    It might be hit or miss with some OLDER apps... Something to keep in mind, as I have noticed in the preview program, so apps dont run right or have errors that pop up (mostly very old games)
