The Azure Sphere Preview 20.01 release is now available for retail evaluation

Published date: February 04, 2020

The Azure Sphere Preview 20.01 release is now available via the retail evaluation feed. The retail evaluation period provides 14 days for backwards compatibility testing. Please verify that your applications and devices operate properly with this release before it's deployed broadly via the retail feed.

The best way to ensure that you're ready is to set up devices for OS evaluation by assigning them to a device group that receives the retail evaluation feed. It’s best practice to keep at least one device in this group at all times.

If you have any problems, notify us right away through your Microsoft technical account manager (TAM). Microsoft engineers and Azure Sphere community experts will also respond to product-related questions in the Microsoft Developer Network forum and development questions on Stack Overflow

Learn how to install and test the 20.01 Azure Sphere Preview release during the evaluation period.
