Microsoft stated : The Devices not on this list will not officially receive the Windows 10 Creators Update nor will they receive any future builds from our Development Branch that we release as part of the Windows Insider Program. However, Windows Insiders who have devices not on this list can still keep these devices on the Windows 10 Creators Update at their own risk knowing that it’s unsupported.
the company further added that they recognize that many Insiders will be disappointed to see their device is no longer supported. but, after looking at the feedback from Windows Insiders they realized that they were not providing the best possible experience on older devices which further helped them to determine which devices they should support for the Windows 10 Creators Update.
#WindowsInsiders, you can choose Release Prev and continue to get the cumulative updates, but per your f/b we are not rolling out broadly.

The devices which are left behind are Flasgships like Lumia 930, 1520 and Mid-Rangers like Lumia 730, 735 and Lumia 830. well, this move is disappointing for all the Windows 10 Mobile users who were desperate to try their hands on the Windows 10 Creators update but do take a note that devices which are on the Windows Insider Program will still get cumulative updates on Release Preview Ring at their own risk, as they are’nt elgible for the Creators Update.
