Unfortunately, Lumia Icon, 640XL and Lumia 930 are not getting it for now. Microsoft has mentioned -
And now a bit of bad news: In my last post, I shared a preliminary list of phones we expected to support with this flight. You’ll see that the list has remained largely unchanged with one exception – the Lumia Icon. Unfortunately there is an issue with scaling on certain devices (930, Icon, and 640XL) which makes the UI too small to be usable, and we need to add code to support new scaling thresholds for these devices. That work is underway, so we expect to see support for them in the near future. I know some of you will be disappointed, but trust me that you want us to make that fix before we send it out to you.

Getting Started : 

All you need, is to register for the Windows Insider Program. Be sure to read the instructions so that you can upgrade easily.

Here is What's New :

Project Spartan : An early version of Project Spartan is available. Project spartan is not the default browser and exists side by side with IE11

New mail and Calendar apps : These apps brings a fresh new UI and toggle to freely move between your mails. Much more features are here also.
