Just like the previous release, Microsoft has now rolled out Windows 10 Mobile build 10586.36 as a cumulative update for both slow and fast ring Insiders. Implying the new build primarily gets bug fixes and performance improvements, as being part of the cumulative update it doesn’t bring any additional features.
“This build continues to address feedback we’ve received from Windows Insiders as well as customers using our brand new Windows 10 phones like the Lumia 950 and Lumia 950 XL. As with the previous release, this Cumulative Update continues to use the minor version for differentiating between each version – so this build will appear as 10586.36,” said Microsoft’s Gabriel Aul in a blog post announcing the build.
He also added that this update essentially fixes those bugs that led Microsoft to pull the plug on build 10586.29, which also blocked the latest build from being installed on new Lumia 950 and Lumia 950 XL devices. Though this doesn’t mean that this update works seamlessly on Windows 10 Mobile devices.
Being a part of the preview program it might still have a number of issues, though from now on Microsoft will stop publishing the list of known issues in the announcement blog. Instead, they’ll be available on the Insider Hub and on Twitter. Aul also notes that the Windows team is still looking for feedback to further fine tune the OS ahead of its public release, which has now been delayed until early 2016.
“We continue to use the feedback we get from Windows Insiders to improve the upgrade experience and this update has some improvements to that experience,” Aul added.
In addition, Microsoft has also pushed out a cumulative update for Windows 10 PCs, KB3124200, which bumping the build version to 10586.36. There’s no changelog so far, but the update essentially aims to bring general fixes and improvements and no new features. FYI, this update is for public Build 10586 only.
Aul also notes that Windows Insiders won’t be getting any new updates for both PCs and mobiles until the new year, as he along with his Windows team will be taking some time off during the upcoming holiday season.
The update has now started rolling out for Insiders, and we expect it to be available on non-insider Windows 10 mobile devices in the near future as well. For now, both slow and fast ring Insiders can grab the update.
