Microsoft Rolls Out Windows 10 Mobile Preview, Final Version Coming this December

3

Microsoft rolled out the latest Windows 10 Mobile preview last week and it is now accessible to all members of the Windows Insider program.

The latest build version 10586 is an RTM version of Windows 10 Mobile and it carries along nothing new when it comes to features, but the team of developers behind the mobile OS have streamlined it to ensure that it delivers better user experience when compared to the previous build version. As usual, make sure you create a backup of your files just in case you wish to upgrade to the latest build, just for precautionary measures.

The previous version 10581 had issues to do with the Start screen, but the new build 10586 now takes care of this garbled screen. Furthermore, once users have updated to the new build, they will be able to set default locations on their devices by simply navigating to the “Settings>System>Storage” options. There have also been fixes in regard to the time delays for loading and resuming when switching between apps, something that makes this build a must have for all users of the previous build. You will also be happy to learn that there will be no more crashing of apps when you try to move them from onboard to microSD card storage.

Final Windows 10 Mobile build coming in December

Windows 10 for PC was released back in July; however, Microsoft has yet to roll out the full mobile version of this OS. Since it was revealed that there won’t be separate versions for PC and mobile users, many are eager to meet the new OS on their handsets.  But it seems the wait will last a little longer as the Redmond-based company says that there will be a final Windows 10 Mobile build version coming out this coming month of December.

Users of Lumia 550, 950XL and 950 smartphones already use Windows 10 Mobile, but the company has promised that the other users of Lumia devices will be getting this new OS in December, with Poland touted to be among the first recipients. According to a report by Tech Times, Polish users of Lumia 630, 635, 640, 735 and 830 will receive the new Windows 10 Mobile OS as from December 14. However, the report also adds that this is only confirmed for the users of Orange mobile carrier.

Another thing to note is that the upgrade will only be available to those with Lumia Denim build and have onboard storage of 8GB.
