Microsoft has managed to turn Windows 10 for PCs into a refined and bug-free operating system. So much has the OS been improved over the past few weeks that Microsoft is celebrating it with some fun Ninjacat wallpapers to share the happiness with its Insider members. However, same is not yet true for Windows 10 Mobile development.
Windows 10 Mobile 10166 released to Slow Ring:
Users will receive Windows 10 for desktops next week, on July 29. Microsoft signed on the release to manufacturing build earlier this month essentially meaning that the operating system is ready for daily, bug-free use. Of course, we will see regular updates (Insiders have already received a couple of updates), but the overall experience is now polished and much more refined when compared to earlier Preview builds.
Comparing that, Windows 10 Mobile is yet to reach that refined level of operation. The operating system for smaller screens isn't expected to be finalized for production until September, showing just how much work is still left to be done. Keeping this in mind, you can still test the features and experience latest Windows 10 if you are an Insider. Windows 10 Mobile 10166 build was released to the Fast ring members a couple of weeks ago; the build is now finally available to the Insiders on the Slow ring as well.
As we had shared with you previously, Windows 10 Mobile 10166 Insider build focuses on improvements to core quality of the OS more than the changes and new features. Various issues and pesky bugs encountered in 10149 have been fixed. Here are some details:
- The problem of frozen lock screen is now fixed - as described in the excerpt above.
- Resolved the issues with unlocking phones after putting in the PIN.
- App downloads are more stable.
- Improvements in the Store updates.
- Larger battery icon.
- Oh, and the big thing, no more Old Store!
- Beta tag is also removed from the new store (as in 10166 PC build).
Expect to see more refined user experience with this latest build and don't forget to download ALL the Windows 10 Phone wallpapers for your devices.
