Windows 10 Mobile 10536 Coming This Friday After Insiders Voted for It

Gabe Aul tweeted earlier in the day asking Windows Insider members if Microsoft should release Windows 10 Mobile 10536 build out to the community this week. He shared the bugs that were still present mentioning that "under memory pressure, app purchases or IAP [in-app purchases] will cause the Store to crash. It's about 28.8% of the time in our telemetry." The poll overwhelmingly favored the release as it would, of course, considering the input was coming from the insiders.

After this little chat on Twitter this morning, Gabe Aul then announced that Microsoft is indeed rolling out the Windows 10 Mobile build 10536 to the Fast Ring Windows Insiders this Friday. Insiders are definitely happy about the news as there hasn't been any new build since the release of Windows 10 Mobile build 10512, which was released four weeks ago.

Expect the Windows 10 Mobile build 10536 to fix all the issues that were reported in the 10512, including the mobile hotspot issue. While the Windows 10 Mobile 10512 was a major build in terms of improvements over the earlier releases, it carried quite a few bugs, including "Quiet Hours" and broken lock screen for some insider members. We aren't expecting to see any new features though, as the company had already confirmed that the operating system is almost feature-complete.

As far as poll results are concerned, you can check the results here, which show how over 90% of voters wanted to get the build this Friday instead of waiting till next week for the bugs to be fixed.

Microsoft will prepare the build for release today and it will be launching tomorrow. Users will be able to upgrade directly from Windows Phone 8.1 to Windows 10 Mobile 10536 instead of the usual route when you had to install an older Insider Preview before you could upgrade to the current release.
