Windows 10 Preview Build 15063.2 Live for Mobile – Brings the Ability to Update From Anniversary Update
Microsoft has now started to push Windows 10 Insider Preview Build 15063.2 to Mobile only. The build is now available to Windows Insiders in the Fast ring and offers only one bug fix - the ability to update to build 15063 from the Windows 10 Anniversary Update (build 14393) on Windows phones. This is the first cumulative update rolling out to Windows 10 Mobile Creators Update.
Windows 10 Mobile Creators Update 15063.2
Several reports, availability of ISO files and then Update Assistant tool confirmed that Windows 10 Insider Preview build 15063 is indeed the Release to Manufacturing build, which will be released to the public next month. While a number of users managed to download Windows 10 through ISO files and install the newest version of Windows 10, Windows Phones are still lagging behind.

Today's cumulative update release further confirms that 15063 is indeed the final build and we are not going to get any more Preview builds for Creators Update. Microsoft is expected to soon make the ISO files available through the Windows Insider website, and then the public Windows 10 download site.
Bug fixed in 15063.2
When Windows 10 Mobile Creators Update 15063 was released last week, it carried a known issue that said:
Updating from the Windows 10 Anniversary Update (Build 14393) directly to this build won’t work. There will be an extra hop required to get to this build. If you use WDRT to go re-flash your device and join the Fast ring, you will not be offered this build and instead offered Build 15055. Once you’re on Build 15055, your device will find Build 15063 and take the update then.
In today's update, the company wrote:
We have released Windows 10 Insider Preview Build 15063.2 for Mobile to Windows Insiders in the Fast ring. This build includes a single fix to enable the ability to update to Build 15063 from the Windows 10 Anniversary Update (Build 14393) on Windows phones.
Right now, Windows 10 Mobile Creators Update 15063.2 is only available in the Fast ring. However, it is expected to soon reach the Slow ring too, looking at the speed of Windows engineers in the past few weeks. After Creators Update, Microsoft is likely to send a number of cumulative updates to both PC and Mobile users to fix any remaining bugs or compatibility issues. Our readers have, however, suggested that the build 15063 looks like a strong, bug-free candidate.
