Microsoft rolled out a new build 10536 yesterday for Windows 10 Mobile and with it came a slew of bug fixes and performance enhancements.
Here is the list of fixes made in this build:
Here are some of the improvements we’ve made since the last build:
- Insider Hub is now included again!
- Mobile hotspot functionality has been fixed.
- Voice input has been updated to add support for Japanese and English (India) speech recognition.
- Single hop updates are again available from Windows Phone 8.1 to Windows 10 Mobile Insider Preview for all devices.
- Two-factor authentication is fixed when setting up a device for both text and phone authentication.
- Start screen will successfully load instead of failing with “Loading …” displayed in a loop until device was rebooted. (We are still tracking down an issue were it may show “Loading …” for a few seconds.)
- Quite Hours\Do Not Disturb has been fixed.
- Delay in showing date and time on Lock screen has been improved.
- Pinch and zoom in Maps now works as expected.
As you can see there are no significant features added to the OS, just bug fixes and overall improvements.
So just how significant are the improvements in this build over the previous build 10512?
Here's a hands on video I made comparing this Build 10536 to the previous Build 10512, both builds are running on Lumia 830s...
As you can see, they fixed most (if not all) of the bugs that were introduced when build 10512 was released, though they also introduced new bugs, though these new bugs can be ignored or already have a quick workaround.
Microsoft recently announced an Event on the 6th of October to "most likely probably" launch the Lumia flagship 950 and 950XL along with the Surface Pro 4 and Band 2.
But the question on every WinPhan lips is... Will Windows 10 Mobile be ready by Oct. 6th? Which is less than 3 weeks away. Judging from the state it is in now, I don't think so but we did assume that Windows 10 wouldn't be available for July 29th launch but we were somewhat wrong... It was a decent launch.
We will keep our minds open and see if Microsoft will be able to pull it off again.
