New cumulative build update 10586.164 now available for both WIndows 10 PCs and Windows 10 Mobile. Bunch of fixes/improvements listed

Microsoft today rolled out a new cumulative update 10586.164 for both Windows 10 PCs and Mobile devices.

For the Windows 10 PCs' 10586.164 cumulative update, Microsoft listed the fixes and improvements as:

  • Improved support for Bluetooth, wearables, and apps accessing contacts.
  • Improved reliability in app installation and Narrator.
  • Improved performance for hibernation, content entry in apps, and downloading and installing updates.
  • Fixed issue that didn’t allow login to an Xbox from a PC running Windows 10.
  • Fixed security issue created when attempting to play corrupted content.
  • Fixed security issue that could allow remote code execution while viewing a PDF in Microsoft Edge.
  • Fixed additional issues with .NET Framework, Internet Explorer 11, and networking.
  • Fixed additional security issues with Microsoft Edge, Internet Explorer 11, USB storage driver, kernel mode drivers, .NET Framework, graphic fonts, OLE, secondary logon, PDF library, and Adobe Flash Player.
That's a whole bunch of improvements and bug fixes for PCs.

But that's not the only good news, as Microsoft also rolled out the same cumulative update for mobile devices. Though the 10586.164 is currently available to Windows insiders on the Slow and Release Preview rings, there are reports that it is also available to non-insiders using the Lumia 950, 950XL, 650, 550 and other Windows 10 Mobile devices.

This is a cumulative update so there are no new features, just bug fixes and improvements

Here is the full list of improvements/bug fixes:

  • Improvements for the reliability of app notifications, including text messages and alarms not ringing as scheduled.
  • Improvements for text message backup to reduce data and battery usage.
  • Fixes for Microsoft Edge with address bar suggestions showing late or persisting during navigation, “Close all tabs” not closing all tabs, and Word Flow on the address bar not functioning as expected.  
  • Fix for a problem where the Microsoft account was not detected by the Outlook Mail, Outlook Calendar and People app. Attempting to add a new contact in this state caused the People app to crash for some users.  
  • Fix for a problem that caused the Wi-Fi connection to temporarily switch off after prolonged use for some users.
  • Fix for a problem that caused first-party app updates to fail to install successfully for some users, leaving the apps in state where they cannot be launched.  
  • Improvements for battery usage, Bluetooth connectivity, and OS reliability. 
There are reports that this could be the build that gets pushed as the Windows 10 Mobile software upgrade to older Lumia devices.
