Windows 10 Mobile build 10166 now available for Fast Ring Insiders

12:09 PM

Microsoft has released another mobile build for Fast Ring, build 10166, which aligns it with the present Windows 10 build for PC. It doesn't bring any new features but addresses most of the issues that were present in the build 10149 most notably the lockscreen/PIN issues and missing of post-upgrade migration status screen. Thankfully with this build, most of the issues have been resolved.

There are lots of small changes and feature tweaks in this build, but the major focus over the past few builds on mobile has been about improvements to core quality - Gabe

If you are a Windows Insider, you can grab the update by navigating to Settings->Update and Security-> Phone Update. Keep in mind that the update is only available to the fast ring, and is yet to be released to slow ring.

The blog post reads:

  • We fixed the issue where the post-upgrade migration status screen was missing, which made the Lock screen appear frozen without the date and time for up to 10 minutes. The post-upgrade migration status screen should appear normally now.
  • We also fixed the issue where you were unable to unlock your phone after entering your PIN and it keeps letting you type even though you entered your pin correctly that was caused by a TPM issue.
  • The colors in apps should now appear correctly including in including the title bar in the Outlook Mail app which is no longer orange. 
  • And we also improved reliability of app downloads and updates from the Store (which is now no longer marked as “Beta” and the old Store has been removed).

We also got a lot of feedback about the size of the battery icon, so we bumped that up a bit larger to make it easier for everyone to see.

Be sure to check the Store and grab the latest app updates from there too, as there have been lots of improvements to apps over the past few weeks as well.
