Windows 10 Build 10586.71 release set for Tuesday, Mobile might be included as well
Microsoft has released Windows 10 and with the release of their latest operating system the company had explained that Windows will be continued as a service. One advantage of this strategy is for example that there won’t be released new versions of Windows 11 or even Windows 12, Windows 10 is the final version of Windows and Microsoft will keep updating the new operating system with cumulative updates and feature updates like the upcoming Redstone milestone. The company has released a couple of cumulative updates for their operating system already, but not only for the desktop user but also on mobile device running Windows 10 you have been able to install a few cumulative updates already. Such updates are including mostly bug fixes and performance improvements for the OS such as the last one which has been released on January 12th and brought Windows 10 to version 10586.63.
Now, according to WindowsCentral, Microsoft is said to be working on the next cumulative update for Windows 10 already which will be released on Tuesday, January 26th. Recently Microsoft has released Build 11102 for Windows Insiders on the Fast Ring which was the kick-off to prepare Insiders for the upcoming Feature Update codenamed ‘Redstone’. Though it seems like Microsoft is working on the public version of Windows 10 as well as on the version for Insiders, therefore the sources of WindowsCentral are claiming Microsoft has planned to release Windows 10 Build 10586.71 for the public on Tuesday.
Beside the question about the accuracy of these rumors there is the question about the Windows 10 Mobile, will it get this cumulative update as well? As you might know, first devices with Windows 10 Mobile pre-installed are shipped already by Microsoft and the company is still fixing one or two bugs owners of the Lumia 950, Lumia 950 XL and Lumia 550 are facing here and there. If you believe WindowsCentral, Windows 10 Mobile Build 10586.71 is currently in internal testing status and could be released to Insiders on the Fast Ring on Tuesday. A release for the public might then happen at the beginning of February. However this is very speculative at this time and can not be confirmed, neither by WindowsCentral nor by someone else.
As described at the beginning of the article, this is said to be a cumulative update for Windows 10 and these do usually not include any new features. It’s not entirely proven yet, though it is pretty sure it will be more an improvement performance wise than feature wise.
Don’t forget to check for updates on Tuesday, we will of course cover any news we discover about this cumulative update. Stay tuned for more Microsoft related news and drop me a comment below what you think about the current status of Windows 10 and Windows 10 Mobile.
