Microsoft Releases Windows 10 Mobile Preview Build 14342.1004

While the future of Windows Phone for consumers has seen better days, the company continues to update Windows 10 Mobile. Today the company released another incremental update to the current preview and brings it to Build 14342.1004.

Windows 10 Mobile Preview Build 14342.1004

According to Gabe Aul, this update adds some fixes to battery life issues for the Lumia 930, 929, and some other phones. Gabe noted the following on the Windows Experience Blog:

UPDATE 5/25: We are releasing Build 14342.1004 today for Windows Insiders in the Fast ring. This build is exactly the same but with some additional fixes including a fix for the battery life issues we were seeing on some devices such as the Lumia 930, 929 and others which was also causing these devices to get hot.

This comes on the heels of last week’s Windows 10 Mobile Preview update, Build 14342.1003. It fixed some issue and added some new features like swipe navigation for Microsoft Edge, apps for websites, improvements to the Feedback Hub.

As for the future for Windows Phone for consumers, it appears Microsoft is going to focus on business customers moving forward. The company is cutting 1,850 jobs and paying a restructuring charge of $950 million.

If you’re a Windows Insider in the Fast ring, let us know how your phone is working after installing this update. Were you experiencing problems with the battery getting too hot?

    Have to give recent 14342.1004 high marks for overall bug fixes and stability which have been major issues for me. Yes battery drain and overheating became a known issue with this release, but Kudos’ to M.S. for responding so quickly to these problems with it’s latest release. Speaking only for myself Windows 10 and my Lumia 640 LTE are finally in sync with each other…. Hooray!!!

    Was experiencing battery drain & heat with the 1001/3 updates. Just installed the 1004 update, we’ll see how this works.
