Microsoft today started to roll out updated Build 10586.71 to Insiders in the Fast ring. This is a Cumulative Update that brings the Windows 10 Mobile build number in line with Windows 10 PC, and it includes several bug fixes and improvements. Gabe Aul made the announcement on Twitter earlier this afternoon.

To get on top of things and grab the update now on your Windows Phone head to Settings > Update & Security > Phone Update to start downloading it. You’ll need to restart your phone for the update to complete.
According to Microsoft exec Gabe Aul’s blog post, this build includes the following fixes:
- Windows Update performance and reliability improvements
- Improvements in migration of data profiles and messaging settings when upgraded from Windows Phone 8.1.
- SensorCore API’s are now upgraded correctly from Windows Phone 8.1; allowing applications, including many fitness applications, to correctly access movement data.
- SD card detection has been improved on boot and after insertion; File Explorer now handles the removal of an SD card when the default for apps or photos are set to SD.
- Improvements in the Edge browser, including PDF rendering.
- Bluetooth improvements when re-connecting to already paired devices and cars; turn by turn directions, and when using Cortana with the Microsoft Band.
- Improvements in Settings when downloading Maps or changing Quick Settings.
- Reinstalling Groove Music from the Windows Store no longer causes DRM music playback issues. Groove Music local song collections are now more quickly imported within the application
- Device power improvements after listening to music, after missed phone calls when iris detection is disabled, and when downloading updates.
- In app purchases now work correctly when cellular data is disabled.
- Improvements to the reliability of Kids Corner.
As is usually the case with Windows 10 Mobile updates, for me anyway, it can take a while for the update to complete. I’ve been using a Lumia 635 to test these new builds and it usually takes a couple of hours to complete. However, since this is actually considered a Cumulative Update, things are happening a bit faster.
After you get the update on your phone, leave a comment below and let us know how things are working.
