Here are the fixes, improvements, and known issues in Windows 10 Mobile build 15014

This week's Fast ring build is Windows 10 Insider Preview build 15014 for PCs and phones. As usual, most of the new features were geared toward PCs, unlike last week's 15007.

There were a few changes listed that apply to both. For example, ebooks are now sold in the Windows Store and can be read through a dedicated section in the Edge browser. Also, Wi-Fi Sense and Paid Wi-Fi Services have been merged into a setting called "Wi-Fi services".

As always, there's a long list of fixes, improvements, and known issues. Here are the fixes and improvements for Windows 10 Mobile build 15014:

  • Due to decreased usage, Apps Corner is no longer available in Windows 10 Mobile starting with Builds 15007 and above.

  • We have fixed the issue causing some devices on Build 15007 to frequently reboot.

  • We fixed an issue resulting in the Windows Hello greeting being missing from the lock screen.

  • We’ve improved speed of displaying HTTP images on live tiles (for example, the images used on the MSN News app live tile).

  • We fixed an issue where the phone’s display wouldn’t turn off in close proximity to your face when in a call and using Continuum.

  • Stylized buttons in notifications are now aligned to the right – consistent with other system buttons in dialogs.

  • We fixed an issue that might cause an Insider’s custom typing dictionary to be unexpectedly deleted.

  • We fixed an issue on the new Bluetooth & other devices Settings page where Miracast devices would always show as connected, even if they had been disconnected.

Here are the known issues:

  • AAD Identity Settings Sync: Microsoft Edge does not sync Reading List from PC to phone unless there is a restart.

  • AAD Identity Settings Sync: Microsoft Edge is syncing passwords on phone but not showing them in “saved passwords” in Microsoft Edge settings.

  • When you receive a new email notification and tap on it to open the message, it doesn’t open the Mail app or message.

  • New option to pause updates contains text referencing PC-only Windows Defender.

  • Insiders with certain devices, such as the Lumia 635 and 636, may not be able to manually change the brightness. The brightness will still automatically adjust if it is set to do so, so please use that for the time being while we investigate.

  • The ninja cat emoji display in two characters on the keyboard instead of the expected one.

  • Adding a new card / paying with an existing card will not work in Microsoft Wallet.

  • The Quiet Hours quick action button in the Action Center doesn’t work.

  • Microsoft Edge might sometimes unexpectedly not rotate into landscape mode. If this happens, try quickly locking and unlocking your phone.

As always, you should thoroughly read through the known issues before installing the build to make sure that it won't break anything that you need.

If you're already on the Fast ring, you can install 15014 by heading over to Settings -> Updates & security -> Phone update -> Check for updates. If not, go to the Windows Insider Program tab and tap Get started. When your phone reboots, go back and make sure that the Fast ring is selected.
