Microsoft releases cumulative update 10586.318 for Windows 10 PCs and phones

It's Patch Tuesday, and that means software updates for all. New cumulative updates are rolling out for Windows 10 PCs, tablets, and phones, bringing the build number to 10586.318.

It's available for everyone, including non-Insiders as well as Insiders that are using the Release Preview ring. This update skips over the last one - build 10586.240 for PCs and 10586.242 for Mobile - which shipped to the Release Preview ring, but never to Production.

As with most cumulative updates, there are no new features. Instead, the new build focuses on fixes and stability improvements.

  • Improvements to Cortana, including a fix for a problem where music playback would not resume after dismissing an incoming text, and a problem with Quiet Hours not setting automatic rules for every day.

  • Fix for a problem that caused recorded video to be lost when answering an incoming call on some phones.

  • Improvements for reliability of internet connection sharing (ICS) and tethering.

  • Fix for a problem that caused the navigation bar to overlay and hide part of the screen for some apps on certain phones.

If you still haven't upgraded to Windows 10 version 1511 just yet, you have a cumulative update waiting as well. Here's what's new in Windows 10 for PCs build 10240.16854:
