Welcome to episode 9 of the Neowin Podcast, the show where Rich Woods and João Carrasqueira talk about all the big news from the past week.
This week saw the long-awaited release of the first Windows 10 19H2 build to Insiders in the Slow Ring, after the company failed to meet its spring deadline without much of an explanation. As expected, the next feature update to Windows 10 will be a cumulative update, similar to the Service Packs of yore. We also reached the deadline for apps to be distributed to Windows 8 and 8.1, as well as Windows Phone 8 and 8.1, nailing yet another nail on the mobile operating system's coffin.
