Windows 10 build 14393.5 for PC and Mobile now available for Slow and Release Preview rings

Microsoft today released Windows 10 Insider Preview build 14393.5 to both the Slow and Release Preview rings.

In case you're wondering what this means, this is it. The Release Preview ring was designed for updates that are headed to the Production ring (non-Insiders). If you want the Anniversary Update now, you can grab it through RP, as this all but confirms that 14393.5 is the build that non-Insiders will receive.

This also means that for the first time in months, Fast, Slow, and Release Preview rings are all offering the same build. It should remain this way until the first Redstone 2 build hits the Fast ring next month.

Build 14393.5 was originally released to the Fast ring on Monday. In case you missed it, here's what's new:

  • We have improved reliability and performance of Microsoft Edge with AdBlock and LastPass extensions enabled. These extensions should continue to work after installing other extension updates from the Store.

  • We fixed an issue causing battery to drain due to runaway CPU processes while a device is idle. We also fixed a battery life issue due to the proximity sensor always running on some devices.

  • We fixed an issue causing Store apps to stop launching due to a licensing issue.

  • We have fixed an issue that results in Windows Updates being delayed on systems with Connected Standby.

  • We fixed an issue where the Korean IME would not have the correct composition on some custom TSF3 edit controls on PC.

  • We fixed an issue where you might not be able to type in text into Search or some Store apps without having to restart the process.

  • We have fixed an issue where keyboard input on some Windows tablet devices would not rotate to landscape normally.

Of course, if you're on the Slow ring, you may want to check out what you missed in build 14393.3. If you're on the Release Preview ring, well, you might want to check out a round-up of what's coming in the whole Anniversary Update.

If you're still on the Production ring, no worries. The Anniversary Update will begin rolling out on Tuesday, August 2.
