Despite being a couple of weeks late, a new build of Windows 10 Mobile Insider Preview is now available for all Lumia users. Yes, that includes the Lumia Icon, 930 ad 640 XL, which were previously not included in the program.
A new build of Windows 10 Mobile preview was expected to launch late last month and subsequently in the first week of May. However, issues with the builds meant they weren’t good enough for public consumption and the release was subsequently delayed.
Finally build 10080, up from 10051, is now rolling out to Insiders. And yes, that includes the Icon, Lumia 930 and the Lumia 640 XL, which until now were barred from the previews thanks to scaling issues. First time testers upgrading from Windows Phone 8.1 will need to make sure they’ve registered through the Windows Insider app and have selected the Fast Ring.
Build 10080 brings lots of new features, including the Beta Store, with access to the new Universal Office preview apps, as well as UI changes, more customization options and so on. You can check out the full list of changes here.
But be warned that there are also known issues with this build, such as problems with the tile layouts. You can also check other known issues with this version here, and decide whether this preview is for you or whether it’s better to hold off for now.
As usual we recommend caution, especially if you’re planning on installing Windows 10 Mobile Insider Preview on your main device. Plus we'll have a lot of coverage on the main page so you don’t miss anything, and get to enjoy the latest build without risking your devices.
