Windows 10 Mobile build 10586.164 now available for AT&T Lumia 950

One week ago, Microsoft released Windows 10 Mobile build 10586.164 to the Release Preview and Slow rings, as well as the Production ring for unlocked devices, promising to deliver it to carrier locked devices in the next week.

It would appear that they have stuck to their planned schedule. Today, the cumulative update is available to non-Insiders using the AT&T model of the Lumia 950.

While the build was initially stated as being almost exactly the same as its predecessor, build 10586.122, the firm later published a list of fixes for the build. Here's what they were:

  • Improvements for the reliability of app notifications, including text messages and alarms not ringing as scheduled.
  • Improvements for text message backup to reduce data and battery usage.
  • Fixes for Microsoft Edge with address bar suggestions showing late or persisting during navigation, “Close all tabs” not closing all tabs, and Word Flow on the address bar not functioning as expected.
  • Fix for a problem where the Microsoft account was not detected by the Outlook Mail, Outlook Calendar and People app. Attempting to add a new contact in this state caused the People app to crash for some users.
  • Fix for a problem that caused the Wi-Fi connection to temporarily switch off after prolonged use for some users.
  • Fix for a problem that caused first-party app updates to fail to install successfully for some users, leaving the apps in state where they cannot be launched.
  • Improvements for battery usage, Bluetooth connectivity, and OS reliability.

You can check out our hands-on with the update right here. Needless to say, we have found - as well as have received quite a bit of feedback stating - that build 10586.164 finally puts Windows 10 Mobile in a usable state.
