Windows 10 Mobile build 14393.187 now available in Slow and Release Preview rings

Yesterday, Microsoft released Windows 10 for PCs build 14393.187 to everyone. Even though it was Patch Tuesday, a new cumulative update for Windows 10 Mobile was notably missing.

Today, the company is releasing the same update for phone users on the Slow and Release Preview rings of the Insider Preview. Non-Insiders, who are on what's called the Production ring, are still being offered 14393.67, which is the same one that shipped with the Anniversary Update almost a month ago.

We're not likely to see a new changelog for this update, as Microsoft combines PC and Mobile release notes these days. Here's the full changelog from yesterday:

  • Improved reliability of Windows Shell, map apps, Internet Explorer 11, and Microsoft Edge.

  • Addressed issue causing push-button reset to not work correctly and roll back on devices with language set to any of the Unicode languages.

  • Addressed issue causing devices to crash after disconnecting an e-reader that was attached to the device.

  • Addressed issue causing devices to not recognize a Secure Digital (SD) card if it is inserted and removed multiple times.

  • Addressed issue causing some apps to not respond to the commands in the app bar in Windows 10 Mobile.

  • Addressed issue that sometimes blocks alarm notifications in Windows 10 Mobile.

  • Improved support for using the camera app in Windows 10 Mobile Enterprise.

  • Addressed additional issues with rendering 4K resolution, missing Start menu tiles when running on battery, Internet Explorer 11, Microsoft Edge, Bluetooth compatibility, graphics, display rotation, app compatibility, Wi-Fi, Feedback Hub, Miracast, Windows Shell, revised daylight saving time, and USB.

  • Security updates to Microsoft Edge, Internet Explorer 11, Microsoft Graphics Component, Windows kernel, and Adobe Flash Player.

As you can see, a number of the fixes and improvements listed to apply to Windows 10 Mobile, which is great news. It's unknown when build 14393.187 for Mobile will actually make it to the Production ring, but it should be relatively soon. It's very rare that a Patch Tuesday comes and goes without a cumulative update for Windows 10 Mobile.

Of course, if you really want it right now, you can sign up for the Release Preview ring by heading over to Settings -> Update & security -> Windows Insider Program, and tapping Get started. Your phone will reboot and you'll be enrolled.
