Windows 10 Mobile build 15007: What's been fixed... and what hasn't

Insiders with Windows 10 Mobile devices may have felt a bit left out of all the excitement lately - after all, the last Insider Preview for phones in the Fast ring came over a month ago, while PCs have had two Fast ring builds this week alone.

Today, though, Microsoft rolled out Windows 10 Insider Preview build 15007 for both PCs and phones, including a whole bunch of new features for both sets of devices, as well as some new features specifically for phones. But along with those additions, build 15007 also brings its share of fixes and known issues - you can find information on those for PCs here.

Let's first take a look at the fixes for Windows 10 Mobile devices in this new build:

  • In response to your feedback, alarm sounds will start at a slightly higher volume level. (They will then ramp up to full volume, as before).
  • We fixed an issue Insiders with certain devices, such as the Lumia 950, may have experienced where their phone sometimes took an unexpectedly long time to show up after connecting to their PC.
  • We fixed an issue where System related notification toasts (e.g. Bluetooth, USB/Autoplay, etc.) didn’t work.
  • We’ve updated the experience when using Cortana to receive incoming SMS messages over Bluetooth to make it more reliable. To enable this feature if it is not already, open Cortana settings and make sure one of the following Bluetooth options is on: “Bluetooth and wired headsets” or “Bluetooth only”.
  • We fixed an issue where video recorded in portrait mode might not playback with the correct aspect ratio.
  • We fixed an issue on recent Insider builds resulting in the Skype Preview tile not updating with an alert badge when a new message had been received.
  • We fixed an issue where certain websites pinned to Start from Microsoft Edge when tapped would perform a web search rather than opening to that page.
  • We fixed an issue where the SIM Pin dialog would display truncated text in certain languages.
  • We fixed an issue that could result in the phone getting stuck at the Goodbye screen when rebooting if Bluetooth was enabled.
  • We fixed an issue resulting in the Outlook Calendar sometimes displaying the wrong date on its live tile after a new day has begun.
  • We fixed a bug that was preventing Notification Listener apps (like wearable apps) from accessing notifications on recent builds.

And before you install build 15007, make sure that you have a good look through the list of known issues - especially if you're mad enough to install Fast ring builds on your primary, everyday handset (not recommended!!):

  • The Windows Hello greeting is missing from the lock screen. Showing the animation and user name is important for letting you know we have securely identified you. Of course, we also recognize the essential purpose of the Windows Hello feature is getting you to your Start screen without delay. We’re working hard to make sign-in as quick as possible across all Windows Hello scenarios.
  • AAD Identity Settings Sync: You may not see your Favorites or Reading List roam down in Microsoft Edge if you try to immediately open these tabs after opening Microsoft Edge. You can open Microsoft Edge, wait 30 seconds, and then open favorites and Reading List to see content.
  • AAD Identity Settings Sync: Microsoft Edge does not sync Reading List from PC to phone unless there is a restart.
  • AAD Identity Settings Sync: Microsoft Edge is syncing passwords on phone but not showing them in “saved passwords” in Microsoft Edge settings.
  • When you receive a new email notification and tap on it to open the message, it doesn’t open the Mail app or message.
  • New option to pause updates contains text referencing PC-only Windows Defender.
  • Insiders with certain devices, such as the Lumia 635 and 636, may not be able to manually change the brightness. The brightness will still automatically adjust if it is set to do so, so please use that for the time being while we investigate.
  • The ninja cat emoji display in two characters on the keyboard instead of the expected one.
  • Adding a new card / paying with an existing card will not work in Microsoft Wallet.

Since this is the first build for Windows 10 Mobile devices in six weeks, expectations will no doubt be high among Insiders. If you're installing it today, let us know what you think of Insider Preview build 15007 in the comments below.
