Windows 11 servicing build 22616.100 (KB5014650) released for Dev and Beta Insiders

Windows 11 Insider Preview

Microsoft has released a servicing update today with a new Windows 11 build 22616.100 (KB5014650) to the Dev and Beta Channel insiders. The new build does not bring anything new to the table as it is a cumulative update with which the company is testing its servicing pipelines as it is often known to do. Microsoft has been frequently releasing servicing updates now as the Dev Channel builds are beaming with new and upcoming features.

The full announcement says:

We are starting to roll out Cumulative Update Build 22616.100 (KB5014650). This update does not include anything new and is designed to test our servicing pipeline for builds in the Dev and Beta Channels.

Hence, all the bug fixes and improvements that were announced with the earlier released build 22616 to the Dev Channel as well as the Beta channel are carried over into this. The build has loads of new features as we are now moving into the next phase of Windows 11 in preparation for version 22H2.

Interestingly, while there are no new changes made in this build, servicing test builds like these before have been known to break some features. For example, Windows 10 Build 21292.1010 caused issues for x64 emulation on ARM PCs.

Microsoft has again reminded that there is a limited window in which Insiders can switch or change channels from the Dev channel over to Beta. That window will likely close as Windows 11 22H2 moves to the Release Preview channel sometime soon. If you are wondering how to do so, here's a handy guide we made that you can use.
