Supported Windows 10 devices gets the cumulative update for February
Microsoft yesterday started rolling out the February 2018 cumulative update for Windows 10. New OS updates should be available for all Windows 10 versions, including 1511, 1607, 1703 and 1709, for both Windows 10 and Windows 10 Mobile, although the update for version 1709 for Mobile hasn’t shown up on my device at the time of writing. As usual with these patch Tuesday updates, the changelogs are common for PC and Mobile.
[Update: 14 February] The Windows 10 Mobile update for version 1709 is now available with build number 15254.248. Along with the improvements mentioned below, the update also fixes an issue where the touch screen would remain unresponsive. Unfortunately, this build has a bug that prevents you from opening PDF files with the browser. You have to install a standalone PDF-reader from the Store until Microsoft fix this issue.
