Supported Windows Phones are getting the June 2018 update
Microsoft rolls out the June 2018 security patch
Windows 10 Mobile Build 15254.489 has been released this week as part of the monthly cumulative update cycle. The security patch brings some minor improvements and tweaks for supported Windows phones. Here are the release notes:
This update includes quality improvements. No new operating system features are being introduced in this update. Key changes include:
- This build includes all the improvements from KB4284874.
- Addresses a mobile-only issue in which Enterprise files could be saved as Personal files although the Windows Information Protection policy is enabled on the device.
- If you installed earlier updates, only the new fixes contained in this package will be downloaded and installed on your device.
You can grab the June’s update from Update & Security → Windows Update. Microsoft will keep supporting the last high-end Windows phones until December 2019, according to the official support page. However, more and more users are probably looking for alternative hardware, as Microsoft hasn’t released a new smartphone for more than 2 years, while according to our sources, the rumored ‘Andromeda / Surface’ device might have been delayed to early 2019 or even cancelled. Even if Andromeda sees a daylight this year, it will be very unusual and expensive device to become a real alternative of the smartphone.
