Windows 10 Mobile Redstone build 14283 released to Insiders
The second Redstone build now available on the Fast Ring
Insiders with phones that shipped with Windows 10 Mobile can now install a new Redstone build. Microsoft has published Windows 10 Mobile Build 14283 on the Fast Ring, but the update is only available for a couple of new phones – Lumia 950 & 950 XL, Lumia 650, Lumia 550, Xiaomi Mi 4 and Alcatel Fierce XL.
The company has promised that more phones will be able to join the Redstone branch once these devices receive the official Windows 10 Mobile update. Microsoft is expected to start rolling out the update this month, and Build 10586.164 is the main release candidate.
Those Insiders who want to test the second Redstone build should know that Windows 10 Mobile 14283 includes a number of fixes and improvements over the first build. Microsoft also gives details about two new features.
- Phone app: missed calls and voicemail waiting indicators to the tabs inside the Phone app. Navigating to the tab removes the indicator.
- Outlook Mail & Calendar: you can now turn off the message preview text in the message list. (Settings > Reading > Conversation and turning “Show preview text” off). The second new feature is the ability to get rid of junk email in your inbox by pressing down on a message to bring up the context menu and choosing ‘Move to Junk’..
Fixes and Improvements:
- an issue with the background behind the All apps
- an issue causing the title of a song in volume control to flicker a few times when you pressed play or changed tracks after a pause
- an issue causing the phone to hang white typing and reboot
- improvements in Live Tile refresh: Apps to launch faster from the Start screen if there are incoming Live tile updates. Pending notifications for several Live tiles will be updated in once sweep across the Start Screen. Live Tile badge and content updates to appear at the same time.
- an issue with Live Tiles unexpectedly clear active notifications
- an issue with background shuttering while scrolling the Start screen
- an issue where the keyboard would sometimes pop up when swiping over to the All apps list.
- an issue where icons for certain apps would appear too tiny on Live folders on the Start screen if your phone was set to 350% DPI.
- an issue where “More notifications” message in Action Center was not properly formatted.
- an issue where for certain languages, pressing “@” button could result the contents of the clipboard being pasted.
- an issue where notifications using custom sounds would be silent if the underlying audio file had been deleted. Now, if that file is not present, it will play the default notification sound.
- Connected to wireless displays should now work by going to Action Center and expanding Quick actions and choosing “Connect”.
- updated Bluetooth AVRCP profile on mobile to version 1.5. That means you need to delete your existing Bluetooth pairing with your car and then re-pair.
- Microsoft Band 1 or 2 paired to your phone, it will no longer sync after updating to this build due to a system API failure. You can temporarily change the language of your phone as a short term workaround until a fix.
- Gadgets app is not able to detect the Microsoft Display Dock and cannot update the firmware to version 4.
- Connectivity to older Wi-Fi networks using the WEP encryption security method may be broken. A workaround would be to configure your wireless routers to use WPA or WPA2 or wait for the next Insider flight when this is fixed.
- Feedback Hub: When you open Insider Hub on this build, you will see a new welcome dialog for Feedback Hub. Coming in the next mobile and PC build – Microsoft is bringing together the Insider Hub and Windows Feedback apps into a single app called the Feedback Hub.
