Windows Insider Program for Phones is dead
No new builds planned for Windows 10 Mobile
It doesn’t come as a surprise that Microsoft won’t release new Insider builds for Windows 10 Mobile. Since the feature_2 update from Autumn 2017, the company has been only rolling out monthly cumulative patches with improvements and fixes, part of WaaS (Windows as a Service) model. The currently supported smartphones will remain at the Redstone 2+ branch until December 2019 when Microsoft is officially ending support for Windows 10 Mobile.
One of the Senior Program Managers at Microsoft, Brandon LeBlanc, has announced on Twitter that no Mobile builds are coming to Insiders, although he previously said that we could expect something. But it’s now certain that you have no reasons to stay in the Insider program.
No mobile builds are coming.

While Microsoft is not planning new features for Windows 10 Mobile, the company is working on a modern (UWP) version of Windows 10 – OneCore OS, and Mobile is one of the components. The company is expected to unveil new hardware to demonstrate OneCore OS for mobile devices sometime this year.
