Microsoft just made it clear that ARM64 support would not be available for the next Windows 10 Insider Preview builds. This limitation is due to a software bug. Microsoft is working on the fix and plans to bring back ARM64 support as soon as the bug has been fixed from their end.

Installing new Windows 10 builds on ARM64 computers might leave the system in an undesirable state. It is due to the fact that a bug doesn’t allow the update to be installed correctly into the system. 

Windows 10 19H1 is expected to get an RTM build in March, the operating system is currently in the last stages of its development. The public release of the build is expected to be in mid-April this year. Just after the most recent build’s release, the official version number has officially been changed to 1903. 

Microsoft has been silent about the date when ARM64 support will be available again. It can either be released tomorrow or just after a couple of months, but the company ensures users to bring it back eventually.

What’s new in the latest Windows 10 build?

The Windows 10 Insider Preview build 18323 brings improved Raw image format support for those love viewing pictures in Raw image formats. Windows now offers extended support for Raw files. The build also introduced some improvements to the new Light theme in Windows 10.

The release  also had some known issues as well, some raw image formats are not supporting, including EXIF/XMP metadata. Moreover, if you use the new store-delivered raw codec pack to open a few raw images in the Windows Photos app, the pack might get hang at low-resolution thumbnail image. 

Microsoft encourages the users to provide their feedback using the Feedback Hub that can be found under the following category Devices and Drivers >> Video Playback. Let us know the comments section below if you have experienced any issue with the new build.
