While users speculate about release of the RTM version of Windows 10 Mobile for devices that originally came with Windows Phone 8.1, Microsoft is releasing the new build 10586.107 for devices that are already shipped with the latest version of the operating system (Lumia 950 XL, Lumia 950 and Lumia 550).

The new build is also dubbed as the February Cumulative Update for Windows 10 Mobile, and although it doesn’t introduce any new features to the system, it brings a couple of bug fixes and system improvements.

February Cumulative Update for Windows 10 Mobile Features

The update mainly focuses on reliability and stability improvements of the system, but it also brings some improvements to Windows 10 Mobile’s existing features and apps. For example, it improves PDF rendering and navigation in Microsoft Edge, and improves the battery usage with Iris Recognition for Windows Hello.

Another change is that you’re now required to have your phone connected to the charger while downloading new updates. Here’s the full changelog of the February Cumulative Update for Windows 10 Mobile, released by Microsoft:

  • Reliability and stability improvements.
  • Bluetooth connectivity improvements with car and other accessories.
  • Microsoft Edge improvements to PDF rendering and navigation.
  • Improvements for battery usage with Iris Recognition for Windows Hello.
  • Update system improvements to fix a situation where some users had phone software updates and app downloads stuck at 0% for extended time periods.
  • Change to update system to now require phone to be plugged into a charger when downloading and preparing phone software updates.
  • Fix for a problem causing erroneous low storage prompts for some users when trying to download phone software updates.
  • Fix for a problem that caused erroneous prompts of Outlook account settings being out-of-date for some users, although account settings had not been changed.
  • Fix for a problem that caused some phones to get stuck on BitLocker Recovery screen after a reset.

If you own some of these Lumia devicec that comes with Windows 10 Mobile pre-installed, just head to Settings > Updates & Security, and check for updates.

Microsoft also recently started to offer firmware updates for compatible Windows 10 Mobile devices, so if you own such a device, and you want to start receiving firmware updates for your Windows 10 Mobile phone, check out this article, to find out how to become eligible for Windows 10 Mobile firmware updates.
