After a weeklong break, a new Windows 10 build is out for both PC and Mobile. Dona Sarkar got us used to a machine gun-like pace of build releases, so much so that we were wondering when the next one would be.
Well, it seems that the normal one-week build release cycle is back on track and Insiders will now have enough time to test out the latest Windows 10 builds.
Windows 10 Build 14383 is available only for Fast Ring Insiders and marks the beginning of the final code check in preparation for the Windows 10 Anniversary Update release. Due to the code check, a series of changes are already visible in this build, such as the desktop watermark which is now gone.
