Windows 10 build 14948 could be the next Redstone 2 build

Microsoft rolled out Windows 10 build 14942 last week, and it appears that the Insider Team is preparing to push a new build soon. The upcoming Redstone 2 build could bear the code name 14948, but no other details are available about its content.

There are many Windows 10 Insiders who installed the Buildfeed app, a service which tracks known builds of Windows using a variety of sources. The app’s developer hasn’t revealed what those sources are, but it seems the information it disclosed so far was pretty accurate.

As a result, many Insiders are convinced that build 14948 is going to be the next Redstone 2 build Microsoft will release. For the time being, there is no official confirmation yet as to the existence of build 14948.

However, there is one clue that suggests Dona Sarkar’s team is adding the finishing touches to the upcoming build. Yesterday, Sarkar created a quick poll on Twitter, asking Insiders if they installed any additional speech language packs on their Mobile devices. The poll is valid 24 hours, and, as we speak, Insiders have only one hour left to send in their feedback.

Most likely, the upcoming Windows 10 Redstone 2 build will support both PC and Mobile.

As a quick reminder, the list of known issues for PC includes:

  • Issues signing into games that use Xbox Live.
  • Microsoft Edge may crash after launch, or when you type in address bar or try to open a new tab. To get Microsoft Edge back working again, you can run the following via PowerShell, which may clear your cookies and history.

Get-ChildItem ‘HKCU:\Software\Classes\Local Settings\Software\
Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\AppContainer\ Storage\microsoft.
microsoftedge_8wekyb3d8bbwe\Children’ | foreach
{Remove-Item $_.pspath -Recurse}

  • Touch scrolling is too sensitive in some Windows 10 apps, such as Microsoft Edge.
  • Insiders doing web development may find themselves their local intranet server unreachable, as service host separation will leave the IIS World Wide Web Publishing Service (W3Svc) unable to start successfully.

Only two known issues are on the list for Windows Mobile:

  • If you have your default storage set to a SD card for apps, installation of apps like WhatsApp, Facebook Messenger and WeChat will fail with an error. As a workaround, set your default location to your device’s onboard storage.
  • Text messages sometimes fail to send. The workaround is to reboot the phone. Receiving texts is unaffected.

As a quick update, it appears that the upcoming release is going to be Windows 10 build 14946. Dona Sarkar just teased Insiders about it on her Twitter account.
