Windows 10 KB3216755 issues: here is all you need to know

Microsoft recently rolled out a new update to Release Preview Insiders, adding the finishing touches to the upcoming Patch Tuesday cumulative update. Windows 10 KB3216755 takes the OS build version to 14393.726. The update is available for both PC and Mobile.

For the time being, there is no support page available for KB3216755. Judging by users’ feedback, it’s safe to say that this update brings only quality improvements and bug fixes.

Insiders confirm that KB3216755 also brings issues of its own, but hopefully Microsoft will fix them by the time the update comes to the general public.

Insiders report that KB3216755 literally drains phone battery. Simple activities such as texting, talking on the phone or surfing the Internet significantly reduce battery life. Moreover, the SD card is not immediately recognized after restart, and it appears that there is an overall system lag affecting the OS performance. Other Windows 10 Mobile users report that the screen remains black for a few seconds after they unlock the phone. More specifically, this happens after a phone call, when users lock and then unlock the phone. The device is on, but it takes it about 5 seconds until the display lights up.

Windows 10 PC users also report that this update is causing various third party-related errors. The good news is that KB3216755 downloads and installs in less than 5 minutes, much faster than previous updates.

As a quick reminder, the majority of Windows 10 cumulative updates have been affected by installation issues. The fact that KB3216755 installs in just five minutes is a good sign, indicating that Microsoft has perhaps solved these annoying install bugs.

Have you already installed KB3216755 on your Windows 10 PC or Windows 10 phone? Did you notice anything particular about the new OS version?
