We already reported last week that Microsoft prepares a new build for Windows 10 Mobile Preview. And now, the company finally finished build 10586.17, as it is now rolling out to Insiders on the Fast Ring.

The new build comes with significant improvements of the system, and some people even believe that this version of Windows 10 Mobile will be the RTM version, and that it could be shipped to Windows Phone users as a free upgrade.

Here’s the complete changelog of the new Windows 10 Mobile build 10586.17:

  • Fixed an issue where in some cases a device could be missing tiles on the Start screen after going through the device out of box experience.
  • Improved support in Narrator to speak in multiple languages.
  • Improvements to the device reset experience when BitLocker\Device Encryption is enabled by enterprise policy or by the user.

Build version of the system is now the same as on PC, which also received a version-changing update yesterday.

Build 10586.17 to Become the RTM Version?

As we said, since Microsoft improved a lot of aspects of the system in the new Windows 10 Mobile build, many users tend to believe that this build has a potential to become the RTM version. As we said, since Microsoft improved a lot of aspects of the system in the new Windows 10 Mobile build, many users tend to believe that this build has a potential to become the RTM version.

Of course, there are still some bugs that need to be fixed by Microsoft, but even if this build doesn’t make it as the RTM version, if the company continues to deliver significant improvements with each build, we should expect the final release very soon.

Microsoft recently changed the Update History page for both Windows 10 and Windows 10 Mobile, so if you want some more details about the latest build, make sure to check Microsoft’s new website. We here at WindowsReport are very glad that Microsoft has finally decided to change this as we have always been complaining about it.
