Microsoft just started to roll out the latest build 10586.218 for Windows 10 Mobile. The build is available for all Insiders on the Release Preview ring, phones officially updated to Windows 10 Mobile, as well as all devices that originally came with Windows 10 Mobile.

After Microsoft finished internal tests, this build was originally available only to Insiders on the Release Preview Ring. However, a couple of hours later retail Windows 10 Mobile devices received it, as well. The same build was also released to PC, in form of a cumulative update, so two versions of the operating system have the same build number again, with .218.
