Microsoft just released the new Cumulative Update for Windows 10 Mobile Preview. The update changes the build number to 10586.71, and is for now available only for the users on the Fast ring.

The new update will bring various improvements and enhancements to the system, as well as some bug fixes. Users on the Fast ring who didn’t download the Insider Fast Configuration Update (which was released on Friday) yet, will also get the update along with the new build.

The Insider Fast Configuration Update will update all expiring licenses of your device, so you’ll be able to receive future updates normally.
