Microsoft rolled out a new Windows 10 mobile build last night, with a number of fixes and improvements on PC and mobile. Build 15063 remedies issues with Microsoft Edge, language packs, and inbox crashes.

Windows 10 Build 15063 Changelog

While there are a few fixes for PC, the bulk of this build is for Windows 10 Mobile. Here’s the changelog across both platforms:

PC

  • “We fixed a reliability issue from Build 15061 resulting in Microsoft Edge hanging and becoming completely unresponsive.
  • We fixed an issue for Insiders where the localized files and registry keys associated with any additional language packs on the system would not be installed after enabling .NET Framework 3.5.”

Mobile

  • “We fixed the bug causing a number of inbox apps to fail to launch (such as Store) and also preventing any app updates from the Store from working. Thank you all for sending us feedback around this.
  • We fixed the bug causing background tasks to not run in the background like they should such as OneDrive’s camera roll sync feature. Background tasks should be working again as expected and your camera roll will sync to OneDrive again.
  • We fixed the issue where in some cases you may lose your call, text, and email history may be lost if your device experiences an unexpected reboot.
  • Speech Packs should download and install normally.
  • We fixed an issue for Insiders with certain cars resulting in connection failures after pairing Bluetooth.
  • We fixed an issue where replacing the default APN for LTE on the phone wouldn’t work.”

Naturally, there are still a few issues. For a start, the upgrade path between the Windows 10 Anniversary update and this build isn’t yet available on PC. That should be remedied very soon, Microsoft setting an ETA for sometime this morning.

A similar problem exists with Windows 10 Mobile but does not have an easy remedy. Instead, users will have to jump to build 15055 before build 15063 is available. Users should also be aware of issues with Edge, where the team is investigating a constant refresh problem.

Gamers and streamers should also be wary of this build. A problem with advertising IDs is leading to crashes in some games and the “broadcast live” review window in Game bar flashes green constantly while active.

Other than that, the build appears to be relatively stable. You can review the full list of known issues on the Windows blog, alongside fixes for some of the problems mentioned earlier. Let us know what you think below.
