Microsoft to resume flighting Windows Insider builds next week

If you're a Windows Insider holding out for a new build on either Windows 10 or Windows 10 Mobile this week, it seems you'll be waiting a bit longer. Windows Insider chief Dona Sarkar took to Twitter to note that Microsoft will continue flighting builds next week to give time to upgrade some of its monitoring services.

From Sarkar:

The last build to be released to Insiders was 14915, which hit the Fast ring for PC and Mobile at the end of August with a number of improvements across the board. If you're eager to get your hands on even more new goodies, however, it you'll have to wait just a tad longer.

  • Gracias Dona
  • Did they suspend all insider builds or just the ones after 14915?
  • Just the ones after 14915.
  • Stopped all fast ring build. Release preview is still working as usual.
  • Waiting for new features on next build.
  • I'm waiting to get WiFi back
  • Hope finally they would add to edge browser the screenshot in the live tile when user creates a link to a web page to home screen.. Just like in WP 8.1 has
  • Try the application "web tiles"
  • THANK YOU! I did not even realized that there was a 3rd party solution... WebTiles App still needs to be installed after liveTile insertion to Home, but it's okay! HAPPY!
  • You're welcome ;)
  • For the first time in a very long time this is totally ok! I'll wait happily, became a dad for the first time 24 hours ago :)
  • Congrats!
  • :D Thx!
  • Congratulations!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
  • Are baby clowns afraid of themselves? Is this dividing by zero?
  • *pours one out for your free time* :D
  • *pours one out for your sleep* CONGRATS!
  • Congrats
  • Congrats man,
  • What was it- A new Apple?
  • Oh this last build is very buggy
  • I'm out. If they're not testing on Surface Pro 2's before flighting, then why go through what happened last time. MS could've easily caught that issue, before releasing to Insiders.
  • After latest my phone's onedrive is dead. Gotta connect via egde. Also multiple drops to startscreen after other app launch. Reallly buggy build...
  • Just curious if you did a hard reset after taking the upgrade. I've been finding that I now need to do that after every update. The only problem I have now is that my battery is randomly reporting "critically low" and the phone shuts off. Only to reboot and have 75-80% of my battery left! - Lumia 1520 with latest insider build. It's been an issue for about the last two or three insider builds.
  • Nope, didn't do any yet. But if i'd struggle something like your problems, i really would think about one
  • You are not alone with that strange battery behavior. My 1520.3 has it too. I hope its software, but fear it's hardware.
  • That would've happened much earlier if it was hardware
  • Not had an issue this way apart from one small oddity. The bell doesn't show on the alarm live tile, but does on glance. Strange. Loving the coloured glance screen! Battery on 950xl is very, very good now. B/tooth good, wifi good, network good. No hard reset either. The core OS is OK for me, just waiting for the goodies.
  • Yup, battery life on 950xl finally seems to be good. Not great, but good. Easily have some 20-30% left when I get home. Used to be I often had to charge at some point if I wanted to use it normally
  • Hummm... Downloading an new release preview right now, go figure. Maybe Dona wasn't informed about it kkk
  • Probably the patch noted in the comments.
  • Uh oh. They've released .105 on Preview ring on Mobile. (The update screen says .103, but it installs as .105). A little confusion at Microsoft Insiders today. No harm.
  • The last build is making my Icon muy caliente....Please, bring the cool again.
  • So what does resume flighting mean? Focus on other things like Hololens and ninjacat BS instead of fixing Mobile issues???
  • For some reason this update has completely broken my phone.lumia 640
  • Wifi is broken, but used an Ethernet. However, Chrome/any downloadable browsers will not show the dialog box, causing my browser to become unusable.
  • Bumped my 830 up to 14915.1000 last night. Still have the same "blinking screen" issues, but running fine otherwise...
