- Addresses an issue that might cause some systems to stop responding at sign in because several background services are being hosted in the same service host process.
- Addresses an issue with the Your Phone app that might cause the copying of large PC files (such as images) to certain phone models to time out.
- Addresses an issue with cellular data for certain mobile carriers that might prevent connectivity on Microsoft Surface Pro X.
- Addresses an issue that fails to pin the new Microsoft Edge icon to the taskbar after a user installs the new Microsoft Edge and creates a new user profile on the device.
- Addresses an issue that prevents some users from signing out because the user session stops responding.
Here is the single known issue in build 19041.113:

This update completely busted cellular on my Surface Pro X.
All signs of cellular in the networking system tray menu and the settings/network and internet page disappeared. Mobile Plans showed some code, sorry didn't make note of it. Control Panel/Network and Internet/Network Connections showed it as disconnected, but wouldn't let me connect.
I messed with it a bit and rebooted a couple times, but ended up rolling back the update to get it working again.
Got around to trying this a second time, worked perfectly
I reckon Release preview will get a 20H1 build soon, surprised we haven't already
