Windows 10 build 15063 rolling out for Insiders on PC and Mobile

Microsoft is rolling out yet another new Windows 10 build for Insiders in the Fast ring today, featuring yet more bug fixes and under the hood improvements.

What's improved for 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.

What's improved for 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.

  • Awesome, small list means little bugs, right?
  • Not really. They don't always *divulge* all the info... For example that annoying Automatic brightness reduction in x50 phones was fixed in the Creators update but they never openly said it.
  • Landscape mode on the start screen?..... Maybe next time, or next time, or next time, or the time after that.
  • They will not implement it because iphone doesn't have thus feature
  • iPhone does have that feature
  • I think the time after the time after that is very much probable.
  • Redstone 3, maybe
  • May be on Redstone 23.. #Windows4Ever
  • Thank god there won't be Redstone build after 4
  • There are plans for Redstone 7 already
  • Landscape mode will come 10 years from the day Joe Belfiore left Microsoft on his vacation!
  • Never going to happen.
  • That is one of the features that I never get. I'd prefer that they implement landscape typing in all apps. As for the start screen, never had a need for it myself. Incidentally, I didn't down vote, as I know some people do want it. Just never had a need.
  • With Tiles, and especially on larger devices, I just makes sense. So much sense that I naturally find myself trying to use it that way... It would make for a more fluent OS experience, because you wouldn't have to orientate the phone nearly as much.. So, you're in an app that has Landscape mode, and you hit the start button. You have to flip the phone around to navigate the start menu properly, where if the start screen had landscape mode you could leave your hand in one position. Everyone is different, and some don't notice how much they are flipping the phone back, and fourth. It's not a huge inconvenience, and really a first world problem, but it's inefficient, and would be an easy way for MS to make their OS that much more fluent.
    .....
    Another thing that needs to be implemented is pen support... I use my Surface, and phone, at the same time. The pen becomes so natural to me on the Surface that without thinking I move from my Surface to my phone, and start trying to navigate the phone with the Surface pen, just be reminded it doesn't work. We really need this on upcoming mobile hardware.
  • Fair points.wish the damned update would download. My phone can't even see it..... Hmmm.
  • Don't download this build!!!!!! Causes blue screen o death.
  • YES ... im mad!
  • Same here
  • No BSODs here
  • Encryption is not your friend when on insider builds..
  • I'm encrypted, no issues. Not saying there aren't any -- clearly there are -- but encryption is not something to steer clear of in the Insider Programme.
  • Can you explain how it helps? Don't think it can save you from G/BSOD. Or did you mean from recovery?
  • I didn't say it helped. I said it doesn't necessarily cause the screen of death in most cases.
  • BSOD or GSOD?
  • Not for me...
  • BSOD on my Lumia 735.
  • Yes! I'm excited for this on my w10m! 
  • Downloading
  • installing....
  • Rebooting
  • Migrating data...
  • "Assuming direct control"
  • It would be nice if one of these mobile builds would restore Outlook notifications.  They've been gone for something like the past 4 updates!  Bloody hell!
  • Try a hard reset. But be careful regarding encryption ON. I did an update on a L535 on 14393.693 to .953 and it showed the BitLocker recovery key issue.
    This build has some crazy issues and resetting might cause problems. This can happen with the Insider builds too.
  • Finally a update
  • Mobile was on 15055 and desktop on 15061. Hardly a big difference.
  • Don't mind him. He's always complaining that Mobile gets no love.
  • What's supposed to be the timeframe for a "consumer" release of the update for mobile?
  • Well, the desktop release is supposedly in early to mid-April, and apparently the Mobile and Xbox release shouldn't be far behind. I'm guessing mid to late April for us consumers?
  • Any knows if this solves the issue of apps like Skype for Business, LinkedIn and MS Teams from hanging at startup?
  • What's new on windows 10 creators update for windows phone pls explain in list thanx :)
  • Windows 10 Mobile RS2: 1. New stock sounds
    2. Stock apps can be uninstalled
    3. Remove words from the Dictionary
    4. Edge 15 – Book support, better HTML standards
    5. Settings app: new Apps section, more Icons for a few settings, a few things moved here and there, some new options
    6. You can reset Apps now, in case they misbehave
    7. New Bluetooth GAAT profile
    8. Glance Screen can be turned off during charging
    9. You can lock the phone when using Continuum
    10. Windows Hello – the animation is shorter
    11. Cortana knows a few new tricks
    12. UUP for faster updates downloads and installations
    13. OS is up to 20% faster on CPUs such as SD808/810/820
    14. 3rd party Alarm apps now break through Quiet Hours
  • Thanks for this description.
  • Can't forget the new share icon
  • Thats the most ground breaking feature from MS in a long time
  • Well,,,, it does make more sense, and look better, than the old one........
  • The Windows Hello animation isn't actually changed in the Creators Update.
  • improvements in wifi too and start screen is more responsive than RS1
  • Wooioooooooooooo. Ignore that "i" in the middle. I'm too lazy to fix it.
  • LOL
  • But not too lazy to write a whole sentence after that?
  • Hopefully they have fixed blank screen issue of lock screen and green flickering issue while playing a video in edge or skype chat
  • Just installed on my Lumia Icon. Now was able to update apps like people, photos, store, etc., so far so good. Keeping fingers crossed.
  • I still have Bluetooth issues on mobile... Is it just me?
  • What kind of issues? Maybe you should ask this question in the Forums.
  • I haven't done this new release, but I've certainly had issues with BTon moble ever since getting W10. Lumia 950. Have to toggle BT on and off often several times to get a conneciton to my Skoda Yeti or my Bose 35's. A real pain. By comparison when on W8.1 on 1020 it was seamless. I was just about to leap back into insider build given this report, but now I'm not so keen having dseen your post. Used to be an avid fast ring insider, but got a bit burmed and sick of hard rests. Just on slow now.
  • Mobile folks: What apps work with this build, that didn't work on earlier 15000-level builds?
  • Everything works fine. Now you can uninstall default apps too
  • Great improvements! Enough to make me wanna switch to Fast Ring, although the Slow ring isn't THAT slow lately...
  • No known issues listed?
  • Really hope those spontaneous reboots get fixed... it's extremely annoying. 950XL
  • Ditto
  • Be careful. Updating to 15063 bricked my Lumia 950. The update went flawlessly, until I was prompted that Windows Insider needed to be reconfigured, which required a reboot. Upon that 2nd reboot, my device no longer booted. It would display the MS logo, but then a blue screen. No text, just a blue screen. After a min or two, it would automatically reboot. I needed to recover using the WDRT. Now I'm needing to rebuild it back.
  • Got the same message on my Lumia 830, but no blue screen. Sorry to hear that it didn't work for you bud. EDIT: Just saw the messages associating your issue to Bitlocker. Damn :-(
  • Exactly what just happened to me on my 950xl. So annoyed
  • I was having really bad reboot issues. I even hard reset and still had same problems. Turned out my battery was dying. Ever since I got a replacement battery my L950 has been sold.
  • Where did you get a replacement battery?? My battery life has been REALLY poor and I don't think the blame is 100% on living the "Fast Ring" Life! :)
  • So you think my issues will be solved replacing the battery? It still does the random rebooting. When it reboots, it drops battery percentage significantly.
  • Also,how did you discover you had a battery issue?
  • Windows 10 mobile users, be careful. Updating to 15063 bricked my Lumia 950. The update went flawlessly, until I was prompted that Windows Insider needed to be reconfigured, which required a reboot. Upon that 2nd reboot, my device no longer booted. It would display the MS logo, but then a blue screen. No text, just a blue screen. After a min or two, it would automatically reboot. I needed to recover using the WDRT. Now I'm needing to rebuild it back.
  • U have enabled device encryption option from settings thats why you are facing blue screen bit locker key error. Only wdrt can fix it. :(
  • Well, Device Encryption has not been an issue with every RS2 update I have applied, and I have been on the Fast Ring well before RS1. And Device Encryption (aka BitLocker) was enabled, as it is a corp policy.
  • I have faced this blue screen error while encryption was enabled. Now its ok after couple of builds on fast ring.
  • My Lumia 735 got bricked 6 months ago because I had encryption on. Never again...
  • Got the same damn thing and its 11pm, too late to WDRT it. Wondering why it prompted to restart to use insider as in already on it.
  • Because there is new option in insider i.e release preview
  • Same for me. Never happened before today. I am just seeing the BSOD. I am installing WDRT now. I hope this works. Yuck!   -Rich
  • Speech packs was a good fix.The install of new speech packs had been prevented for months... This enables me to finally do a Hard Reset without a Restore on my phone, because I know that I will be able to download the other languages I need afterwards. Maybe I'll just wait another couple of builds....  Store App, Outlook, OneNote being able to successfully update again is a good fix too. Will look to see if WhatsApp performance/behavior improves... Fellow with the BlueTooth Issue.... I had that fixed back in 15058... 
  • This is the last week folks. Who else thinks either this or 15065 is RTM?
  • 15070 just to be safe.
  • Could this be RTM?
  • 😥 🤤 😭 Error 0x80070273 in my Lumia 1520. Previous 15051 in slow ring also end up in same error. Any solution?
  • Soft reset. Check Insider settings. Tap on your account. Reselect your account. Go back to Check for Updates. It should work now.
  • No I tried that already. Soft reset many times and checked. Unlinked insider account and relinked. Right now in Slow 15047. There is no option to opt out from insider like 1607 builds. I don't want to go with hard resetting.
  • WDRT!!! I had to do it on my icon when upgrading to 15051 last week...
  • After skipping 2 builds, I think I 'll get this one.
  • Edge bug still not fixed. Same bug reported 4 times now... The video playback flicking one.
  • If you're going to say edge has a bug at least mention what bug you're referring too!
  • Yes green flickering bug in skype video call and edge browser video playback still exist.. Even on insta too
  • The problem of some apps loading without opening should be ironed out through these builds, we just can't keep rolling back to 8.1 due to an app or two.
  • Don't restart if it prompts you too to be on insider build cause you'll be looking at a nice blue screen till it shuts off.
  • I did and no blue screen for me please check your device encryption settings and turn it off
  • You can't check once the blue screen comes on. Its in a reboot cycle and not possible unless you use WDRT.
  • Those who are having problems with wdrt or stucked in a restart cycles
    Follow the steps:
    1) download your lumia firmware from
    Lumiafirmware.com
    2)download windows internal tool
    http://www.wpinternals.net/index.php/downloads
    3)Run the windows internal tool and put your .ffu file in flash section.
    Now it will detect your phone and flash it successfully.
  • Kinal, do I just need to download the FFu file? I am not even sure which variant of the 950 I own. I don't have the original box with me.   I think it may be this one - Phone model: Lumia 950 Dual SIM PackageTitle: RM-1118 GLOBAL BLACK SWAP
    Product Code: 059X4F5
    manufacturerHardwareModel: RM-1118 I guess I should verify which variant first?   -Rich  
  • Download your country variant it contains your language as default
  • OK, inside my L950 I can se the code - 059X5G2 - RM-1118 VAR NAM 4R CV   Do I download just this file?   RM1118_1078.0053.10586.13169.15358.034F06_retail_prod_signed.ffu   -Rich
  • Yes thats the one for you
  • Ok, I have the ffu file anf now the WPInternals.exe cannot connect to my L950. I have tried a soft reset while the phone is still plugged in.   -Rich
  • ok, now run windows internal.exe and select flash option and then select (flash orignal FFU) then select the ffu file and connect your phone via USB restart it and then click on flasf ffu image buttton
  • still if you have any problem then go to manual mode in phone catagory and boot it into FLASH mode. then try further steps i mentioned below  
  • you can also backup your main OS partition so that you can flash your phone easily to the current latest build :) enjoy bro
  • This software is better than wdrt in many ways
  • my phone is stuck on the red screen with the 2 arrows that make a box. I got everything else ready but it doesn't recognize the phone. when I do a reboot it doesn't make it to the first windows logo.
  • Oh your phone is stuck on flash mode. Try to connect to windows internal tool and reboot to the normal mode.
  • I can't if it doesn't give the pc enough time to recognize it. this phone is...fawked and no way to have it stay on long enough to get recognized. Off to att device repair center I go tomorrow.
  • It is somewhat tricky. You have to press flash button as soon as your phone gets recognized. Thus trick work on my lumia 540
  • I'd done it before but it's just not working on this phone. I don't have time to mess with it any more cause I use it for work. I gotta use my tablet for now. But I have all that other set up if something goes wrong again.
  • Beware this build. My 950xl worked fine. My desktop got BSOD and could not be recovered. Cannot boot into Normal Mode desktop. BSOD after password is entered. Was able to boot to safe mode with networking. But cannot go back to previous build, nor refresh. Says missing those. Attempting to uninstall software and programs to get past boot crashing. Edit: After disabling all non-MS items in msconfig and startup items under task manager, I was able to boot to Normal Mode. Attempting to do new build again.
  • Pretty excited about this one. For mobile I mean, they seem to have fixed a few persisting annoying problems such as bluetooth, speech and deleting histories and texts (HORRIBLE!) Hope it's true! Installing.
  • AVOID ON LUMIA 950!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! BLUE SCREEN after update........****
  • Dont turn on device encryption
  • Fine on a 950xl
  • Updates went fine on our 1020, 640, 650, PC and Laptop. No issues. Except that I cannot get Dynamic Lock to work.
  • Oh you still have a 1020 on W10M?  I got a 1020. (not using it) I would like to try w10m on it. :)
  • No issues after updating my 950. Hoping battery life is close to normal with this build.
  • Button resetting doesn't even work. Anybody able to fix the blue screen problem? Now I'm super fùckin passed.
  • Still think i should install on my 950 xl??
  • Dunno man, 3 or so of us 950's already took the hit.
  • Was waiting for this one, the Store was bugging me a bit.
    On a side note, has anyone noticed when switching apps Windows Central be like "I volunteer as a tribute" and is the first one to get dumped from memory, like 90% of the time
  • You can change that by using interop tools to increase your page file from 256mb to 1024mb. Somehow Microsoft has it 256mb for all devices. (even a 3GB RAM phone has 256mb pagefile :/)
  • I've already done that, I can even switch to Facebook relatively fast if it's already open in the background but for some reason WC just gives up way too fast :D I think the issue might be with WC rather than the OS though 
  • How do you do that?. I really want to do it on my phone. 950
  • I got the info from this forum post - http://forums.windowscentral.com/windows-10-mobile-how-guides/452772-3.h... You might need some googling too
  • Thanks bro👍
  • Has anyone Backup then Restored? at least with L950 14939.953 does NOT backup any VPN accesspoints created. THIS needs to be fixed: all VPN accesspoint that user has created needs to be restored as well.. FeedBack hub > yep..
  • Store problem fixed! Language packs problem fixed! But sadly 3 important problem stay same. 1) After taking photo you can't open picture through the camera app. When you click thumbnail pic, black screen comes first. This is very annoying and long time problem. Please fix this issue Microsoft. 2) Notification and Actions page loads very slow. You can't scroll down at first 5-6 seconds. 3) Apps like WhatsApp, Facebook and Messenger opens very slow. Many time loading or resuming warning comes. This 3 major problem is very important. Please fix them for the next update.
  • Those 3 apps are not UWP apps and optimized for windows 10
  • This Mobile build 15063 Causing BSOD on Lumia 640 after restart and then keeps restarting, but working just fine on Lumia 640 XL LTE. Please post it so more users can avoid this situation.
  • Worked fine our 640. And 650 and 1020. No issues.
  • This is absoutely unacceptable from Microsoft at this stage, Insider Preview or not, to release an update that bricks our phones.  950XL; the phone recovery tool does not work, soft and hard resets do not work.  There had better be a fix for this or I'll be driving to Redmond to get a new phone.
  • Unacceptable why? You knew the risks of going Insider. You were warned about not doing this on a daily driver. You were well aware of the possibility of having to format your device, or having it brick on you. And if you didn't, well, too bad. This is development software, for testing only. If production level software has bugs, imagine software that's actively being worked on.
  • Thanks for the pep talk Hannibal Lecture.  I have several test phones that I use, but that doesn't negate the fact that Microsoft's internal testing ring is lacking on many levels and obviously doesn't review and publish critical (and obviously crippling) settings before they push the releases out to the Fast Ring.  It's hard to test phones for them and provide feedback when they send out code that destroys a $500 phone's ROM.  That's what I find unacceptable.
  • Now I'm going to receive hell of downvotes. This will be reaction to your post but also it is going to be meant generally. I'm tired of neverending excusses that this is Insider program and blabla. You know that one of coming soon builds will get status RTM? It is going to happen from this branch. Not from some other magical, hidden, not bugged. And at this point, one or two weeks before final release, it is definitely unacceptable to release a build which will cause phone brick. They should be now at stage, fixing some minor bugs like icon is not showing, some UI glitches and so on. Bugs like unable to boot, phone brick, unable to download updates and so on are totally unacceptable at stage one week before final release. Even it is Insider program, there must be point that all serious bugs are fixed. And not always excussing, that "This is Insider program that's okay". No, its not okay. And please don't start telling me, like, you know what it is to write OS and so on. I know that. This is not their first OS build ever. Just remember back, when 7 was developed. There wasn't such thing like Insider program. I'm big fan of MS and their technologies, but I hate the company leaders, and compay leadership generally last 5+ years. Their thinking is that we will release middling software and since we are in internet era, we will provide update few weeks/months later. But often this is not going happen. I hate nowdays managers. They are making too big pressure on programmers, by giving unrealistic deadlines and number of features that thay have to implement. And that will produce halfbaken softwares, which will be fixed later. This is the main idea of managers, "Will be fixed later".
  • Updated my 950 and got the request to reboot due to new insider settings. Now I can also select Release Preview - so this seem to be the final release. Works like a charm, really snappy. Whatsapp and Telegram (re)start instantly. Good job MS and the direction is absolutely right!!!!!!!
  • You wouldn't be doing your happy dance if your encryption setting had been enabled.
  • On my 950 and working fine so far. I've done the BSOD before and it scared the crap outa me. But it all had to do with device encryption issue. Fixed with WDRT.
  • WDRT doesn't work this time unless you know something we don't, some incantation perhaps?
  • Not sure if it will work for you but try removing the device drivers for your phone from your PC. This allowed my PC to see my 950XL and allow WDRT to work and reset the phone for me.
  • I got it to work for my by doing a soft reset on the phone whilst connected to WDRT on the pc. When it restarted it saw the phone and downloaded the software. Then I had to do the same when it was time to install it
  • Just got the dreaded "We need to restart your phone before . . .". Not sure what to do now.😒
  • Good luck, I've had none so far and have tried everything.
  • If you don't have encryption turned on, you shouldn't worry, I got the same message, just restarted the phone and was back to using in in less than a minute
  • Watermark status on PC: Absent This looks like it might be the RTM build.
  • Also you have the option of Release preview insider, only the production releases have that option
  • Evertything fine on my L950XL. Except that the Insiders setting request this reboot. Didn't touch it yet. Anybody did this on a L950XL without problem? (No encryption here)
  • 950XL with Device Encryption ON, SD encryption OFF.
    No problem, even after confirming Insiders.
  • Alright, I'll give it a shot.... tonight.
  • Still blank screen bug exist while unlocking phone ...please do something for it MS its really annoying
    Let me know if anyone still have this random blank screen bug.
  • Had this on production, yet to see it on the current slow ring build.
  • RTM is by the corner: after install, we are now asked to confirm the ring we want to stay/be in : FR/SR or RP. This wasn't possible on Fast Ring for a very long time.
  • If it's giving the Release preview option then it 99.9% must be rtm
  • So wich option is the best now?
  • According to Sarkar and others, the guy was talking out his ass. It isn't on Release preview. However it does add that option. Don't get too excited. RTM for mobile is a ways off. Which is fine. Because there are obviously still some issues that need addressed.
  • Seeing Release Preview is a little suggestive though, don't you think? Is this fast ring build good as a DD? Only need browsing search calls and texts, emails to work 100%.
  • Yes lots of minor bugs and glitches are there
  • Yes its suitable as a Daily Driver? Maybe ill upgrade my 1520 and Test drive it with that.
  • Been using this build and last build as daily driver on my Lumia Icon.
  • I predicted RTM would be 15064, looks like I'm close...
  • Help. Has anyone tried to add device under Bluetooth on 950xl on this build? The screen seems to do something but fails and now I cannot pair a device. Can someone check please. Thanks
  • Restart phone. This happens to me on release preview. I just keep trying. After 5-10 fails I restart bt
  • I had this issue two builds back, then the last build fixed the problem. Then, the current build (15055) broke this feature again. And I have not been able to address the issue by rebooting or by turning BT off/on. I am just now pondering whether to update to the subject build. Oddly, the phone will search for and locate other BT devices such as DLNA speakers and printer.
  • And what about missing animations. When I open apps I see loading screen instead of opening animation.
  • I can't turn off device encryption... I'm on build 15047, Lumia 640, and whenever I try to turn off SD encryption it just goes back on and does nothing. Guess I'll pause insider builds until I backup my SD and have the time to WDRT if necessary.
  • Ok, got to turn it off. It just takes a while. Let it rest for about 30 minutes and eventually it'll turn device encryption off.
  • Does anbody know how SD encryption Works? If I Plug it in my PC it says SD is corrupted, and asks to format it. I havn't tried it yet, but maybe I'll try to quick format it and then see if there are recoverable files with tools such as Recuva...
  • The SD-card should not appear as corrupted. If properly encrypted, when insterted in a PC, it should ask for a Bitlocker key (from a USB).
  • But then, what would be the key? The pin I use to unlock the phone? Other than that, I dont know what it would ask to unlock the SD on a PC... Has that happened to you personally?
  • For those who installed 15063, is it viable as a daily driver ?
  • Some random bugs are there like blank screen etc
    I recommend you to stay on production.
  • I'm using it as such. No issues.
  • Seems to be on par or better than Production. Finally!
  • Known issues??? I got the latest release preview on my 950XL and it's pretty buggy. Like freezes when I get a text. So wondering if this build is good I may swap buggy for buggy lol. Get some new features out of the deal. Is it a good DD? I know it's almost ready for prime time.......
  • Those who are having problems with wdrt or stucked in a restart cycles
    Follow the steps:
    1) download your lumia firmware from
    Lumiafirmware.com
    2)download windows internal tool

  • Nice build. Little bit problem's on my Lumia 730. No problems with daily use.
  • Downloading on 1520 and 950 XL
  • Anyone downloaded to 735 yet? How did it go?
  • Still not working windows hello in my Lumia 640xl
  • Lumia 640XL doesn't have Windows Hello.
  • My Screen goes black when I unlock my phone(Lumia 540)...This bug is very irritating and Microsoft is not fixing it..
  • Same bug same model ..im with you bro
  • Is anyone still receiving this update in Insider Fast? I'm on Fast and didn't get it yet, and there are so many BSOD reports, and that even WDRT won't solve that I suspect they pulled it...
  • Me to until today and cannot as device under Bluetooth settings on 950xl
  • WDRT is Not working for me. I have the BSOD. I see the Error There was a problem downloading the software package. Downloading variant file failed. I also tried Hard Resetting but no luck either. My L950 keeps rebooting with the BSOD. I probably do have Encryption turned ON due to corporate Outlook mailbox. Any other suggestions?   -Rich
  • Check above, the last post from kunal tipre1
  • So just to be sure I don't brick my 950XL... since the Insider message just came on and asked for reboot.
    I had just turned off my "Device Encryption" setting, this will make it go smoothly now? I've never even touched this option, didn't know it existed. Also it seems like it's only 950 being affected here. Haven't heard much bricked phones from 950XL users
  • I guess you don't have much of a choice, other than having all the tools ready in case something goes wrong, and pressing Reboot..
  • Well most threads I've read here said that it's because the device encryption option is on. So I'm assuming turning that off prior to reboot should do the trick... But I guess you're right, I just have to reboot and see what happens
  • I've turned both SD card and device encryption off, to try and see if the update goes well. The problem is that it still doesn't show up on my phone...
  • You mean the update has not showed up on your phone yet? Or the reboot message?
  • The update. Maybe it's because I paused Fast builds for a few days, and now it may take sometime until I start receiving them agan.
  • I see, well good luck! I'm about to press that Reboot button
  • Confirmed Lumia 950XL with Device Encryption off and SD card out, rebooted successfully with the Insider message
  • And? How did it go? I'm still hesitant.
  • Went smoothly after the mentioned steps above. I don't know if they were necessary but better safe than sorry
  • Alright. Will do like that. Later...
  • Turn off sd card? How? 
  • I safely removed the card from storage and took it out before restarting.
  • I don't know uf you have to actually remove the sdcard, only turn off encryption... But I'll test mine with SD card inserted when I get the update.
  • Sounds good, i just wanted to be as safe as possible lol...
  • Same problem
    It get locked by Bitlocker
  • 950xl BSOD here....had to use WDRT to reflash and start over.
  • Yikes. Sorry to hear that.
  • Well, that was quick.
  • Flawless update for my 950, 950XL, and Idol 4S. All have device and SD encryption enabled. Very happy with this build. All major problems seem to have been addressed. Can be a contender for RTM.
  • Same experience. Flawless update. Rebooted as per the insider message with no issues.
  • Just chiming in with a 'me too'. Lumia 950XL. Everything seems to be working very well. Side note: Phone seems to be running 'cooler', which usually means I'm getting great battery life. Can't know for sure this soon, but I'm cautiously optimistic.
  • Yess, same here. :) Battery use from ~6 % hour to ~2,5%. A lot faster and more stable. :D   And apps working again, :) (few where very very slow) like 30 sec wait time. Now 1 sec. :) 
  • Stuck at blue screen without text. Just blue screen after I installed the update.
  • Reset phone and reinstalled updates
  • Finished updating my L950XL and FierceXL. All went smooth as glass, no residual effects, burps or crashes. Sweet build...about time. THX MS.
  • Smooth as glass is exactly how I'd describe this build 😀 Hp Elite x3.
  • Just update my L950XL. Phone was still auto rebooting... Did a phone reset.. No issues so far..
  • What's the night mode? I am seeing more people are asking. Sorry for offtopic.
  • Night mode just give you a softer tone for the screen rather than the bright light... I think this is for night time using.. It should be easier on the eyes
  • Thanks a lot for answering my comment. But isn't that auto brightness do the same task ? Any new awesome feature we can expect in this creator update or the next update ?
  • No, this allows the level of blue light (which strains the eyes and causes sleep problems) to be adjusted at night when it gets dark
  • Night mode adjusts color, not brightness. Less blue in evening.
  • IPhone have night mode you can check it out
  • Hmmmm, a nicer build but there is a bug with Miracast/Wireless Continuum. The connect option from the action centre doesn't work(simply flashes the screen) and when you try via continuum, tapping connect does nothing. Hoping next build fixes this as i use this feature a fair bit.
  • On my lumia 650 wireless continumm working properly
  • Hmmm, its really weird, when i tap the connect icon, it instantly crashes. Luckily wired continuum works but wireless is definitely needed..
  • Okay, downloaded on my 735 so we shall see.
  • Liking the updates. My keyboard is still doing that stuttering thing though. :/
  • L830, after update to 15063 Store APp does not connect to the internet anymore. All other apps working as designed (Edge, Skype, etc)
  • Everything perfect on 950 smooth as glass
  • I got problem with this build
    After installing my lumia 650 stacks blue screen
    After reinstalling...
    Now ok
  • Not seeing any.
  • I am seeing more bugs, reset and now I am unable to log in on this build
  • Probably the ms logon problem that's happened today. Try again later.
  • Lol, there isn't much new features for Mobile but so many fixes. Looks like they are breaking more old things than creating new ones.
  • Hiii
  • Argh, phone is borked, so close to RTM I just figured all would be goo
  • Again WhatsApp, telegram and other apps are not working
  • I wish I could downgrade to a build that can allow WhatsApp and telegram to open. It's been 3 weeks now with about 3 builds without fixing this issue.
  • This build broke continuum and Wi-Fi for me. Scary thought how close to rtm this is. YCS
  • I think 15063 might be RTM. Everything works so good. Even Edge doesn't crash anymore and is good enough to replace Chrome. Taskbar flyouts like Notification Center and Calendar are snappy too. No hesitation at all.😘
  • Yeah its working faster
  • So far I have noticed multi tasking is not smooth on 950XL. It heats up and battery drain reaches %60 just from WiFi and Microsoft Edge.
    Lumia 640 cannot click on extras in settings. They do not open.
    At least 2 more builds should be released before RTM.
    Also, Edge ram management is bad. Pages reload after opening them again.
  • My sd card is blocked by Bitlocker and i dont have password and recovery key
    Someone help me
  • I'm stuck on build 15051. How to get the update? I'm on fast ring.
  • I had the same problem ... My L930 was stuck on 15051 for quite some time, no updates were found even though there was already 15063 out (and I was on fast ring). Then I tried - out of couriosity - switching region and language to USA / English (I live in Europe) and the phone updated to build 15063.2 immediately. You can then switch back to your region and language when the update is done and all is fine. Hope it helps!
  • Greater if Astoria is back
  • Astoria will hinder performance like those ios apps. Uwp has the power to embrace this platform.
  • Had numerous issues on Lumia Icon with Bluetooth (could not add new devices, chunky stop/start), looks like it was just time for a hard reset. Much better now, problems gone, overall stable and responsive. Nothing of note broken on PC, running great.
  • I have the Lumia 950. When I updated to 15063, the phone restarted and then a blue screen. No matter what soft or hard resets I made, I could not recover and I always got the blue screen.
    Finally, I managed to recover it back, using Windows Phone Recovery Tool.
  • Skype stopped working after build15063 it is not updating as well???
  • Now skype comes out from preview tag
  • Battery performance is very bad in this build. Constant heating near camera
  • Agree heating is back, even in light use, seemed gone in former builds.
    But otherwise phone runs quiet well.
  • This sucks, my Bluetooth connection doesn't work
  • U can't add a device or pair one?
  • Done a hard reset and it works now.
  • As per the leaks In Rs3 build they will mostly work on transparent glass like UI and customizable colour in theme for mobile.
  • Continuum doesn't start and also connect in actioncenter doesn' work anymore.
    ...Hard Reset solved the Problems :)
  • Problem opening Facebook beta after installing the latest build 15063 for my 950XL.
  • I read in some user forums people describing the same reboot issues I was having. I also was able to swap my wife's battery with mine and it worked perfectly after. There are no official replacements, I had to get a third party one from Amazon.
