Microsoft is rolling out Windows 10 Mobile Build 15254.249 to Windows Insiders in the Fast and Slow Ring, while the users who are in production ring will be receiving Build 15254.248. Just when you thought Windows 10 Mobile Insiders Program is dead, here’s Microsoft rolling out a new cumulative update for the testers.
Build 15254.249 is basically a cumulative update for Windows Insiders as part of Windows 10 Mobile February patching cycle. While the Windows 10 Mobile Build 15254.248 comes one change, we are not aware of any improvements included in Build 15254.249. Though it comes with minor changes on mobile devices, for example, Microsoft has fixed the broken ‘Windows Update’ name in Settings.
While on the other hand, Windows 10 Mobile February cumulative update comes with one bug in Microsoft Edge where the browser would fail to open the PDF documents. The Microsoft Edge browser has become the PDF viewer for phones and PCs ever since Microsoft pulled the PDF Reader app.
While Microsoft has pulled the PDF Reader from the Store, the company says the only way to deal with this problem is to download the PDF Reader app. “Microsoft is working on a resolution and will provide an update in an upcoming release,” the company says.
With February update, Microsoft has addressed an issue where the touchscreen would remain unresponsive after the first boot. “In most cases, using the Power button to turn the screen off and on restores responsiveness. Occasionally, at startup, the touch screen would remain unresponsive, and the only recovery mechanism was to restart the phone,” Microsoft explains the issue.
The update has only one known issue and you should not expect emergency hotfix to be shipped anytime soon as Microsoft barely cares about phones these days. Microsoft will address this bug next month as part of the March Patch Tuesday cycle.
