While Microsoft has discontinued Windows 10 Mobile operating system, the company is still releasing security and quality updates for the platform. The Windows 10 Mobile Build 15063.1029 is now rolling out to all supported mobile devices with Creators Update. Build 15063.1029 for Windows 10 Mobile is not a big update as it only includes the security-related bug fixes and improves the overall performance.
Microsoft has completed the rollout of the Patch Tuesday updates for PCs, while the cumulative update is still rolling out for Windows Phones. The company has released 15063.1029 for handsets running with Windows 10 Mobile version 1703. Not only version 1703 but the Windows 10 Mobile Fall Creators Update devices are also receiving a new update.
As you might have guessed already, the update does not bring any new features or major improvements to the platform. The changelog is mostly about PC-related things, so it is safe to assume that this build has no noticeable changes. The changelog does mention that the company has fixed some security bugs in Microsoft Edge and a bug affecting the time zone information on some systems.
If you’re on the Release Preview Ring or the Production Ring (non-Insiders), the update will show up on your phone. However, the update is still not available on Fast Ring handsets. Microsoft is expected to begin rolling out the April’s Patch Update for Fast Ring Insiders after a small delay. By the looks of things, this update should be available for you later this week.
In the past few weeks, the executive of Microsoft shared their views on failed Windows Phone platform. “Windows Phone died because it would have been almost impossible to beat Google or Apple without carriers and handset manufacturers embracing it. We got second string devices and almost no support at the carriers. They couldn’t keep burning money to please Sisyfus,” Microsoft’s former employee Watson explained.
