Latest build of Windows 10 Mobile, 10586.218, now available for Insiders on the Release Preview ring
The latest build of Windows 10 Mobile is now out. Version 10586.218 is currently available for members of the Insider program who subscribe to the Release Preview ring. This ring is for those who want to experience the latest stable version of the newest Windows 10 Mobile build before it rolls out to the public. As a result, we can pretty much assume that this will be the last preview version for this build before it is pushed out to the public.

The OTA files will be sent to phones getting updated to Windows 10 Mobile. It also is earmarked for retail devices. These are non-carrier Windows 10 handsets sitting inside stores. 

According to Microsoft's  community website, the changes include:

  • Reliability, performance and stability improvements.
  • Support for Visual Voicemail on Dual SIM phones.
  • Improvements for Bluetooth connectivity, including the reliability of connecting to and staying connected with Bluetooth devices.
  • Fix for a problem that caused audio playback to get occasionally interrupted in Groove Music and other music apps when phone display was turned off.
  • Improvements for Microsoft Edge browser, including support for configuring a prompt before a file download occurs, support for background downloads, and a fix for a problem where opening a link from an another app wouldn’t load the web page.
  • Reliability improvements for Cortana reading text messages aloud and usability improvements for Quiet Hours feature.
  • Improvements for Store reliability, including a fix for a problem that prevented some apps from being updated and installed.
  • Fix for a problem that occasionally caused some apps to show blank tiles after upgrading from Windows Phone 8.1.
  • Improvements for PC connectivity via USB on some phones that were upgraded from Windows Phone 8.1.
You can try to manually grab the update for your phone by going to Settings > Update & security > Phone update > Check for updates.

"Fix for a problem that caused audio playback to get occasionally interrupted in Groove Music and other music apps when phone display was turned off." Because anyone in the world uses Groove Music.

I suggest phonearena to stop writing about windows phones since they are a disgrace to this industry. WP, its 2016 not 2006 wake up.

I understand WP never got it's spotlight but how can it be such a disgrace? Aside from apps it can take out Android and iOS anytime imho.

It didnt get spotlight for a reason. Anytime? WP UI is as boring as it was 10 years ago. Basically personalization possible, it does remind of a phone, not of a computer. Hell, Windows let you do more modification than WP. That was 20 years ago. I do praise WP camera expirience though on some phones - lumias that is. Best in industry.

Design is subjective, anyone who wants utmost personalization first thing goes to mind is android. Microsoft never promoted WP as the most personalised phone ever, enterprise is it's direction. If you're talking about Windows desktop and comparing it's highly customizable prowess to it's mobile counterpart then you're comparing bananas to oranges. They are in a different league.

I suggest you just don't read, therefore you don't comment on Windows Phone articles. It won't trouble your mind.

Meh. My 1020 is just collecting dust.

So is my 1520. Sitting in a drawer. Huge potential yet appaling software. Reminds me of my N8 and its symbian issues and upgrades. I still use Note 2 and collect dust myself, waiting for something worthy to come along. Im all dusty already.

I've installed this update and my Lumia 640 still has the same annoying bugs and glitches (fixed lower panel, the bug with Google search etc.). And it has been working definitely slower since long-awaited W10 transition. I'll sell it and buy LG Nexus 5X or Galaxy A7.

Oops, looks like I was wrong... It was not that Insider Update, it's some other update. But my phone is still glitchy, as I said.
