Gabe Aul of the Windows team has finally pushed the big red button on what is believed to the RTM build of Windows 10 Mobile. Windows 10 Mobile Insiders can now start downloading build 10586 to their devices.

According to the Windows team’s notes this build is coming with a handful of useful fixes that include:
- We have fixed the issue that caused the Start experience to become corrupted (garbled) after upgrading and restoring a backup from a phone that had a different resolution.
- You should now be able to set your default save locations via Settings > System > Storage, and it will correctly reflect the current storage settings. Your SD card should no longer show up as a garbled name in Storage settings either.
- Moving apps to an SD card should no longer cause those apps to crash.
- We’ve made improvements to the Messaging + Skype app – through both app updates via the Store and also on the server side.
- This should be seeing less resuming/loading text when switching apps.
- The physical camera button should be working again if it wasn’t working for you before.
- Apps and games should download from the Store more reliably.
With the release of Microsoft’s new flagships being reserved for a smaller rollout to the general public, this new build should suffice for the many who are still waiting to get their hands on a new phone experience.
Happy downloading, Insiders!Further reading: Microsoft, update, Windows 10 Mobile, Windows 10 Mobile build 10586
