It’s time for yet another Insider build of Windows 10 Mobile. Dona pressed the big red button moments ago, releasing the proverbial Kraken with Windows Insider Build 14371 – another entry in the saga of Insider builds meant to squash all of the remaining bugs in the Windows 10 Anniversary Update before its release in just a few weeks. As you might imagine with a build dedicated to getting rid of bugs, there’s still a few unsolved issues laying around that Microsoft is keeping a keen eye on.

Here’s the short list of known issues on Windows 10 Mobile this time around: (note: updated with the correct known issues for build 14371)

  • We are changing the backup format for Windows 10 Mobile devices to reduce the size of the backup stored in OneDrive. As a result, if you do a backup on a device running the latest Windows 10 Mobile Insider Preview builds and move back to the released version of Windows 10 Mobile (Build 10586) and restore from your backup – your Start screen layout won’t restore and remain the default Start layout. Your previous backup also gets overwritten. If you need to go back to Build 10586 temporarily, once you are on Build 10586 you should disable backup so it doesn’t overwrite the good backup from Windows 10 Mobile Insider Preview builds.
  • We’re investigating decreases in battery life on older devices such as the Lumia 830, 930, and 1520 (devices with SoC 8974 chipsets).
  • We’re investigating Wi-Fi disconnect issues – if you are experiencing an issue with your Wi-Fi disconnecting, please see this forum post and make sure to upvote Wi-Fi disconnecting issues in the Feedback Hub.

Keep these bugs in mind as you test out the new build – Microsoft knows about them already, so you don’t need to rush off to the Feedback app when they rear their ugly heads. If you see any other bugs, feel free to make sure the team knows about them so they can clean up the experience for next time.
