The various versions of Windows 10 Mobile are getting their Patch Tuesday updates a little later than usual this month. Late last week, the latest version of Windows 10 Mobile (version 1709) finally received a fix for the issue with PDFs that couldn’t be opened in Microsoft Edge. Today, Microsoft is rolling out a similar update for users still running the Windows 10 Mobile Creators update (via Neowin).
To be clear, only old Windows phones such as the Lumia 640, 640 XL (as well as the 735, 830 and 930 if enrolled in the Release Preview Ring) remain stuck on Windows 10 Mobile version 1703. If you’re in that boat, you can now download the build 15063.966 on your handset. We just installed it on an old Lumia 735, and we can confirm that you can PDFs now open in Edge without any issue.
The changelog for this latest Patch Tuesday update mostly mentions PC fixes, and Microsoft didn’t mention anything specific for mobile except this PDF bug. As usual, let us know if you notice any improvements after installing this build.Further reading: Creators Update, Microsoft Edge, Patch Tuesday, PDF, Windows 10 Mobile
