Windows 10 Mobile news recap: update process, build 10080 for slow ring testers

It’s been one crazy week with Windows 10 related news. Let’s take this time to look back at last week’s hot stories in a feature we like to call “Windows 10 Mobile news recap.”

Earlier this week, WinBeta received clarification from a Microsoft spokesperson regarding the Windows 10 Mobile update process. “Microsoft will continue to work closely with mobile operators on testing to meet and exceed quality bars. The input of mobile operators is invaluable to the testing process. Microsoft will use their input, as well as input from the millions of Windows Insiders, to decide when to send out mobile updates to Windows 10 devices.”

No new build of Windows 10 Mobile was released this past week, but we did learn that build 10080 would likely not be released to slow ring testers due to numerous bugs and complaints. Typically, Microsoft will release a build to the fast ring and then release it to the slow ring a week or two later with a few fixes in tow. In this case, it looks like slow ring participants will likely get a newer build of Windows 10 Mobile. Again, Aul said 10080 “isn’t likely” to be released, but there is still a chance that Microsoft may roll it out. 

Stay tuned for another exciting week of Windows 10 news!
