New Cumulative Update Available For HoloLens

Posted on September 14, 2016 by Rafael Rivera in Hardware with 0


Microsoft started rolling out its latest cumulative update to PCs on Tuesday, and today HoloLens is getting the same treatment.

This is the third update to be delivered to HoloLens this year. And while previous updates introduced a heap of additions covering multi-tasking, input, and voice, this update is primarily focused on the smaller niggling issues throughout the operating system.

Here’s the generic changelog for all Windows platforms:

This update includes quality improvements and security fixes. No new operating system features are being introduced in this update. Key changes include:

  • Improved reliability of Windows Shell, map apps, Internet Explorer 11, and Microsoft Edge.
  • Addressed issue causing push-button reset to not work correctly and roll back on devices with language set to any of the Unicode languages.
  • Addressed issue causing devices to crash after disconnecting an e-reader that was attached to the device.
  • Addressed issue causing devices to not recognize a Secure Digital (SD) card if it is inserted and removed multiple times.
  • Addressed issue causing some apps to not respond to the commands in the app bar in Windows 10 Mobile.
  • Addressed issue that sometimes blocks alarm notifications in Windows 10 Mobile.
  • Improved support for using the camera app in Windows 10 Mobile Enterprise.
  • Addressed additional issues with rendering 4K resolution, missing Start menu tiles when running on battery, Internet Explorer 11, Microsoft Edge, Bluetooth compatibility, graphics, display rotation, app compatibility, Wi-Fi, Feedback Hub, Miracast, Windows Shell, revised daylight saving time, and USB.
  • Security updates to Microsoft Edge, Internet Explorer 11, Microsoft Graphics Component, Windows kernel, and Adobe Flash Player.

We’ll update this post if we hear about any Windows Holographic-specific fixes or additions.
