Around 200 Windows Insiders Accidentally Received Windows 10 Mobile Build 10536

Phone update

On Friday, Microsoft was expected to push out a new build of Windows 10 Mobile to Windows Insiders. At the last minute, a bug was uncovered that would prevent new builds of Windows 10 Mobile from being installed, so the build was pulled from staging and held from release.

Or so we thought. According to Gabe Aul, around 200 Windows Insiders were able to successfully download the bits.

This happened because the bug was noticed late in the testing phases and the build was already being staged for release; a few users were able to successfully scan for the update. If you currently look for the update on your device, it will not find the bits.

Microsoft has said that they already have a new version being prepared and that they will be pushing out a build of Windows 10 Mobile early next week; a specific date was not stated.

The benefit of waiting until next week, along with fixing the update bug, is that the bug that was present in 10536 where the app store would crash while purchasing apps or buying content in-app, will also be resolved.

Microsoft is expected to finalize Windows 10 Mobile and start shipping it to existing users as well as begin loading it on to new phones likely next month. Because of this, the upcoming builds should be more polished than what we have seen in the past but we will hold judgment until the company pushes down the new build next week.

Once we get a better understanding of when the build will be released, we will be sure to keep you posted.
