Windows 10 Mobile may be far from the front line of Microsoft's 2019 mobile plans, but underneath the hood the foundations are receiving kernel and security fixes. There's a new update today (6pm, GMT) for all phones currently running the 1709 branch ('Fall Creators Update'), so go grab it now. Similarly, there's an update out for all phones running the 1703 branch ('Creators Update'), though this is close to now close to its support 'end'.

The upshot is that you can now (e.g.) tell Cortana to add such and such a task "to your To-Do list".
