Windows 10 Mobile updates for '1703' and '1709' - October 2018

icon

Windows 10 Mobile build 15254.538 (from .530) for all phones currently running the 1709 branch ('Fall Creators Update') is fresh out today, so go grab it now. Similarly, build 15063.1390 (from .1324) is out for all phones running the 1703 branch ('Creators Update'). Rather surprising is an update for the Anniversary Update, even though it's now 'out of support'!

Confirmation of W10M Anniversary Update End-Of-Support date

icon

As was expected, Microsoft's preparing to cut users on Windows 10 Mobile Anniversary Update loose in terms of security updates, with no 'Patch Tuesday' update available in October (this month's was the last one ever for this branch). More details below, though hopefully most AAWP readers have heeded my advice over the years (first Insiders, then using a registry hack) and have any affected older devices already on later branches.

Windows 10 Mobile monthly updates for all - September 2018

icon

People think of Windows 10 Mobile being dead. Not yet. We're still looking at over a year of support in terms of monthly patches and fixes for Windows 10 Mobile 'Fall Creators Update'. And build 15254.530 (from .527) is fresh out today, so go grab it for all phones currently on the 'Fall Creators Update'. And with similar patches and fixes for other Windows 10 Mobile branches.

'No more stock' of the Wileyfox Pro

icon

The Wileyfox Pro (WFP for short) had an interesting life, which I'll try and summarise below, based on fragments I've pieced together for a rough timeline. But sales have now effectively stopped, since the device has sold out and another production run isn't planned. [Edit: see update below!]

The Wileyfox Pro gets official Fall Creators Update provisioning

icon

As with the Alcatel IDOL 4 Pro (now sorted out), official provisioning for the Wileyfox Pro for the Fall Creators Update (Windows 10 Mobile branch 1709) had been delayed, probably for similar reasons*. Happily, the provisioning database has now been patched, to allow owners of the new Wileyfox Pro to update over the air to FCU and thus enjoy the full support period promised by Wileyfox to businesses.

The Surface Go - thinner, smaller, lighter

icon

Overnight (UK time), Microsoft took the wraps off the Surface Go - not strictly a phone, so not AAWP's core focus, but it has LTE and is definitely of interest as another addition to the growing Surface hardware line-up. And who knows, maybe a Surface Mobile late this year or early in 2019? Surface Go is a low cost, smaller Windows 10 hybrid and will be of special interest in education and around the home.

And build 15254.401 (from .369) is fresh out today, so go grab it for all phones currently on the 'Fall Creators Update'. Meanwhile the Creators Update branch gets its regular patches and the Anniversary Update gets a first 'extension' patch.
