Windows 10 Mobile Redstone Build 14295 Available – Performance Improvements
Microsoft has started rolling out the Windows 10 Mobile OS to some of its Lumia smartphones that were running on Windows 8.1 and now, the Insiders have received the Redstone Build 14295, which is available for PCs as well.
According to Gabe Aul, head of the Windows Insider program, the new Windows 10 Mobile Redstone Build 14295 will improve the performance of the Lumia smartphones, because it contains “a good set of fixes that insiders will enjoy.” However, Microsoft hasn’t made other changes since the last upgrade, but the users are advised to install this Redstone build so they can enjoy the improved experience.
The previous builds were released only for a limited group of Lumia smartphones that were launched with Windows 10 Mobile: 550, 650, 950, and 950 XL, but Microsoft has given the rest of the Windows Phone owners the possibility to install the Redstone Build 14295, if their devices have at least 512 MB RAM, otherwise, they won’t be eligible for testing out this build.
As for the Lumia 635 smartphone, the good news is that Microsoft will add it to the Windows insider program later, which means that the users will receive builds in the near future.
Aul also added that “these devices will be able to receive new builds from our Development Branch that we release to the Fast and Slow rings. As we stated previously, only devices which are eligible to receive the Windows 10 Mobile upgrade will be able to get preview builds from the Development Branch”. For now, only the insiders enrolled in the fast ring are getting the build and if their feedback will be positive, the users on the slow and preview rings will receive the update as well.
We remind you that the list of supported phones for Windows 10 Mobile Insider Preview includes: Alcatel OneTouch Fierce XL, BLU Win HD W510U, BLU Win HD LTE X150Q, Lumia 430, 435, 532, 535, 540, 550, 635 (1GB), 636 (1GB), 638 (1GB), 640, 640 XL, 650, 730, 735, 830, 930, 950, 950 XL, 1520, MCJ Madosma Q501 and Xiaomi Mi4.
