Microsoft set to drop support for classic Windows Phone apps

Soon Snapdragon 835-powered Windows PCs by Asus HP and Lenovo

"The build is believed to be available to Windows Insiders in the Fast, Slow, and Release Preview rings", Hassan wrote.

For Windows 10 users it's a bit easier. Any device it is installed on will be stuck in a reboot loop and unusable. These early builds were never intended for release on consumer systems and could affect stability-definitely so, in the case of the build that slipped onto some Windows phones.

If your device has downloaded this build but has not installed the build (you see either a "Install" or "Restart now" button under Phone update) - you will have to do a device reset via Settings System About (Do a backup via Settings Update & security Backup FIRST) and then check your Windows Insider Program settings to ensure you're on the right ring. The internal builds managed to make their way on to end user devices due to, "an inadvertent deployment to the engineering system that controls which builds/which rings to push out to insiders".

"For those who received one of these builds on your devices - Microsoft has issued the following advice". For desktop users, the problem is merely an annoyance; the build, taken from a development branch named "RS_EDGE_CASE", appears to work, broadly speaking, but "may include issues that impact usability of your PC".




At present it is unclear exactly how many Windows 10 users have updated this faulty build. Microsoft has said that its analysis shows only a small portion of Insiders got these builds. And check your Windows Insider Program settings.

While Windows 10 testers that installed the PC build, an internal Edge branch, will have to wait for Microsoft to publish a newer build or roll back using the recovery option in Windows 10 settings.

Microsoft is soon going to drop support for the classic Windows Phone apps in a future release of Windows 10 Mobile.

"The new HP digital assistant featuring Cortana is a standalone personal assistant device that does not need to connect to a Windows 10 PC to provide a complete intelligent speaker experience". Dona Sarkar of Windows Insiders community tweeted warning both power users and testers not to update their PCs/mobiles with the new update. So, it's advised to put your device on flight mode to prevent the automatic download until Microsoft pulls off Build 16212 from their servers.
