Windows Mobile Build 10149 fixes several bugs in the OS and adds a but of refinement here and there. One such feature – albeit one that was technically added in the previous build – is that of reachability.

Here’s a short video showing it off on an Icon.
The Windows 10 Mobile UX had caused some contention with its previous disposal of pivots and swipe gestures OS wide, compounded by the claims of a former Microsoft employee that swipe gestures were too confusing.
Forunately, in current builds, Microsoft has taken the time to optimize the current Windows UI for one handed use, and reachability is just one of its concessions.
