Microsoft today released a new cumulative update for Windows 10 users on PCs and Mobile devices. The software giant is rolling out KB3194798 for PCs, which brings the OS number up to 14393.321. As for Mobile devices, users should also be able to grab the update from Windows Update. As you may have already guessed, the update doesn’t include any new features but there are some interesting improvements. Microsoft has improved the reliability of Bluetooth and the storage file system, which I am sure a lot of users will appreciate. More notably though, Microsoft says that it has addressed an issue which caused high CPU usage on Windows 10 Mobile — this will presumably improve performance on low-end Windows 10 Mobile devices.

Here’s the full changelog:

  • Improved reliability of Bluetooth and storage file system.
  • Addressed issue causing printer drivers to not install correctly after installing security update KB317005.
  • Addressed issue causing sign-in errors if a password is entered incorrectly or a new password doesn’t meet password complexity requirements after installing security update KB3167679.
  • Addressed issue that required users to log out and log back in before using the application they installed using the Windows installer (MSI).
  • Improved support for networks by adding new entries to the Access Point Name (APN) database.
  • Addressed issue that was causing excessive battery drain on Windows 10 Mobile when connected to Wi-Fi.
  • Addressed issue in which setting up both fingerprint and iris recognition sometimes causes the sign-in to fail on Windows 10 Mobile.
  • Addressed issue that was causing high CPU usage on Windows 10 Mobile.
  • Addressed additional issues with multimedia playback, revised daylight saving time, authentication, Internet Explorer 11, and Windows Shell.
  • Security updates to Microsoft Edge, Internet Explorer 11, Windows registry, and diagnostics hub.

To download the update, navigate to Windows Update in the Settings app on your Windows 10 PC or Mobile device.
