With the latest build, Microsoft has fixed the overlay bug in the All Apps list, which is really nice to see. For those unfamiliar, the Release Preview and Slow rings are just a way to get the latest stable Windows 10 Mobile updates and try them out a bit earlier than the public. Of course, if you are not part of the Insider program, you will still get this build in the coming weeks, or even days — however, that will vary depending on your device’s carrier.
If you are an Insider, you can get the latest update by heading over to Settings > Update & Security and checking for updates. Again, make sure you are part of the Windows Insider program and put your device in the Release Preview ring. Happy downloading!
