Microsoft has rolled out a new Windows 10 Mobile cumulative build for all supported Windows Phones whether Insider or not.

The update is likely a security update to address the Spectre and Meltdown issue, with Microsoft saying:

  • This build includes all the improvements from KB4056891.

KB4056891 reads:

  • Security updates to Internet Explorer, Microsoft Scripting Engine, Microsoft Edge, Windows Graphics, Windows Kernel, Windows Subsystem for Linux, and the Windows SMB Server.
