Windows 10 Mobile’s latest Insider build includes updated version number

Microsoft released a new build of Windows 10 Mobile to Windows Insiders recently with a couple of new features and some improvements. Today, the company is releasing another build, 16252, which comes with some more fixes and improvements. But it also includes a new version number for the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update release: 1709. Microsoft updated the version number for PC builds just earlier this week, and the change coming to the Mobile builds aren’t anything surprising to see.

Here’s the full changelog for build 16252:

  • This build includes all the improvements from KB4038788.
  • In preparation for the release of the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update, the product version number has been updated to 1709 just like PC.
  • We fixed an issue where, on powering the screen off/on, high demand for CPU could cause several apps to crash. Background processing of photos is an example of high CPU demand. In a photo shoot session, you may have seen the Camera app crash.
  • We fixed an issue with the Messaging app where conversation text was displayed incorrectly. Thanks to our Insiders that quickly highlighted this issue.
