Microsoft is today rolling out new cumulative updates for
Windows 10 operating system. The company has also released new
updates for all supported versions of Windows 10 Mobile, and
while the company has detailed the improvements for desktop,
the changelog is not available for phones. This is not
surprising as Windows 10 Mobile is in maintenance mode
which means that Microsoft is not focusing on new features or
To line up with today’s Patch Tuesday updates for Windows
10 desktop, Microsoft released build 15254.401 for Windows
10 Mobile handsets running the version 1709. The phones such as
Lumia 950 and HP Elite x3 are part of the rollout.
Microsoft today pushed out Windows 10 Mobile 15254.401 to
the general public across the globe. As you might have guessed
already, the new build 15254.401 for Windows
Phones brings the usual list of security improvements. We
assume that the new build for Windows 10 Mobile also includes
general bug fixes and improvements.
Needless to say, Microsoft is still working on security fixes
for the Windows 10 Mobile version of the Windows 10 Fall
Creators Update. It’s also fitting to see that new security
updates are getting released for Windows 10 Mobile at least
once a month.
The last few years have been rather uneventful for Windows 10
Mobile as Microsoft has stopped developing new updates with
features and major improvements. The situation won’t change as
Microsoft’s Joe Belfiore has already confirmed that the future
Windows 10 Mobile updates will mostly have bug fixes and
Last year, Microsoft’s Joe Belfiore, Corporate Vice
President in the Operating Systems Group officially announced
that Windows 10 Mobile has been discontinued and the company
won’t release any feature updates for the platform. He also
recommended customers to switch to Android and iOS.
Last week we discovered that Microsoft has quietly updated the
support article to announce
Windows 10 Mobile April 2018 Update. While the news excited
many fans, but as speculated by us, the support article is
merely a mistake on Microsoft’s part. The Microsoft
support site actually tells users how to update to the Windows
10 April 2018 Update, even though it doesn’t exist.
You can manually check for the update by navigating to Settings
> Update & security > Phone
update > Check for updates.
