Microsoft has had a bad run with Windows 10 version 1903 in the
past two months. The recent security and non-security updates
broke down a number of basic features, including
Windows Search and even caused
high CPU usage on some configurations.
Windows 10 KB4515384 shipped on September 10 and it comes with
several improvements, including a fix for the Bluetooth
connectivity and quality issues. Microsoft has quietly updated

has been fixed:
- Devices with the built-in speaker may fail to connect to
- Devices with the built-in speaker will produce noisy (bad
quality) audio when a Bluetooth speaker is paired.
- Sound is generated by the internal speaker instead of the
connected Bluetooth device.
