DSC06967Microsoft have just flipped the switch on another update for Windows 10 Technical Preview for phones, the update should be available to download now via the “Windows Insider app”. The latest update supports a much wider range of devices, including the Lumia 520, 1520 and almost every other Lumia (short of the Lumia 930 and Icon).

This new build brings a set of new features including:

  • Spartan Browser
  • New Mail and Calendar Apps
  • New Phone and Messaging Apps
  • New people app
  • New maps apps
  • Updated Multitasking view

As you can see from the image above, we’re currently updating our Lumia 630 to the latest build, and we’ll be sure to share some videos of what’s new once we’re set up. Stay tuned.
