Sharing is caring!

Chief Windows Insider, Dona Sakar, conveyed a week ago that the ISO download of the final Windows 10 Redstone 2 testing build for the year 2016 is already available for download. Having said that, Window 10 Build 14986 released in the first week of December to Fast Ring testers as well as the build for Slow Ring Insiders that was out a week after are now on the Windows Insider ISO Download page.

Given the time frame for the release of a new Insider build which is most likely to happen in less than a month, testers are advised to perform new installs and updates to the latest Creators update test build. This is important if you want to get ready for the Fast Ring release for the coming year and prepare your device.

Microsoft, on the other hand, also gave some pointers for takers. A third-party program is required for ISO file conversion to installable media and that an early build trial can pose risks. It’s imperative to back up files since installation of the preview on a primary PC can have setbacks since the system may crash during the process and users are prone to lose their files.

Meanwhile, Microsoft already released tow cumulative Windows 10 updates, KB32113522 and KB3206309, with former being for the current stable Anniversary Update version while the latter is for the recent Windows 1O Insider Build.

There have been talks that both versions have been affected by the company’s weak information policy in terms of OS updates. Case in point, there is still no published support for KB3206309. But according to Insiders, this update revamps Windows Defender and a message will appear stating this after update installation. Moreover, new features will be added to Windows Defender.

As it is, there update is regarded as a security update based on what the screen says after installation. And with the holiday season here, no new builds are to be expected until 2017 kicks in. In the meantime, Minecraft players can now enjoy the Ender update on Windows 10 and Pocket Edition.
