Michael Cottuli

Welcome back to our weekly Windows 10 Mobile news recap series, where we go over the top stories of the past week in the world of Microsoft’s mobile operating system. Let’s get started.

More screenshots and info emerge on CShell

CShell has been all the rage in conversations between Windows 10 Mobile fans, recently. The new shell seems like it’s going to be extraordinarily important as we move forward into the future of Microsoft’s mobile platform, so we’re all looking for news on it. Thanks to some great reporting from Italian outlet Aggiornamenti Lumia, we’ve got some new screenshots showing off CShell. From the new notification center to the new keyboard, there’s tons to look at here.

Windows 10 Mobile staying on feature2

The way it’s looking, Windows 10 Mobile as we know it might just be feature complete. According to Microsoft, Windows 10 Mobile will not be leaving the feature2 branch – and some people are theorizing that the Fall Creators Update may just be the last batch of features that this platform will get, until it’s known as something much different. If that’s the case, Windows 10 Mobile fans may be in for an announcement in the near future, maybe regarding the long-rumored Surface Phone.

Night Light not on the roadmap for Windows 10 Mobile

There isn’t much good news for Windows 10 Mobile as the platform begins its transition into the future. The Windows Insider Team has confirmed that the Night Light feature on Windows 10 won’t be coming to Windows 10 Mobile, and didn’t cite a reason for it. We can only assume this is because of the gradual ramping down of feature production for the platform. Unfortunately, those who were bothered by the blue light are out of luck.

Microsoft releases a new update for Windows 10 and Mobile

Microsoft has released an update for Windows 10 and Windows 10 Mobile, bringing both platforms up to date. On Mobile, the cumulative update is labeled “2017-06 Update for Windows 10 1703 for arm-based Phone devices,” and installing it will bump the build number to 15063.414.This update comes as part of this week’s Patch Tuesday, and mostly comes with security tweaks and some simple quality changes – no big new features.
