Microsoft's Windows 10 Mobile Redstone 2 emphasizes 3D and mixed reality for its tiny segment of the mobile market. While their mobile share is insignificant, the changes in this update are not.
Isaac Brown,

Despite Windows 10 mobile being one of the more irrelevant mobile operating systems at the moment, Microsoft is still dedicated to keeping it up-to-date. The update, known as Windows Mobile Redstone 2, finally started rolling out today to 13 devices. Microsoft is emphasizing the improved software’s capability “to create, share and experience in 3D and mixed reality, connect people faster to those they care about most and empower every gamer to be a broadcaster.”

There were also smaller quality of life improvements made across various apps such as a feature on Microsoft Edge to remind users of old tabs they’ve forgotten about through Cortana. E-books that use the open-source format EPUB will now be readable within the Microsoft Edge browser. The keyboard now has options to prevent autocorrection, remove a word from the user dictionary, and support text prediction for more languages.

Other features have been brought over from the PC version of the update, such as the ability to reset an app back to its original state. All users have to do is go to the advanced settings for that app, hit the “Reset” option, and that will clear the app’s cache.

I joined Notebookcheck at the end of 2016 after being a dedicated reader of the website for the past six years, occasionally tuning out various lecturers to read reviews of the latest gaming and business laptops. As a writer and tech enthusiast, I focus mostly on smartphones, the latest trending gadgets like VR headsets, and the businesses that create it all. When I’m not admiring the latest graphics cards, I write short fiction and arrange for a cappella.
