Windows 10 Build 10162 Now Available for Download

Microsoft has just released Windows 10 build 10162 to users enrolled in the fast ring of the Windows Insider program, thus providing them with the third build in only a few days, which is actually faster than any time before.

In case you're wondering why Microsoft is rolling out new builds so fast, it's because the development process of Windows 10 has reached that stage when the company is focused more on fixing bugs and improving performance of the operating system, and less on new features that usually take more time. This way, new builds are compiled at a much faster pace and pretty much every single internal build becomes a candidate for the public release, especially when significant performance improvements are obtained.

“We’re at the point in the development of Windows 10 where nearly every build is getting out to our internal rings, and passing the criteria for release to Windows Insiders. We’re focused at this point on bug fixing and final polish, so it’s much easier for each build to get all the way through than earlier in the cycle when we’re adding big new features,” Windows Insider boss Gabe Aul said in a post today.

Slow ring users could get it too
Once again, this new build is specifically aimed at fast ring users, but Microsoft says that those enrolled in the slow track could get it too sometime in the near future. Obviously, if this build hits the slow ring, new ISOs could also be received, which could be the last before the final launch of Windows 10 on July 29.

If you are wondering what's new in this build, 10162 is all about bug fixing, so you might not notice anything different after installing it. And yet, Aul says this is the best Windows 10 build so far, so just fire up Windows Update and get it the new build right away.

iPhone 6s Leaks Out, Almost Identical Design to iPhone 6

It’s no secret that Apple is highly anticipated to unveil two new iPhone products this autumn, which have come to be known in the rumor mill as the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6 Plus.

While we have been hearing a lot of info related to what the new iPhones will supposedly bring to the table, there has been no visual adagio to the whole story. Until now. The folks at 9to5Mac have gotten hold of a bunch of images showcasing what appears to be the iPhone 6s' external casing plus an in-depth look at the new iPhone internals. Thanks to the new imagery, we get to see that Apple will be preserving most of the exterior design of the iPhone 6 Plus and iPhone 6 Plus. We had been hearing talk of a number of potential changes related to design, but if we’re to treat this leak as the real deal, this will not be the case.

iPhone 6s to be a twin for the iPhone 6?
For starters, the design of the back case seems completely akin to what we saw with the iPhone 6. No differences in size or positioning of the holes are noticeable either, and the same thickness or width seems to be maintained. But even if things look identical on the outside, it doesn’t mean that the insides will follow the same pattern too. For example, the mounting points for the phone’s new logic board and components seem to differ. So we should expect Apple to make many more changes, under the hood. Apple has recently filed a patent outlining a technique that allows to hide the antenna lines on the back of an iPhone with an “anodized metal appearance.” But according to the leak, these lines will continue to be present even with the next-gen iPhones.

Furthermore, we’ve been hearing rumors that the iPhone 6s could bundle a dual-lens camera. However, the new images showcase a rear shell featuring the same holes for camera, microphone and LED flash, as we have seen before. So it seems highly unlikely at this point that we will see something else. Last but not least, we’re given a glimpse into the bottom design of the next-gen iPhone 6s too. And yes, everything down there looks the same, including the number of speaker holes, position of headphones, microphone and Lightning holes.
