It is also investigating issues of Wi-Fi disconnections. The challenges of defects for mobile on this new release are that Microsoft has change the backup format for Windows 10 Mobile devices to reduce the size of the backup stored in OneDrive. As a result, once a person does a backup on a device with the latest Windows 10 Mobile Insider Preview builds and later move back to the released version of Window 10 Mobile (Build 10586), the start screen layout will not restore but remain the default start layout and your previous backup gets overwritten. The solution to this is that if you want to go back to Build 10586 temporarily, disable backup once on build 10586 so that it does not overwrite the good backup from Windows 10 Mobile Insider Preview builds.
