In case you missed it, Microsoft urges users not to install the Windows 10 Creators Update, latest Redstone 3 preview introduces My People feature, and more tips to get the most out of your devices.

This week on PUREinfoTech: Microsoft officially begins the rollout of the Windows 10 Creators Update for mobile devices, but only for a limited number of phones.

Along with the official release for phones, the software giant also released two new test versions of Windows 10 Mobile, as part of the Redstone 3 update, including build 15207 and build 15208. However, these new builds don’t introduce any new features, instead they only deliver a few fixes and improvements.

Microsoft also released Windows 10 Redstone 3 (OS build 16184) for PCs enrolled in the Fast ring of the Windows Insider Program. This new build delivers My People, a new feature that allows you to pin contacts to the taskbar and quickly connect with people close to your circle.

Cumulative update KB4016240 for PCs running the Windows 10 Creators Update (version 1703) also released this week. The new update doesn’t include new features, but it addresses a number of issues with OS.

In addition, early this week, Microsoft has revealed that is intentionally blocking certain devices from getting the Windows 10 Creators Update automatically due to bugs in the newly released OS. Furthermore, the company is now recommending users not to install the feature update manually and wait for the new version to be offered to your device when it’s ready.
