Windows 10 build 15002 leaks online, but it only includes a few new features and improvements. Microsoft hasn’t release a new test preview for the upcoming Creators Update in weeks. The last official preview the company pushed to Insiders was build 14986, then over the holidays Windows 10 build 14997 leaked online unveiling a slew of new changes. And now, Windows 10 build 15002 has leaked online days before Microsoft makes available a new preview to Insiders.
First spotted by the Twitter user @h0x0d (WalkingCat), Windows 10 build 15002 is actually an official build that the software giant was planning to release to Insiders. Unfortunately, due to certain upgrade problems, Microsoft decided to halt the rollout. However, the upgrade problem has been fixed on newer preview, which means that Insiders can expect a newer build rolling out in the coming days.
Although most of the time builds leaks in ISO file formats, Windows 10 build 15002 is actually a base image, which means that the installation files reside within a .wim file, so it’s not a straightforward process to install.
