Windows 10 Mobile build 10536 adds one-handed mode, better Photos management

Mark Hachman | Sept. 15, 2015
Expect a lengthy upgrade process, however.

The new build has its disappointments. One of them is that Microsoft has held back the Lumia Camera app until this fall. This may not be a big deal to most Windows Phone owners, but those who own the Lumia 1020 won’t be able to capture 41MP images without it.

The fixes? Patience, or turning back time. “The easy solution is to wait until the app is available in the Store. If you don’t want to wait, you need to use the Windows Phone Recovery Tool to return to Windows Phone 8.1 in order to get the app back,” Microsoft said in a blog post.

After installing the build, issues may arise with uploading photos to OneDrive, unless the latest version of the app is installed. There’s also a mysterious “zStorage” item that appears under the Settings—don’t click it, or the app will crash.

A hands-on evaluation is in the works, whenever the update finishes downloading (it's taking forever). If we see anything noteworthy, we’ll tell you.
