There also hasn't been a new Windows Phone in over a year, with Microsoft's smartphone operation seemingly at a standstill.

Fluent Design System, introduced at Microsoft's Build conference, is the company's new "design system" for Windows, akin to Google's Material Design for Android and its apps for non-Google platforms. It's not a notably powerful phone, and that is reflected in the fact that you can grab one on a 24-month contract through Optus with no additional handset repayments on any plan. So, in other words, a Windows 10 app is on the way, but only for desktop, it seems.

However, Windows 10 Mobile is not compatible with all devices running Windows Phone 8.1.

According to The Verge, who calls this the end of Windows phones even though most of us probably considered the platform dead after Microsoft abandoned the Lumia brand, only 20 percent of Windows phone have the latest Windows version, Windows 10, installed. The Advanced Options section lets you configure various Download and Upload settings (shown above) while Activity Monitor shows you the overall bandwidth used.

This contracts with what Microsoft is doing for the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update for PCs.

The Windows 10 fall creators update preview also brings with it an updated Mixed Reality Portal icon as well as a more intuitive teleportation experience. The name for each GPU will be shown on the left-hand side of the tab, a new total GPU memory text counter has been added and the default multi-engine view will display more information like 3D, Copy, Video Encode and Video Decode engines. And improved Microsoft Edge processes are labeled in Task Manager. Hopefully that means we'll eventually see the app come to Windows 10 Mobile as well, but it'd probably be wise not to get your hopes up.

Among other moves in that direction, Microsoft recently chose to give Windows users access to the iTunes app.

As for mixed reality, Microsoft has added support for motion controllers over USB (wireless and Bluetooth support is coming soon).

Windows 10 Creators Update now powers over 500 million Windows 10 devices around the world.

Not a lot has changed on Windows 10 Mobile as the company has only provided some general changes, improvements and fixes for mobile. The full list of known issues within this preview build can be found in Microsoft's blog post announcing its release.
