Oops! Microsoft Accidentally Released It’s Windows 10 Internal Development Builds
Microsoft made a mistake last week and was forced to apologize to the world for releasing its confidential internal Windows 10 builds.
Windows Insider Program head Dona Sarkar said, “Builds from some of our internal branches were accidentally released for PC and Mobile. This happened because an inadvertent deployment to the engineering system that controls which builds / which rings to push out to insiders. We apologize for this inconvenience and thank you for being a Windows Insider.”
However, Microsoft claims that the issue was quickly resolved by their teams. Only a few people were reached and the company made sure to not allow the update to spread amongst too many of its users. The bad news, however, is that these builds reached retail devices outside of the Microsoft testing unit. So now, testers will have to recover and wipe the device using the Windows Device Recovery Tool, much to their inconvenience.
Testers will also have to wait for a newer build or roll back using the recovery option in the Windows 10 settings. It was also informed that Microsoft won’t be releasing any new builds this week as it’s working to ensure this surprising mistake doesn’t occur again.
Microsoft has also made it clear that it won’t be releasing any new builds this week as it’s working to ensure mistakes such as the one seen last week don’t occur again.
