Microsoft rolled out a couple of Insider preview builds to Insiders that are still on Windows 10. The new builds are for Insiders who were moved to the Release Preview Channel from the Beta Channel because their PCs don’t meet the Windows 11 minimum requirements.

If you’re running Windows 10 version 21H2 (Build 19044.1147) and are in the Release Preview Channel, you’ll receive Windows 10, version 21H2 Build 19044.1149 (KB5004296). It includes the improvements in Build 19044.1147 and the following change:

We added a new policy that creates generic strings and removes branding-specific terms, such as “Windows” or “PC”, for IoT Enterprise editions. For example, we changed “computer” to “device”. Instead of “Getting Windows ready,” we changed that to “Getting things ready” and so on. These generic strings are displayed on a user’s screen when an update is in progress.

Release Preview Insiders who are on Windows 10 21H1 will receive 21H1 Build 19043.1149 (KB5004296). The update includes all of the changes in Build 19043.1147 as well as the following:

We added a new policy that creates generic strings and removes branding-specific terms, such as “Windows” or “PC”, for IoT Enterprise editions. For example, we changed “computer” to “device”. Instead of “Getting Windows ready,” we changed that to “Getting things ready” and so on. These generic strings are displayed on a user’s screen when an update is in progress.

While you’ll receive different builds depending on if you’re on Windows 10 version 21H2 or 21H1, the changelog is identical.
