Windows 10 will now automatically uninstall borked updates

Windows 10 will now automatically uninstall borked updates

You'll need a Windows 10 PC running Windows build 1803 or later and an Android phone running Android version 7.0 or newer.

However, the feature now only works on select devices, so don't get your hopes up quite yet.

Over the last few years, Microsoft has worked on delivering two major Windows 10 feature updates a year and a weekly patch. But it appears the screen mirroring will only be available to PCs that support "Bluetooth with Low Energy Peripheral mode". Microsoft notes that the Surface Go will be the first device in the Surface lineup to preview this feature, however it looks to expand the list of supported devices over time.

With NetMarketshare reporting that 38% (Statcounter reports 33%) of the Windows OS market is still running Windows 7 for the month of February, it's not hard to see why Microsoft is starting to deploy this tactic.

Of course, Windows Updates should be fixing problems, not creating them, which is probably why Microsoft has very quietly rolled out this feature.

You can download the Your Phone app now on Google Play and the Windows Store.

Windows 10's run of problematic updates has been embarrassing for Microsoft, which might explain why the company has quietly launched this feature.

Currently, the Your Phone app for Windows 10 lets you sync content like photos and SMS with a PC.

If a PC fails to start following a Windows 10 update and reboot, users may see a notification that reads: "We removed some recently installed updates to recover your device from a startup failure".
