New Windows 11 build 22499.1010 doesn’t bring “anything new” as it is a servicing update

Windows 11 Cumulative Updates written against a blue background and a Windows 11 laptop

Microsoft has released a new Windows 11 build 22499.1010 (KB5008400) to the Dev Channel insiders. The new build does not bring anything new to the table as it is a cumulative update with which the company is testing its servicing pipelines as it is often known to do. These updates are necessary in order to make sure that the builds can be served to users without any noteworthy issues or hiccups.

This update does not include anything new and is designed to test our servicing pipeline for builds in the Dev Channel.

Hence, all the bug fixes and improvements that were announced with the earlier released build 22499 to the Dev Channel are carried over into this. ISOs for Build 22499 are also available for download. You can find the details here.

Interestingly, while there are no new changes made in this build, servicing test builds like these before have been known to break some features. For example, Windows 10 Build 21292.1010 caused issues for x64 emulation on ARM PCs.

A new Beta channel and Release Preview channel build for Windows 11 is also coming up shortly so keep an eye on that.
