    Start screen tiles seem much larger. Changing the text scaling doesn't resolve. BTW, my "recommended" setting is 400%. I slid that down, but with no impact to the start screen.
    You forgot the Show more columns setting ;)

    Woke up this morning and my ATT 950 will not start, just showing a screen with this emoji: :(

    I removed the SD card and it booted fine and works fine. I then put the SD card back in and got the same locked screen with the :(.

    Any thoughts?

    can I switch to fast ring, download the camera app, then switch back prior to a new OS update being downloaded, or are the dependent upon each other?

    I had panorama on an insider preview previously, but had an issue, had to hard reset, and haven't rejoined insiders since.

    I did like the panorama feature, and was using it quite a bit.

    The camera app with panorama was available on the fast app ring only; I didn't get it until I switch to fast ring after my last hard reset.

    Maybe they didn't flip the switch to make fast ring apps available on production yet.

    You cannot switch back when a new o.s. update is starting to download,
    Hovewer they still haven't released nothing more than .86 in fast and slow, only release. You must be pretty fast :)

    So after the AU the glance screen doesn't show any more that your ringer is mute and phone is on vibrate, detailed info about weather still shows in one line and cutting off the rest of the sentence, skype app still doesn't have transparent tile (how many lines of code is needed to do that? 3?); the store with huge tiles looks like "specially adjusted for old folks sight".
    Looks like the insider program does not work or the insiders do not report such a basic issues.
    After so much expectation we are still getting an unpolished beta product.
    What the actual fu..? Where are the improvements?

    Wrong:
    Glance shows exactly same info of lockscreen, notifies and calendar included. Check better.
    Skype got beta, if you would like to try it (that's not the blue S)
    Store now is identical to desktop one .
    What else?

    Enjoy yourself:

    No, read my post better.
    There is no info that the ringer is off on the glance like before.
    Yes I have skype preview, it's not transparent
    Tiles in the Store are to big with a lot of screen area unused.
    Thanks for the reply though.

    I have the same issue. Not a fan of that, it's very easy for me to forget that it is on (or off, should I say).

    Yes, I forgot about the battery level icon too. One of the most logical and useful thing to put on the glance screen, still not there? Not only that, before the update at least there was the battery icon on glance when phone was on charger. Not any more. You can not glance the phone to see the battery is full, let's go. Why they removed that?
    With so many insiders and testers, nobody noticed that?
    Do they even use their phones?

    Not sure if it's an AU issue or just isolated for me, but I am having difficulty adding a credit card/debit card to the wallet. I have a supported bank and card and it appears in the wallet with a message below it saying "Verification Required." I have already received an email from my bank acknowledging my card was added to Microsoft Wallet. Am I waiting on something from Microsoft? Am I supposed to be doing something to verify my card? No instructions provided at all.

    As for glance, I'm having the same issues as others. Remains on when charging (no time out), no battery icon.

    Edit:
    Also, no panorama in the camera app.

    I upgraded 4 Lumia 950/XL's to Anniversary Update and they are all still experiencing the issue with extreme slowness in sending SMS messages. You type in your message and hit send and it just sits there for up to 30 seconds before showing it sent it. Extremely disappointed this was not fixed in the Anniversary Update.

    Are all 950 got the same carrier by chance?

    Yeah, same here about the panorama.

    Hi

    Just updated to anniversary update. Now, when I press the home button the phone goes to the home screen but scrolls to the bottom. If I press it again it goes to the top as expected. Anyone else having this issue?

    UPDATE: And now it is gone. Home button works as expected!!??!!

    I still haven't received the update. I live in Holland, and i'm using a Lumia 950 unlocked on T-Mobile. Could it just be the case that I have to wait a bit longer? Or does this go via T-Mobile.

    My phone auto-updated last night and come the morning, when my son asked to play a game on my phone, I can’t get to kids corner. Can’t find it in the settings anymore. Then a quick internet search reveals MSFT have thrown in away. Seriously MSFT? My wife and I both have windows phones (930 and 950) and kids corner is one of our top features. We can let our 3yo play a quick game without having to worry about IAPs or him messing with our settings and deleting things. Apps corner is just pants in comparison, doesn’t stop IAPs (alright, they are still pin protected, just not disabled), I can’t seem to launch it from swiping anymore either; I have to go the app and manually launch it. It takes ages to load and then ages to close. They might say usage was low, but if that’s the case then just put the feature in to maintenance only mode.

    I really am so annoyed now. I’ve loved the windows phone OS for years now, ever since I got the 800 on WP7.5. Every phone and release just seemed to get better and better. With WP8.1 I honestly believed it was the best OS on the market. Friends of mine with Android and iOS just had no answer to features like the brilliant start screen or kids corner. With W10M it seems to be gradually morphing in to the other boring phone OSs. How long before they ditch the customisable start screen with fixed-sized static icons?

    My wife ventured in to the WP world with the 930, she’s dead set on switching away from WP on her next upgrade now that kids corner is gone. The app store gap has bugged her the whole time, but some unique features were keeping her interested – were.

    Oh yeah, and now my emails won’t open. The app just crashes on load every time. But, it’s okay, if I restart my phone I get to open them once before the crashing starts again – grrr.

    Rant over.
    Check out APPS Corner under SETTINGS (replacement for kid's corner)
    ... and breathe, deep breathes.

    In that case, Microsoft should be rolling it out your way soon. Just keep checking.

    Well I guess my Lumia 930 is working good...at least at an acceptable level. Windows Mobile still needs a lot of work.

    Yep! Updated wallet app is installed. My card appears in the app with the "verification required" message. When I tap the card, I am taken to a screen that says "let's try that again" and "something went wrong at our end." Again, no further instruction or info provided.

    Wow is it just me that I just realized that when tapping to activate the lock screen the left icon changes to camera (instead of back arrow)?
    So still in the lock screen if you push the camera icon, it vibrates and activates the camera app. Not a bad idea.

    I got the AU for my 950 yesterday. I installed it and did a software reset.

    :)
    Scrolling is MUCH smoother! Before, it seemed to "stutter" and was extremely sensitive. Sometimes, a light touch resulted in aggressive scrolling to the bottom of a page.
    The new emojis are simply beautiful IMHO. Gone are the days when one had to guess what an emoji was supposed to mean because all of them looked the same.
    Store app: update history ftw!

    :(
    Unreliable notifications: sometimes I have to unlock the phone to get notifications (eg Whatsapp). They show up in the notification center and on the live tile, but not on my glance screen. Bug?
    Glance screen itself: Some icons are completely missing... the "moon" for quiet hours, the battery indicating low batt as well as the one for charging are all gone. I noticed that some of you seem to have the same problem. Definitely: Bug!
