Latest Windows 11 Beta Builds Fix DST Issue
Microsoft is releasing two new versions of Windows 11 to the Windows Insiders beta channel. As usual, there is a new release for those with new features enabled, and a separate release for those with new features disabled by default. The build for those with new features is build 22622.601. Those without new features will see build 22621.601. This week, both versions receive the same fixes.
The most notable fixes for builds 22621.601 and 22622.601 are for Chile Daylight Saving Time. Microsoft has updated the start date accordingly. In Windows Settings, it will now start on September 11, 2022, instead of September 4, 2022. There are also three other fixes covering some smaller parts of the operating system, as listed below:
- We fixed the issue where clicking the network icon on the lock screen did not work and caused the lock screen to crash.
- We have reduced the power used by the Dynamic Host Configuration protocol on some devices when in sleep mode.
- We fixed an issue that affected Dual SIM calls. If you do not select a SIM card on your phone and initiate a call on your device, Dual SIM functionality does not work.
Both versions have only one known issue to report this week. Microsoft is investigating reports that audio may stop working for some Insiders in recent Beta Channel builds. The company hasn’t provided any workaround for this, but if you encounter this issue, please report it through the feedback hub first. You can then try to roll back to your previous version of Windows 11 through Windows Update settings. You can also try using the built-in diagnostic tool by right-clicking the sound icon and choosing Troubleshoot sound issues.
Microsoft also released a Windows 11 Dev Channel release today. This release is another minor release, adding behavior changes to the SMB Authentication Rate Limiter. As always, you will find your respective version waiting for you in Windows Update.
