The Azure Sphere OS quality update 20.06 is now available for evaluation via the Retail Eval feed. The retail evaluation period provides 14 days for backwards compatibility testing. During this time, please verify that your applications and devices operate properly with this release before it's deployed broadly via the Retail feed. The Retail feed will continue to deliver OS version 20.05 until we publish the 20.06 update in two weeks.


The 20.06 evaluation release includes an OS update. The update includes the following enhancements:

  • Fixed a problem that caused a segmentation fault in the wpa_supplicant.
  • Fixed a problem that caused device recovery to fail on a device if the run-time clock (RTC) was disabled.
  • Reduced resets triggered by RTC time-outs during OS installation.
Updated Linux SDK

We are also releasing an updated Azure Sphere SDK for Linux, version 20.04 update 1. This updated SDK supports Ubuntu 20.04 LTS. Follow the instructions in the online documentation to download and install the Linux SDK.
