According to a Microsoft Developer blog post that was published in February and then modified today the Windows 10 spring creators update will land for the public in mid April. It also says that support for the update will end in October 2019, giving it the standard 18 months. If it’s like previous versions though, Microsoft will end up extending it for an additional six months, which might make one wonder why the company doesn’t just give it two years of support from the beginning.
10. April is the Day when everyone gets the Spring Creators Update
Microsoft will roll-out the new Redstone 4 Build in several waves as always, OEM’s getting the build already earlier at the beginning at April this year. The rest of us gets the build on 10. April 2018. The new Build gets the number 1803.
The name ‘Spring Creators Update’ isn’t confirmed but everyone looks like it’s getting the name.
The SDK versions are already available (Build 17115) which indicates that it should be ready soon, usually the SDK getting rolled-out faster so that OEM’s have enough time to prepare the new release.
SDK, & Co.
We’re all waiting for the new release and Microsoft will get monitored closely especially because the entire telemetry scandal in the past.
