Microsoft is launching the big update for Windows 10

Microsoft has started working on Windows 10 20H1, which will be released next year, unlike 19H2, which will be removed in the second half of 2019.

According to reports by The Verge, Microsoft usually releases updates twice a year and an update is already scheduled for April – which makes Microsoft's work on the 2020 update unusual.

Windows 10 Build 18836 comes from the 20H1 development branch and contains only general bug fixes.
Microsoft will test the Windows 10 20H1 builds with Insider in the Skip Ahead ring and, although this is an unusual test, everything indicates that Microsoft needs more time to test some upcoming exciting features.

"Some things we are working on in 20H1 require longer delivery times, and we will begin releasing 19H2 bits to insiders later this spring, after 19H1 will be almost finished and ready, once 19H1 is" ​​almost ready and ready ", we will also use the version preview ring for driver previews and quality updates on 19H1," explains Microsoft.

To sum up, Microsoft seems to have the following plan:

  • Windows 10 19H1 will be released to the public in April 2019. Preview builds are available in Fast Ring.
  • Windows 10 19H2 will be released in the second half of 2019. Once the 19H1 is ready for the public, the 19H2 preview builds will be sent to Fast Ring.
  • The preview builds of Windows 10 20H1 are already available for the Skip Ahead ring but the update will be released at the beginning of 2020 for general consumers.
