Windows 10: Apps updating

    Apps updating


    We own two PCs and one thing I just don't understand is MS methods of pushing app updates. For the most part if one machine sees an app update for say Mail and calendar and I'll go and manually check the other machine and the same app update will come through. But I do see a lot of occasions where one machine gets an app update and the other won't for days even weeks later and thus remain on an older version. I know exactly what apps update and meticulously monitor reliability history. For example tonight one machine got an update for Money app, the other did not despite a manual check but earlier roles were reversed as the other machine got a calculator update whilst the first machine did not and as at time of writing this it still hasn't been offered it. I wonder why this happens. It's frustrating the way things are drip fed by MS. Most certainly the chief offenders are the native MS apps although I have noticed the same in the past with the Facebook app. Our family owns a myriad of Apple devices too and when an app updates on iOS every single device gets it, the way I think it should really be done. Seems MS needs to follow their lead on this

    does anyone else notice this and have any thoughts on why this might occur?

    Hi, yes I also own 2 pcs windows 10 slow ring and usually one of my pcs get app updates after a week or so, my idea is that the pcs are not sharing the app store updates only the os updates. But I am sure they could implement the same for both.
