    Windows 10 Creators Update in the homestretch: Here's what's next

    Update: Windows 10 Creators Update coming April 11th 2017 - - Windows 10 Forums


    With a flurry of recent Windows 10 preview releases, anyone in the Windows Insider Program Fast ring has a right to feel exhausted. What comes next? Based on past development cycles, here's what you can expect.

    If you want to know how Windows as a service works, the blueprint is in plain sight.

    I've been following the progression of the Windows 10 Creators Update release with interest for the past nine months. As we approach the official release date of the third big feature update to Windows 10 since its debut in July 2015, it's worth examining the details of the development process, especially as it follows the same template set in earlier feature updates.

    (Note: I'm talking about PC builds only, not Windows 10 Mobile, which sometimes follows a slightly different track.)

    This week's release of Windows 10 build number 15063 to the Windows Insider Program Fast ring contains some important milestones, starting with the About box, which drops the Insider Preview label. This is just Windows 10 or Windows 10 Pro...

    When and where exactly can we expect this Creators Update to start rolling out for the public? Windows Update is telling me that it is on its way.

    Currently RTM is to be released in Spring 2017, rumored to be around April 10th 2017. It will come down via Windows Update.

    Will MS start download the setup files in advance for this update well before the launch date?

    Unlikely. The practice in the past has been that the launch date marks the start of the roll-out. As with previous Features Updates (eg. Anniversary) this will likely be in phases, so you may not see it appear in your Windows Update straight away - some didn't get offered the AU until months later. This is what Microsoft said last time...

    The Windows 10 Anniversary Update is being rolled out to Windows 10 PCs across the world in phases starting with the newer machines first.
