Microsoft is finally rolling out to Windows 10 Fall Creators Update (version 1709) to rest of the devices, worldwide, which means if you been waiting too long for the update, it’s your time. It is usual for Microsoft to roll out the update first for devices which are most compatible, fix bugs, and then target rest of the devices. Windows Insider had been playing a major role for Microsoft, and it was clearly reflected in a recent AdDuplex report which revealed that Windows 10 Fall Creators Update is now on 50% of the PCs.
That said, Microsoft also shared that the same approach was made for Enterprise customers, and they can also fully deploy when ready. IT administrators now can decide to broadly deploy once you have validated the apps, devices, and infrastructure in your organization work well with this release.
Microsoft is also pumping the update keeping the recent reports about “Meltdown” and “Spectre”. Everyone who installs the Windows 10 Fall Creatrs Update will also need to download and install related firmware updates from your device manufacturer.
Windows Team also details about how this upgrade will be rolled out to devices which are still running on Older version include anniversary Update (version 1607) or Creators Update (version 1703). You will get a notification using which you can schedule the right time: just pick a time that works best for you or set a new reminder for tomorrow. If you’re running an even older version of Windows 10, you’ll need to install the Fall Creators Update using Update Assistant on our Software Download site.
That said, even if you are not ready, you will eventually have to upgrade to Windows 10 Fall Creation Update. Like you can see in the screenshot below, you will get to delay the notification by an hour top, and it will keep prompting you.
It’s a good idea to update to Windows 10 Fall Creators Update from whatever version you are rocking right now. Windows 10 FCU is much secure, and can also protect against Ransomware.
