Microsoft Announces Automatic Updates of Windows 10 Version 1903 Devices

Microsoft is getting ready to retire Windows 10 version 1903, or Windows 10 May 2019 Update, in December this year, so the clients are now planning on how it can keep devices still running it secure.

The choice that the software giant will embrace comes down to automatic updates on these computers, therefore if you’re still running Windows 10 version 1903 you will soon be gone to live in a more recent version of the operating system.

Strangely enough, Microsoft won’t just install the most recent form of Windows 10 on these machines but instead stick with a smaller update. In other words, what you’re going to get is Windows 10 version 1909, or even Windows 10 November 2019 Update, all so that they can make the transition as smoothly as possible.

Windows 10 version 1909 continues to be described as a little bit more than the usual service pack, therefore the focus for this release was OS reliability and stability, with fewer new features actually included.

Microsoft: Upgrade as soon as possible

Microsoft recommends users to upgrade their devices manually before the end of support deadline is reached.

“All editions of Windows 10, version 1903 and Windows 10 Server, version 1903 will reach end of service on December 8, 2020. Following this date, devices running these editions of Windows won’t receive security updates. We recommend that you update these devices to some supported version as soon as possible to carry on to get monthly quality updates with security and non-security fixes,” the organization explains.

According to the existing calendar, Windows 10 version 1903 is thus projected to become pulled on December 8, meaning it might no more receive security updates on Home and Pro SKUs after this date. Updating to a newer version of Windows 10 is free and could be done from Windows Update.
