All compatible devices should now be upgraded or have an upgrade available to the latest version of Windows.
Microsoft appears to be picking up the pace when it comes to releasing new versions of Windows 10 to the public. As such, Microsoft’s latest Windows 10 Fall Creators Update is now officially available for all compatible devices, the company has announced. What this means is that every device running a version of Windows 10 that is compatible with the Fall Creators Update, will now be able to receive the latest version via Windows Update.
“I’m happy to announce the Fall Creators Update (version 1709) is fully available for all compatible devices running Windows 10 worldwide. Full availability is the final phase of our rollout process,” John Cable, Director of Programme Management, Windows Servicing, and Delivery wrote in a blog post.
The software giant started rolling out the Fall Creators Update on October 17 last year and it is the fastest Windows 10 release to reach 100 million devices. “We’re pleased to announce that the Fall Creators Update was the fastest Windows 10 release to reach 100mn devices, all while achieving higher customer satisfaction ratings compared to prior updates,” Cable added.

Highlighting the need to protect devices and the information in them, Microsoft took note of the recent “Meltdown” and “Spectre” CPU vulnerabilities. “We build the latest security technology deep into the Windows OS to provide defence-in-depth features that prevent evolving malware and other vulnerabilities from impacting your device,” Cable noted.
The company spends over $1 billion (roughly Rs. 6,350 crores) every year on cyber-safety and security-related research and development. Microsoft rolled out the Fall Creators Update for Windows 10 in October 2017 which that includes support for Virtual Reality (VR) and Mixed Reality (MR).
While announcing the update, Terry Myerson, Microsoft’s Executive Vice President for Windows and Devices, has said that the free update will also include a new photo app and many tweaks to the overall design and usability of Windows 10.
Users who want to update can simply click the Update Now button on the Software Download Site to manually update their device. They can also update their device or personalize the settings including their active hours, restart options and other advanced options in the Windows Update settings menu.
“As always, we’re actively listening. If you have feedback, please share it with us via the Feedback Hub app,” the company has stated.
Meanwhile, the company is also reportedly working on the next upgraded version of Windows 10, codenamed Redstone 4. This version is expected to launch in April this year and it will basically be rolled out in a similar fashion as the Fall Creators Update where Microsoft will be targeting a smaller release circle first. Then if all goes well and there are no major issues the update will be expanded to full availability to all the users.
