After being delayed, Microsoft finally announced its plan for the next major update of Windows 10 (codenamed 19H2) in the second half of this year.
As expected, Windows 10 19H2 will be officially sent to users later this year, and this will be a small release. That is, it will not be a major update, but will be installed as a monthly update, and this will make the new version setup less disruptive. Microsoft wants to continue to focus on improving the user experience as well as providing better overall performance for the system.
The head of Insider Program of Microsoft, Dona Sarkar, announced in detail as follows:
“The 19H2 update will include a set of features to increase performance, business features, and improve user experience. It will be for PCs running on Windows 10 version 1903 (May), a simple update is like a service pack that will be released gradually (just like small monthly updates). "
Microsoft 's Windows Services and Delivery Manager, also announced one blog posts about my plan for Windows 10 19H2 in more detail:
"The next feature update for Windows 10 (known in the Windows Insider Program like 19H2) will be a set of features that are designed to improve performance, business features and quality improvements.
To provide the most convenient updates, we will provide this feature update in a new way, divided into service packs, for customers running Windows 10 May 2019 options to upgrade to the new version. This means that the installation will be handled like the monthly patches Microsoft has provided, so it does not interrupt everyone's work schedule. ”
In fact, this is not a big surprise because the feature changes are more noticeable, as the new Linux kernel has been tested since February, with the number of builds suggesting the release is expected to fall in the spring. 2020.
Testers of Windows 10 Insider version in Slow Ring will start receiving version 19H2 (Build 18362.10000) right now, but this update does not contain anything new except 2 "backstage" changes. for original parts manufacturers (OEMs) until Microsoft makes the general update process for everyone. It is expected that the version will be available next September.
Thus, it can be concluded that Windows 10 19H2 is not a "new version" or "big update" of Windows 10 as we thought, but simply a long-term update broken down. Microsoft says these update packages act as a perfect step for a more feature-rich version of 20H1 to be released next year.
