Microsoft has officially confirmed the name of the next Windows 10 update, which everyone had taken for granted this month.
In reality, what was supposed to be the April Update will now become the “Windows 10 May 2019”, with a debut scheduled for May in the public eye.
The rollout will start next week and will be available exclusively for members of the Windows Insider program, and can be downloaded directly from the “Release Preview” channel.
Mike Fortin, head of the Windows division, said:
We will begin to expand availability in the second half of May for commercial users, for those who choose May 2019 Update on their PC through the Check for updates and for users whose version of the operating system installed is towards the end of the support.
With the May update, new measures will be introduced that will guarantee users greater control over the management of operating system updates.
It will become possible to pause the download and the update installation, with the possibility to postpone it for 35 days. The “Business Hours” function will be updated to ensure users can choose the most appropriate time for updates to be installed in a more appropriate way.
We just have to wait for the arrival of May for the new update, which will go a bit to break the distribution dynamics that Microsoft has accustomed us in the past.
