Microsoft will force updates on Windows 10 1903

When we get to December, Microsoft will be dropping Windows 10 version 1903, which is an update for May 2019. And since it will be “shut down,” it will no longer receive updates from Microsoft, although the company will remain. engaged asking users to update their devices.

However, we know that not all users follow this Microsoft recommendation, and often out of ignorance. This is why the company will adopt a strategy that is not liked by all users: Microsoft will force the installation of these devices for a newer version of the operating system.

Interestingly, Microsoft will not update devices to the latest version of Windows 10, as the version they will receive is version 1909, that is, the November 2019 update. This is a minor update and the chances of it causing a problem for the user are significantly lower if you have upgraded to the latest version, Windows 10 20H2.

Windows 10 1909 has been described as little more than a service pack, so the focus of this release was on operating system reliability and stability, with fewer new features included.

Windows 10 1903 ends December 8

However, Microsoft continues to recommend that users update their devices manually before the support deadline.

“All editions of Windows 10, version 1903 and Windows 10 Server, version 1903, will end service on December 8, 2020. After that date, devices running these editions of Windows will no longer receive security updates. We recommend that you update these devices to a supported version as soon as possible in order to continue to receive monthly quality updates with security and non-security fixes, ”the company explains.

According to the existing schedule, Windows 10 1903 is expected to be retired on December 8, which means it will no longer receive security updates on its Home and Pro versions after that date. Upgrading to a newer version of Windows 10 is free and can be done through Windows Update.
