Microsoft has finalized its release date for Windows 10 Creators Update, but is still playing its cards close to its chest. However, the company confirmed via sources that spoke to The Verge that testers are getting the new OS version at the end of the month, with a full rollout to all other Windows 10 users starting early April.
Earlier this week, Windows Central ran a report that Microsoft would release the OS to testers as early as next week, and then release it to the public on April 11. The new information indicates that the company is selecting a final version, which will be given to testers at the end of this month.
We’ve also learned that Microsoft will work on getting several patches for Windows 10 Creators Update, and has committed to greater transparency for updates so users don’t find their machines randomly rebooting when they’re trying to use them.
There are some major changes coming with Windows 10 Creators Update, not the least of which is the new Game Mode. Early on, in the Insider preview builds, we also saw 3D Paint and several improvements to Microsoft Edge, like ePub support and tab mode enhancements, as well as support for low-cost augmented and mixed reality headsets from OEMs like HP, Dell, Asus, Acer and Lenovo.
Windows 10 Creators Update is the first of two major updates to Windows 10 coming this year. The second one should drop in the fall, and will hopefully herald the arrival of the eagerly anticipated but elusive Surface Phone.
If you haven’t upgraded to Windows 10 yet, you can still get it for free – learn how.
