The big day is finally here! Microsoft should start pushing out the long-awaited Anniversary Update for Windows 10 to all eligible users today. But if you don’t want to wait for Windows 10 version 1607¬†to appear through Windows Update, official Anniversary Update ISO files are also available. With these, you can download the update right away.
For now, the download link only works for Windows 10 Enterprise, as you need to enter your business email to be able to download the ISO file. Of course, as soon as other download links become valid, we’re going to update this article so you can download the Anniversary Update for your version of Windows 10.
UPDATE: We finally managed to find links for downloading ISO files for each specific version. However, downloading ISOs still requires either a MSDN subscription, or using a Media Creation Tool. So, if you don’t have a MSDN subscription, the only way to download ISOs is by using the Media Creation Tool. As soon as we find individual links, we’ll update this article once again.¬†Thanks for your patience!
UPDATE 2: Microsoft has made it much more easier to download the official ISO files for Windows 10 Anniversary Update version 1607. There are customers whose Windows machine may have issues with the Windows 10 media creation tool, so a very easy to follow page has been set up on the¬†Microsoft Software Download Windows 10 site.¬†Thus, follow the link from below and its steps to¬†download a disc image (ISO file) that can be used to install or reinstall Windows 10 or to create installation media using a USB flash drive or DVD.
As always, before proceeding towards the download itself, make sure you have an internet connection, sufficient data storage available on a computer, USB or external drive for the download, as well as a¬†blank USB or DVD (and DVD burner) with at least 4 GB of space if you want to create media. Also, it is very important to know that the links provided by Microsoft are valid for 24 hours only from time of creation.
