Windows 10 Fall Creators Update

The Windows 10 Fall Creators Update rolled out from the fall of 2017. That update added Paint 3D and emojis to Windows 10, revamped the Photos app with Story Remix, introduced Fluent Design and more besides. The latest AdDuplex figures highlight that the Fall Creators Update is still by far the most widely installed build.

AdDuplex data shows that the Windows 10 Fall Creatures Update version is now installed on 92.1% of Windows 10 platforms. That figure has increased by about 2% over the last month or so. The Fall Creators Update percentage share has increased despite the few bugs that have surfaced in the update, as mentioned in this post. Nevertheless, that update does still add a lot of handy new settings.

The Spring Creators Update was expected to have a percentage share in AdDuplex’s April figures. April 10 was the anticipated release date for the Spring Creators Update (or Redstone 4). Microsoft has now delayed the launch of that update due to bugs discovered in the latest build. Consequently, the Redstone 4 update has not rolled out this April as expected. It will probably start to roll out sometime in May.

However, the AdDuplex data does still include a Redstone 4 Insiders figure. The release preview for Spring Creators Update is available for Windows Insiders. Thus, the Redstone 4 Insiders percentage share has increased to 0.8%.

It is not such a bad thing that Microsoft has delayed the Spring Creators Update. At least the company is not rushing out the latest build. As such, the delays will ensure that Redstone 4 has fewer bugs that might have otherwise been the case.

So for now, the Fall Creators Update retains the highest percentage share for Windows 10 builds. That will certainly change when the Spring Creators Update finally rolls out. You can check out this article for further Redstone 4 update details.
