While everyone is waiting for the Anniversary Update, Microsoft unexpectedly pushed another cumulative update to Windows 10 Insiders. The update is called KB3176929, and unlike some previous updates, is available to all Windows Insiders from day one.

The update suddenly appeared to Windows Insiders out of the blue, as Microsoft didn’t provide any  changelog. We assume Redmond fixed some of the last known issues from the latest Windows 10 Preview build in order to provide the best possible update experience once the Anniversary Update gets released.

Since this is a cumulative update, it contains all previously releases patches and bug fixes from past updates. This means that with KB3176929, Microsoft also delivered all enhancements to Insiders on the Slow Ring as well. With the update being available to all Windows Insiders, it could easily also arrive for regular users soon.

If Microsoft prepared a new update for the post-Anniversary Update Windows 10, it’ll probably cause issues to users who install it. In case you notice a problem or few after installing the Anniversary Update and you’re not able to solve it yourself, the update with the fix is probably on the way.

We expect Microsoft to start rolling out the Anniversary Update to Windows 10 users at any moment, with ISO files already available for some versions of the system. We remind you that Microsoft plans to release the Anniversary Update in waves, so even if your Windows 10 version isn’t updated, it will be eventually.

Speaking of the Anniversary Update, do you know what to expect from it? Is your computer ready for the next major update

UPDATE: Microsoft released the changelog for KB3176929 update, you can check it out here.
