After the release of the Windows 10 May 2019 Update, Microsoft announced that official Windows 10 April 2018 Update support ends on November 12, 2019.
This means that all the Windows 10 devices still running the April 2018 Update will automatically install the latest OS version.
The Windows 10 April 2018 Update (Windows 10, version 1803) will reach end of service on November 12, 2019 for Home and Pro editions. Starting this June, we will begin updating devices running the April 2018 Update, and earlier versions of Windows 10, to ensure we can continue to service these devices and provide the latest updates, security updates and improvements.
Microsoft also added that the update process would start in June so as to make the transition to the new OS as smooth as possible.
We are starting this machine learning (ML)-based rollout process several months in advance of the end of service date to provide adequate time for a smooth update process.
The Windows 10 April 2018 Update packs many useful features for PCs and tablets, such as the Timeline feature, the option to mute apps and lightning-fast Bluetooth pairing.
Despite all these interesting features, this OS version didn’t attract as many users as Microsoft had hoped. Moreover, the update also got negative feedback from users.
This was mainly due to the technical issues that users experienced after the update, such as app errors, slow boot up issues, and more.
On a bright note, Windows 10 April 2018 Update brought fewer bugs that the October Update.
