Microsoft might have delayed the initial launch of the Windows 10 April 2018 Update, but the latest Windows 10 version has rolled out faster than any other major update. The latest AdDuplex data shows that the latest version (1803) is now installed on 50% of Windows 10 devices. Thus, the April 2018 Update has rolled out faster than anticipated.

AdDuplex’s April figures highlighted that the Fall Creators Update was installed on 92.1% of Windows 10 platforms. That percentage share was expected to drop in May with the new April 2018 Update rolling out. However, the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update figure has now plummeted to 43.1% in the wake of the April update soaring to a 50.1% percentage share.

As such, the Windows 10 April 2018 Update is rolling out more quickly than any other previous version of the OS. In comparison, it took about three months for the Creators Update to get to the 50% mark. The general trend is that Microsoft is rolling out major Windows 10 updates more quickly. As such, you don’t have to wait so long to get updated these days.

The AdDuplex data also provides Windows 10 April 2018 Update usage share percentage figures for OEM (Original Equipment Manufacturers). That data highlight the latest update has been most widely installed on Microsoft, MSI and Dell devices. MSI’s 68.7% percentage figure is the highest April 2018 Update usage share for OEMs.

So Microsoft has been very quick off the mark with the April 2018 Update rollout. However, there have been a few issues in the latest update that Microsoft will probably fix with cumulative patches. You can check out this post for further details April 2018 Update bug details.
