Windows 10’s Creators Update must have been one of the most talked-about topics of 2016 in the tech spectrum because it signals Microsoft releasing more frequent updates instead of a new OS. Many want to see what the first batch of said promises will look like. With no palpable details regarding the release of this update available, many have settled on speculating in which half of 2017 we will get to check out the Creators Update, also known as Redstone 2.

Chatty partners

The long awaited confirmation came from Fitbit, which posted a long announcement on its support forum. The post was regarding Fitbit’s own beta trials for device notification features on the Windows 10 platform. Nevertheless, if we are to believe the information that slipped from Fitbit, te Windows 10 Creators Update will be available in April.

This isn’t the first time a company divulges the April launch date of Windows 10 Creators Update. Earlier, Dell managed to let slip out the same information about the upcoming Windows 10 update, with the key detail that the launch will be happening on a sunny day in April.

Final build

It has been speculated for some time now that Microsoft intends to launch the long anticipated Creators Update while the patch is build number 1703. Recent details made it so a 1703 final build doesn’t seem as likely anymore. The recent discovery that Microsoft might be releasing it in April got people talking again. It was rumored that Microsoft wants the update to be ready by March, therefore stopping at build 1703. Now that Redstone 2 is believed to arrive in April, many think that maybe we will see Microsoft push out build 1704 in the process.

While some are eagerly awaiting Creators Update to drop, there are also those that are already looking forward to the next step in their Windows Insiders journey: Redstone 3.
