AdDuplex recently released its monthly report showing a slowdown in the rollout of the Windows 10 October 2018 Update. The company used the data collected from 5000 apps that are currently running their ad plugin. It has been reduced from 9% to 5% in the current month.

The number of users who started adopting October 2018 Update increased significantly in February this year.

Moving forward, the March statistics show that 26.4% of Windows 10 users have now installed the update. We can clearly see from these figures that more and more users are now adopting the Windows 10 October 2018 Update. 

The latest figures show that there has been a significant slowdown in the roll-out process of the operating system. Most of the Windows 10 PCs won’t probably get the October 2018 update before the rollout of the Windows 10 April 2019 update. ]

Hence, users will be directly installing the April 2019 update when they check for updates.

Windows 10 October 2018 Update has a bad history

As we have already reported, Microsoft has been struggling to cope up with the issues caused by the October 2018 Update since day one.

The company was forced to pull back the October 2018 Update from its download servers just days after its release. The Redmond giant started investigating the isolated reports regarding a bug that deleted data store on users’ computers.  

The company is trying its best to make this roll out a successful one. Most importantly, unlike the October 2018 Update, now AI-based technology has streamlined the update process.

However, it is yet to be seen whether the situation remains the same or it changes for the better in the next few months.

Have you installed the October 2018 Update on your systems? Let us know in the comments section below.
