What should users be expecting from this month’s updates?
If we were to look in retrospect at all the new features and developments from the past month, we can get a pretty clear idea of what is to follow with the latest updates.
This is especially the case with the improvements brought in the Windows Insider builds, although these particular changes could hit live in later months as well.
Here are just some of the most important developments that Windows 10 has been through the past month:
- Microsoft is extending support for Windows 10, version 1803
- Microsoft announces a fix for frequent SSD defragmentation
- The Connect app is now an optional feature in Windows 10
- Windows Defender turns into a dangerous app for admins
- New Windows 10 build changes the way we communicate
- Vulnerability reports in 2020 likely to exceed last year’s
- Windows 10 user interface concepts look awesome
However, nothing is certain until 10 PM PST when the updates will actually hit live and hopefully put an end to many of the issues.
Who knows, maybe this month will be a bit more fulfilling than the last one, and more fixes will be brought, more improvements be implemented, and fewer issues will appear when applying the updates.
Lastly, CVEs have been on the rise, so users are also curious whether this month more or less will be discovered and fixed as well.
