The latest Windows 10 builds, 17115 and 17618 to be more precise, focus primarily on fixing the bugs and issues reported by Insiders. The build release notes confirm that making the OS as stable as possible has now become Microsoft’s priority.
Indeed, the builds released in January and February were packed with new features to Insiders’ delight. As the clock is ticking, Dona Sarkar’s team is now working at full speed on fixing the bugs affecting the OS.
As its name suggests, the Spring Creators Update, aka Windows 10 v1803 is scheduled for release this spring. However, there is no official confirmation yet as to the exact release date.
Windows 10 v1803 to land in the first week of April 2018
Well, we expect the Windows 10 Spring Creators Update to arrive in the first week of April and this is more than a gut feeling.
Take a look at the table below (courtesy of Wikipedia):
As you can see, a pattern can be extracted. Take a look at the version number and then look at the official release date. The first two digits of the version number stand for the year that the update was released. The next two digits stand for the month that the RMT version was released.
As a quick reminder, the RMT version is the OS version released to manufacturers, so that they can identify and fix any bugs the OS might encounter with their hardware devices.
Usually, the OS is released one month after the official RTM version. According to recent Insider reports, Redstone 4 will have version number 1803.
In other words, Microsoft’s Windows 10 Update schedule suggests that the Spring Creators Update RTM should land in March — possibly mid-March or the last week of March — while the public OS version will arrive next month, meaning in April.
Since Microsoft’s Windows 10 release pattern suggests that new OS versions usually land in the first week of the month, we dare day that users will be able to install the Spring Creators Update by the first week of April or the second week in the worst case scenario.
Once again, there is no official confirmation yet as to the exact release date, but this is what the existing release pattern suggests.
