Windows 10 Fall Creators Update

Microsoft rolled out the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update 10 days ago, and the company is gradually rolling out the update just the same way it did with previous Windows 10 updates.

What was different this time compared to previous times is the fact that Microsoft seemed to roll out the update more aggressively on the release day and lots of users got it the same day it was released.

The Fall Creators Update in numbers

According to statistics, the Fall Creators Update managed to reach over 5% of all Windows 10 PCs just during the first week after its release.

AdDuplex’s reports show that the update is currently running on 5.3% of all Windows 10 PCs and the original Creators Update is powering 74.6% of the systems.

On the other hand, last year’s Anniversary Update is used by 17.3% of all Windows 10 PCs, but this one will most likely start to decline as more and more users will switch to Windows 10 version 1709.

The Fall Creators Update powers 20% of Surface devices

Earlier this year by the time the majority of the devices from other OEMs were running the original Creators Update, some Surface devices were already falling behind.

But now the situation is entirely different as the Fall Creators Update is already powering over 20% of the original Surface Book devices and almost 20% of the Surface Pro 2017 devices.

We can’t say that we are surprised by Microsoft’s aggressive rollout of the Fall Creators Update because this one is not as large as the original Creators Update and it only packs a few new significant features.

But on the other hand, at this rate, the Fall Creators Update could take the place of the original Creators Update by the end of this year in terms of powering Windows 10 systems.
