Windows Creators Update to come earlier but in two phases

Today has been generous in terms of information regarding the much anticipated Creators Update for Windows 10, which Microsoft plans to release in the very near future. The update has been expected for a really long time and it looks like the time for it to shine has finally arrived.

Just a matter of days are left before Microsoft will officially unveil and release what most Microsoft Windows users deem the most important Windows update in modern history. Also, it’s one of the biggest as well, with a plethora of departments improved or built upon with brand new features which work to give the OS a new shine.

Recently, it has been revealed that Microsoft intends on releasing the new update on the 11th of April, which put a smile on Windows users’ faces. This seems to have changed in the meanwhile, although for the better. The reason for that is the fact that now, the update will be coming on the 5th of April, which is almost a full week earlier.

There is still some waiting to do

Users that are excited for the news shouldn’t get too anxious however, as there is a catch. While users are promised that the Windows 10 Creators Update deployment will start on the 5th of April, it is uncertain when they will actually receive it.

The reason for this is that the company is looking to release the new patch gradually. This automatically means that not everyone is going to get the Creators Update in the first day of its launch. It might take a while before everyone is up to date and has the new update installed on their device.

Fragmented delivery

To make sure this process goes smoothly and the end result is that of a happy community with the Creators Update installed, Microsoft has decided to deliver the update in two phases rather than just one. For starters, the first phase will concentrate on bringing the update to all device brands, focusing on the newer ones. The second phase is where older and more varied device types will get a look at Microsoft’s latest creation, thus rounding up the process of procuring the Creators Update for everyone.
