#Windows10 #Windows10Creators – Windows 10 Creators Update to Launch on April 5 via Update Assistant : Microsoft recently announced that the Windows 10 Creators Update would start rolling out via Windows Update on April 11, but today the company revealed that those eager to get it earlier would be allowed to download the new operating system update with the Update Assistant on April 5.
The Update Assistant has already received a beta update that paves the road for the Creators Update and launching this version allows computers running the Windows 10 Anniversary Update to install RS2 build 15063, but Microsoft will deliver the final bits starting April 5.
“For the those of you who are eager to get the Creators Update right away, you will be able to initiate the update manually, starting on April 5th, via Update Assistant. This option is intended for advanced users on devices running a licensed version of Windows 10,” Microsoft said in an announcement today.
The company hasn’t said anything about dedicated ISOs for the Creators Update, but there’s a good chance they are published on April 5 as well, as the Update Assistant uses a downloaded system image to initiate the update process.
Windows Update rollout to take several months
As for users waiting to get the new OS release via Windows Update, the rollout will start on April 11 and will take several months to complete, according to Microsoft, as the company ships the new bits in stages to computers across the world.
“Based on our experience and feedback from our customers, we believe a phased approach provides the highest quality update experience to the broadest set of customers,” Microsoft explains.
“The first phase will target newer devices, especially those we tested together with our OEM hardware partners. We will then expand the Creators Update release to additional devices based on the feedback we receive during the initial phase. We’ll iterate this process over a period of several months until all compatible devices running Windows 10 worldwide are offered the Creators Update.”
The easiest way to get the Creators Update will definitely be the Update Assistant coming April 5, and those who can’t wait anymore can try out build 15063 as part of the Windows Insider program which is said to be the RTM version.
