Microsoft which announced the availability of Windows 10 Creators Update for all the compatible devices has now confirmed that it has made some important changes to its “Windows as a Service” model. The company says that it will now follow a “Semi Annual” release for Windows 10 and Office 365.

The company which describes this as a simplified and aligned servicing model has planned new major releases every six months under the Semi Annual Channel. This model makes it easy for everyone to expect what is coming and when the update will be available by preparing them for a major Windows 10 update and also discontinue support for older versions.

Currently Microsoft is pushing the Windows 10 Creators Update under the Semi Annual Channel which would soon be replaced by the company’s next major update Fall Creators Update due to be released in couple of months time.
