Microsoft was expected to begin the rollout of Windows 10 Spring Creators Update yesterday (April 10). But if the report is believed to be true, the software giant has discovered a bug in the newest version of the operating system and update is delayed for the time being.
Windows 10 Spring Creators Update, also known as Redstone 4 will be released in a couple of days or weeks from now. Microsoft has delayed the release for an unspecified number of days, but its likely that the update will be released by the end of April. It is, however, worth noting that Microsoft itself has never confirmed the release date of the Windows 10 Spring Creators Update, the company has only said that the rollout is expected to begin in the month of April this year.
The people with knowledge of the Microsoft rollout plans claimed that the update will be released on April 10 as planned initially but the company has delayed the release due to some flaws that still exist in the upgrade system. Although the OS itself seems to be running quite smoothly, a blocking bug has reportedly delayed the rollout. Nonetheless, the Windows 10 Spring Creators Update public rollout is still expected by next week.
As far as the bugs are concerned, it’s more likely to be an upgrade bug as everything seems to be running quite smoothly on beta testers machine already powered by the latest version of Windows 10.
Microsoft has confirmed a while ago that the new Windows 10 updates will be pushed to users in waves, which means that computers will get the update gradually. Last year, the rollout of the Fall Creators Update completed in approximately three months. Before rolling out the update, Microsoft is expected to publish a blog post with more information on the rollout schedule and as well as the new features.
Microsoft has also released a new cumulative update for the Spring Creators Update devices enrolled into the Insider program. This update has fixed a bunch of bugs and probably the blocking bug as well. The cumulative update brings us one step closer to the public launch of the Spring Creators Update.
