Windows 10 Spring Creators Update public rollout was expected on April 10, but Microsoft has decided to delay the Redstone 4 update due to a last-minute bug. By the looks of things, Microsoft is considering a new name for the newest version of Windows 10 operating system.

Microsoft was expected to launch the next version of Windows 10 as Spring Creators Update (also known as Redstone 4 or version 1803) earlier this week. Microsoft however discovered a bug and the company is now making changes to the operating system. Microsoft could possibly release the update with a new name.

Microsoft hasn’t officially announced the name, build and released date of the next version of Windows 10 yet but the company is expected to publish a blog with more details later this month. It is worth noting that Windows Build 17133 has also been released to all Windows Insiders, and the next obvious step was the public rollout that has been delayed.

Windows 10 Build 17133 has been considered to be the RTM build of the next update, and Microsoft has already released cumulative updates. However, it appears that Microsoft is still looking for a new RTM build and new builds will be released to the Windows Insiders until then.

The ever-reliable BuildFeed has spotted Windows 10 build 17134, although it’s not clear if this is a new RTM build, however, BuildFeed has confirmed that the Redstone 4 won’t be called the Spring Creators Update. It’s certainly unexpected to see a newer name at this point but it could be because of the negative feedback that Microsoft received from the Insiders about the odd naming scheme.

As “Spring Creators Update is probably no longer a thing” Microsoft might opt for a different name that would make more sense and it will be announced when Windows 10 version 1803 RTM is ready.

It goes without saying that Spring Creators Update name never made sense as it could be the third ‘Creators Update’ for Windows 10. Microsoft has so far released two versions of Windows 10 with the name ‘Creators Update’ and ‘Fall Creators Update’. Microsoft would have to change the name of Windows 10 version 1803 in some internal and public documents to avoid confusion.

Microsoft will reveal more about the Windows 10 version 1803 next week or later this month. We’ll update the article once Microsoft announces the name and release date of next Windows 10 update.
