With Windows 10 Redstone 5 already close to entering the stabilization process, Microsoft has started developing new builds of Redstone 6 update (also known as 19H1). The biggest changes in Windows 10 will be introduced with Redstone 6 and the update is due in the spring of 2019.

Microsoft is following the same release pattern with Windows 10 Redstone 6 as it did with Redstone 4 last year. Microsoft has apparently started to compile the first ‘Redstone 6’ builds and it appears that the first Redstone 6 build will arrive for Insiders soon.

The company is now beginning to concentrate on Windows 10 Redstone 6 update, and according to Microsoft’s typical release schedule, it should land in April 2019. Windows 10 Build 18200 has been compiled internally for testing purposes and by thing looks of things, Windows insiders should be getting the very first build soon.

The first build will be shipped to insiders that are enrolled in the Skip Ahead ring and won’t come with any breaking changes. Microsoft today opened the Skip Ahead Ring and the Insiders can subscribe to this special build to start receiving the Windows 10 Redstone 6 builds before everyone else.

Microsoft says that the Skip Ahead Ring has very limited seats, and if you don’t join it now, you won’t be able to register in the coming days and weeks.

Join Skip Ahead Ring and start receiving Redstone 6 builds

  • Open Settings.
  • Navigate Update & Security.
  • You’ll find the Windows Insider program on the left-hand pane.
  • Make sure you’ve registered for the Windows Insider program.
  • Select the “Skip ahead to the next Windows release” in the drop-down menu of “What kind of content would you like to receive?”

It is, however, worth noting that the Redstone 6 builds won’t show up on your PCs now. Microsoft will probably wait a few more weeks before pushing RS6 builds to the Skip Ahead ring.
