Microsoft is busy preparing Windows 10 May 2019 Update (19H1) for the public, but the company is also working on the next two Windows updates. Windows 10 version 1903 (19H1) is slated to release in late May 2019, while Windows 10 19H2 will likely be released in October 2019.
We currently know very little about Windows 10 19H2 and it’s not known what features the update would carry. But a new report suggests that Microsoft may not add too many new features to the Windows 10 19H2 update.
Microsoft isn’t skipping the 19H2 update, but it won’t ship the update with radical improvements. It will be little more than a service pack update to Windows 10 May 2019 Update. This could mean the update may not come with major changes for the user interface and existing features.
“They are definitely not skipping 19H2. But it will basically be little more than a service pack update to 19H1, from what I’ve heard,” Mary Jo Foley said in a tweet.

If not any major changes, users can at least expect UI refinements, animation enhancements and performance improvements.
Windows 10 20H1 update
While the next update is 19H2, Microsoft has already started working on Windows 10 20H1 and Windows Insiders in the Skip Ahead program have access to the early builds of Windows 10 20H1.
The most recent Windows 10 20H1 preview release revamped the search experience in File Explore and as well as fixed various issues.
The 20H1 codename suggests that it is scheduled for release in April 2020, and this update could ship with major changes to Windows 10.
