Microsoft has released another bunch of updates for its OS and software platforms, with the April 2021 Patch Tuesday updates release coming in hot with a range of fixes.
The second Tuesday of the month usually has the company releasing new patches for all supported versions of Windows, including Windows 10, Windows 8.1, and Windows 7 — as long as you are a business that is paying for extended security updates.
There are two types of updates for the two older mainline operating systems and their server counterparts, a monthly rollup that is installed automatically and a security only update that is a manual affair.
Of course, the real action is with Windows 10, where all supported versions of this OS are getting cumulative updates.
Following is the full list of cumulative updates shipping this month:
- Windows 10 version 1507 — KB5001340 (OS Build 10240.18906)
- Windows 10 version 1607 — KB5001347 (OS Build 14393.4350)
- Windows 10 version 1703 — EOS
- Windows 10 version 1709 — EOS
- Windows 10 version 1803 — KB5001339 (OS Build 17134.2145)
- Windows 10 version 1809 — KB5001342 (OS Build 17763.1879)
- Windows 10 version 1909 — KB5001337 (OS Build 18363.1500) (1903 is EOS)
- Windows 10 version 2004 and 20H2 — KB5001330 (OS Builds 19041.928 and 19042.928)
You can check out the details for all of these at their respective links.
And speaking of EOS, Windows 10 version 1909 is set to reach end of support status next month. So, customers still running it have less than a month to upgrade to a new version, unless they run the Enterprise, Education, and IoT Enterprise SKUs of the operating system.
All these patches, rollups, and cumulative updates are available on Windows Update right now.
