April is April. Smack on target, and true to its name, Microsoft has officially released the Windows 10 April 2018 Update to users that want to download it manually via the available option.
Better yet, some folks are already getting the final bits via Windows Update.
Interesting, as the launch was set to take place with the forthcoming Patch Tuesday update cycle for the month of May. On May 8, to be specific. Sure, the company will proceed with a staged rollout once again, but at least it has put up this new version up for automatic deployment this way.
Anyway, the company had already confirmed last week that the April 2018 Update would begin rolling out for early adopters on the last day of the month.
This, after this version was delayed by a few weeks due to a particularly nasty blocking bug.
That’s all in the past now, though, and this newest version of the OS is now available for installation.
The software titan even put up a blog post talking about how to get the April 2018 Update, with the company clarifying that while you can manually check for updates to get it, the global rollout will still begin on May 8, as planned.
Which is to say that automatic installations would begin in about a week and then some from now.
Of course, if you are not seeing this version in Windows Update, you can easily install it by other means like the Update Assistant. Or even go ahead and do a clean install with the Media Creation Tool that Redmond has made available for download.
