The April 2019 Patch Tuesday rollout will start tomorrow, so that as it happens every month since mid-2015, Windows 10 gets its very own cumulative updates.
The Patch Tuesday cumulative updates include both security and non-security fixes, and Microsoft is anticipated to resolve several vulnerabilities in the software.
All Windows 10 versions will get cumulative updates tomorrow, albeit it’s worth knowing that for consumers just the Fall Creators Update and newer are supported. In other words, users running the Home or Pro SKUs need to be on version 1709 or later in order to get updates.
Enterprise and Education devices, as well as systems enrolled in the LTSC branch, are also getting updates no matter version.
“The end from the Fall Creators Update”
The April 2019 Patch Tuesday also marks the end of Windows 10 Fall Creators Update. Microsoft will ship the last batch of updates with this particular version on Home and Pro SKUs tomorrow, then consumers are recommended to upgrade to a newer Windows 10 release.
At this time, the most recent stable version of Windows 10 may be the October 2018 Update (version 1809), with Microsoft getting ready to introduce another major update called May 2019 Update. Its rollout would start the following month, and also the update is currently available for Windows insiders.
Once we do every month, we’ll publish detailed information from the Patch Tuesday cycle once the rollout begins. We’ll also keep an eye on the primary feedback channels to see if any issues are reported, especially as there’s growing concern among users and IT admins that the installing of cumulative updates could fail.
However, given critical security fixes are likely to be included, users are suggested to think about patching when the rollout starts depending on the resolved vulnerabilities.
