Windows 10 users receive two stable builds on a yearly basis. The first one is released in spring and the second one is pushed in autumn. These updates bring a number of features, performance improvements and bug fixes. Microsoft started using a machine-learning-based solution to force Windows 10 updates in June this year. This decision was made to avoid the chaos created by Windows 10 October 2018 update in future.
Microsoft has announced the end of service deadline for Windows 10 Creators Update. The Redmond giant has confirmed that all systems running Windows 10 Version 1703 will no longer receive extended support after October 9, 2019.
Windows 10 Creators Update was initially launched back in April 2017. However, the company decided to retire Home, IoT Core editions, Pro, and Pro for Workstations last year. The Education and Enterprise Editions were scheduled to reach the end of service right in October 2019.
Microsoft is now recommending its users to update to the latest version as soon as possible. All those users who are still running Windows 10 version 1703 are seeing the reminders in Microsoft Store.
The Enterprise and Education editions of Windows 10, version 1703 (the Windows 10 Creators Update) will reach end of life on October 9, 2019. The Home, Pro, Pro for Workstations, and IoT Core editions reached end of service on October 8, 2018.There is no extended support available for any edition of Windows 10, version 1703.
