Microsoft is going to address a big problem with new release

The next update is due in May

This will allow Microsoft to gain valuable feedback and resolve any incompatible drivers, software, and bugs before it is made publicly available in May. Instead of making available the update right away, Microsoft made a decision to give it another round of testing in the Release Preview ring.

The Home and Pro SKUs are being retired today, so going forward, Microsoft will only release security updates to devices running Windows 10 version 1709 Enterprise and Education.

Although Microsoft is gearing up to begin its gradual rollout of the May 2019 Update, version 1903, for Windows 10 toward the end of May, as soon as the feature update is finalized, you can download the final version before anyone else with the Windows Insider Program.

"If you are in the Fast ring and your PC gets updated to 20H1, you won't be able to switch your ring to the Slow or Release Preview rings without doing a clean-install on your PC and starting over", he warned.

The company has already confirmed that this is the way it will stay for at least a month, as the company does everything possible to avoid a repeat of the much documented (not to mention moaned about) problems with the Windows 10 October 2018 Update, Build 1809.

Click on Windows Insider Program.

If you are now not an Insider and would like to test the May 2019 Update before it is publicly released, you first need to join the program.

You will now be prompted to link a Microsoft account with the program. Usually, it's best to wait until you receive a notification letting you know that the feature update through Windows Update.

Select your Microsoft account from the list (or use a different account). If you just want the stable May 2019 Update referenced above, select Just fixes, apps and drivers. When ready, click on the Confirm button. The release is live now for Windows Insiders, a program you can easily join. There were several reports online that claimed the messaging company would stop working on Windows phone but neither WhatsApp nor Microsoft has announced or confirmed about the service discontinuation. On the other hand, to prevent unwanted restarts due to updates, users will now have the option to let Windows Update adjust intelligently, with active hours based on their usage patterns.

This change also impacts any Insiders who wish to take advantage of the "magic window" and un-enroll PCs from the Windows Insider Fast ring and move them onto the shipping support train.
