Microsoft releases incremental updates for Windows 10 two times a year. Users are generally are confused about the rollout of the updates.Typically,the strategy for which Microsoft is known is the staggered rollout. In this approach, new users with tested and supported devices receive the updates first. A tiny fraction of total users receives updates in the early days, and then a wider rollout is expected for older devices.
But, why this approach? Well, you make the version available to a smaller fraction; they can report the bugs in the software and fix them without deploying the faulty version to most of the machines.Users like us have no say in the process, and all we can do is click on the “Check for Updates” and hope for the best.
With this new update, Microsoft will bring the winds of change and let the customers know whether they will be receiving the update in the initial stages or the later ones. This will reduce the confusion of the users when it comes to the timeline of the rollout from the user’s perspective.
The message delivered by Windows is as follows for most of the users:
“The Windows 10 May 2020 Update is on its way. We’re offering this update to compatible devices, but your device isn’t quite ready for it. Once your device is ready, you’ll see the update available on this page. There’s nothing you need to do at this time.“
If you are one of them, then you need not do anything and wait for Microsoft to make it available for your device later. It was stated earlier that this upcoming update would be fixing almost ten issues. The update is expected to begin the rollout this week, starting from Tuesday.
But if you just cannot wait, then there is a way to bypass the rollout and get your hands on the new update. One can use the Media Creation Tool by Microsoft to do this. Although we would not recommend you to do this as your device might face compatibility issues and also a stable update is always better than buggy one. You can check Microsoft’s website to see whether your device is fully compatible or not.
