Microsoft will start rolling out Creators Update for Windows 10 starting April 11 to users across the globe. The update, just like the Anniversary Update, will be rolled out in phases. So, it will take some time, maybe months, to reach all the users. As per the eligibility, only licensed Windows 10 users will be able to update their software.
“The first phase will target newer devices, especially those we tested together with our OEM hardware partners,” said Microsoft. Further expandability of the update will depend on the initial phase feedback. “We’ll iterate this process over a period of several months until all compatible devices running Windows 10 worldwide are offered the Creators Update.”
Windows phone users will also start receiving the update starting April 25 in same way. Update availability may vary by manufacturer, model, country or region, mobile operator or service provider, specific installed software, hardware limitations and other factors such as feedback from customers.
If you can’t wait till any longer then you can download the Creators Update manually via Update Assistant from April 5. You can also join Windows Insider Program to experience the Windows 10 Creators Update right away.
This time, users have total control over when the update will occur. You will be able “to specify a time that is convenient for you, pause updates for a week, and expand the “active hours” time window during which you don’t want to be disturbed by an update.”
Creators Update includes lots of new features and will also boost your PC performance. The update includes advanced Microsoft Edge browser, Game Mode, 3D Paint, picture-in-picture mode, support for mixed reality headsets and a lot more.
