The rollout of
Windows 10 April 2018 Update started earlier this month,
and according to AdDuplex, a leading cross-promotion network
for Windows Store apps, the latest version of the OS has
already managed to reach 50% of Windows 10 PCs in just one
month. It is worth noting that the report is based on data
collected from around 5,000 Microsoft Store apps.
Microsoft typically needs a few months to ship new Windows 10
updates to all devices, but it appears that the more and more
users have manually upgraded their systems to the newest
version of the operating system.
Windows 10 April 2018 Update is available for manual download
since April 30, and in just one month, the operating system is
on 50% of PCs. AdDuplex claims that this the fastest spreading
Windows 10 update by far, and the previous version of Windows
10 (the Creators Update) was under 50% for about 3 months.
Microsoft has tried to make Windows 10 the right operating
system for all devices with the April 2018 Update (version
1803). Windows 10 version 1803 is a big update and it
comes with Timeline, a new feature that allows users to resume
the activity from where they left off. It also improves Edge
browser, Start menu, Fluent Design, first-party apps and fixes
the glitches reported by users.
Windows 10 April 2018 Update offers smooth experience and the
performance is also better on the low-spec machines that were
specifically developed to be affordable.
Microsoft started allowing manual downloads of Windows 10 April
2018 Update on April 30, and you can manually check for
updates. To install the newest version of Windows 10, navigate
to Settings -> Update & Security, and simply click
the Check for updates option in Windows Update.
While many people are happy with Windows 10 April 2018 Update,
it is also causing unexpected problems on some devices and
users claim that the update is quite buggy.
Microsoft will most likely fix all the reported issues with the
next cumulative update that will take place on June 12. Every
month, on second Tuesday, Microsoft ships patches for all
supported version of Windows 10 with fixes and improvements.
However, it remains to be seen if Microsoft will able to
provide a flawless experience in Windows 10 April 2018 Update
on all devices.
