Windows 10 November 2019 Update codenamed ’19H2′ is not a big
release and it comes with improvements only. The key highlights
new search experience in File Explorer, performance
improvements and longer battery life on some devices.
Microsoft’s Spring 2019 Update will have more new features
compared to prior releases. For example, Windows 10 20H1 update
comes with a new chat-based Cortana experience, a new way to
reset and recover computers, bandwidth limits for Windows
Update, Task Manager improvements and more.
There’s plenty of time for Microsoft to add new features to
Windows 10 20H1, but a new report suggests that the 20H1 update
may go RTM as soon as December for an early release in 2020.
Windows 10 20H1 has reportedly gained
‘feature-complete’ status internally and new builds will focus
more on fixing bugs and issues. The report makes sense as
Insiders haven’t received any new features in 20H1 preview
builds for a couple of months and last major preview update
included Cloud Recovery feature.
In the coming weeks, Microsoft will be focusing more on
polishing Windows 10 20H1 update before the company signs-off
RTM build in December.
Microsoft is also planning to go back to two major updates
approach in 2020.
It means the next-next update Windows 10 20H2, which will ship
in the second half of 2020, might come with several new
features unlike Windows 10’s November 2019 Update.
The 20H2 update should be finalized in June, alongside
Windows 10X, a new version of Microsoft’s desktop operating
Windows 10X will be ready for Surface Neo and Lenovo ThinkPad
X1 in the second half of 2020, and it might arrive on laptops
later next year with a
modern File Explorer.
Will Windows 10 20H1 launch earlier?
Windows 10 updates are typically shipped to consumers between
April-May and October-November. As Windows 10 20H1 will be done
in December, Microsoft might begin shipping the update to
consumers in January or February, but that’s not guaranteed
Microsoft may decide to stick to the traditional release
schedule and test the update with Insiders for a longer period
to avoid past mistakes. However, we can still expect the new
two updates to roll out sooner to the public.
