Microsoft made it official that the next version of its
desktop OS will be known as the Windows 10 November 2019
Update. The update codenamed “19H2” is also known as the
Windows 10 version 1909 where the version number
incorporates the month and the year.
Microsoft hasn’t committed to a release date for shipping
November 2019 Update yet, but a report suggests that the
rollout is still a month away.
Microsoft is expected to begin rolling out Windows 10 November
2019 Update in early November. The rollout of Windows 10
version 1909 will also take place in stages, and it will be
offered to everyone using Windows 10 May 2019 Update or older
with compatible software or drivers.
Windows 10 November 2019 Update release date
If everything goes according to the plan, Windows 10’s next
feature update will land as early as November 12.
It could still be rolled out on any day in the second week of
the month, but November 12 release makes more sense because the
next Patch Tuesday is on the same day.
Patch Tuesday will also allow Microsoft to rollout
compatibility improvements to May 2019 Update PCs before
installing November 2019 Update. This could ensure a smoother
and faster upgrade process for the majority of users.
More details of November 2019 Update
Build 18363.418, which is anticipated to be the final release
of Windows 10 version 1909, is currently in the Release Preview
Build 18363 is a number higher than the Windows 10 May 2019
Update, which represents Build 18362. It’s also worth noting
that the revision number (the three digits that comes after the
decimal) will always match its counterpart – May 2019 Update.
Until November 12, Microsoft plans to improve the overall
experience of Windows 10 19H2 update by porting the monthly
cumulative updates improvements.
No forced upgrades

in the past few months and it has the potential to cause real

Windows Update experience with a new ‘Download and install now’
button to initiate updates. In other words, checking for
