Windows 10 just got another surprise patch ahead of next big update

Windows 10 surprise update

Windows 10 version 21H1 is around the corner and Microsoft has
now started rolling out a new patch ‘KB4023057’ to prepare
devices for the next big update. KB4023057 is a mandatory
update for ‘Windows 10 Update Service components’ and it has
been designed to fix issues with Windows Update settings.

This patch includes reliability improvements for Windows Update
service in the consumer edition of Windows 10 version 20H2,
version 20H1 and older. For starters, it will attempt to fix
the ‘Windows Update service’ by cleaning disk space on your
device when it does not have enough free space for feature
updates.

It will also attempt to fix the broken system files, resources
and features that may affect the Windows Update process in
future. These changes help make sure that future feature and
cumulative updates are installed seamlessly on your device, and
your device is prepared for emergency patches.

In the support
bulletin, Microsoft noted that Windows 10 KB4023057 is
rolling out to devices gradually and it will be installed
automatically if required.

Microsoft is not aware of any issues with the patch, but you
can always uninstall it using Control Panel if you encounter
any unexpected problems.

The reliability updates are typically released ahead of the
major feature or cumulative update. Reports have suggested that
Windows 10 version 21H1 ‘Spring 2021’ update will begin rolling
out to testers in the Release Preview Ring and production
channel soon, so it’s possible that Microsoft is preparing the
next big release.

As we reported recently, we’ve already seen evidence of version
21H1 in
February 2021 cumulative update. According to references
spotted in this month’s cumulative update, version 21H1 will
hit the Windows Insider ‘release’ channel in February or March.

This feature update is expected to ship with support for DNS
over HTTPS (DoH), Storage Sense, Settings app improvements, and
more.
