Windows 10 Spring 2021 Update

It’s coming close to that time again, where Microsoft is releasing a new version of Windows 10. Microsoft has said that the Windows 10 update will be available in the first half of the year, with the changes expected to be released soon after Windows version 1909 goes end of life on the 11th May 2021.

It’s also worth reminding you that Microsoft no longer supports Windows 7, meaning you won’t receive security updates from Microsoft: a considerable security risk. You can still download Windows 10 for free to get the latest updates.  Don’t delay – we don’t expect Microsoft to keep this available at no cost, forever.  We recommend that you contact us here at SCS for advice regarding this, rather than doing it yourself.

So, what can we expect from the Spring Windows 10 update?

We have come to expect the Spring update to include quite significant changes, but this year is a little different.  The changes, while important, particularly the security updates, are relatively minor.  This is possibly because Microsoft is expected to release a significant refresh, code-named Sun Valley, later in the year.

This next Windows 10 update will be the first H1 feature update to be delivered using Microsoft’s servicing technology – it will arrive the same way the monthly Windows 10 updates do.

It is important that you are running the latest version of Windows. Please contact us and we can perform the updates across your organisation for you.
