Microsoft Finally Reveals Windows 10 Update History

2:09 PM
Microsoft has finally revealed to its users the way it delivers Windows service and information about Windows 10. The company is providing more details about Windows 10 updates, informing the users with a short summary about the important product developments which would be included along with each update, and links for more details. Microsoft will regularly refresh this page, as and when a new update is released.

Microsoft is currently delivering updates to two distinct Windows 10 branches; The July initial launch branch (build 10240), and the November update branch (build 10586).  The company is also introducing new operating system features in November after previewing them with Windows Insiders between July and November.



Microsoft in its official blog states,

“We're currently delivering updates to two distinct Windows 10 branches. The July initial launch branch (build 10240), and the November update branch (build 10586). We introduced new operating system features in November after having previewed, or "flighted", them with our Windows Insiders between July and November. Most customers have already been moved automatically from the July branch to the November branch. Windows 10 Professional, Enterprise, and Education edition customers can defer the update to the November branch and stay on the July feature set longer — as long as 10 years for some Enterprise customers.”

The following list some key improvements included in each update, according to the official blog:
