Windows 10 Version 1809 Now Available for More Users

Microsoft is making the update to Windows 10 version 1809 available for more devices, most likely after the December 2018 Patch Tuesday that brought additional fixes for this OS release.

Windows 10 version 1809, also known as October 2018 Update, was originally released on October 2, but Microsoft decided to pull it only a few days later due to a major bug potentially causing the removal of user files stored in libraries.

The update was then re-launched in November, and Microsoft said at that time that it was embracing a more cautious approach, meaning version 1809 would only become available to devices when they are considered to be fully supported, even when a manual check for updates was performed.

“While the April Update had the fastest Windows 10 update rollout velocity, we are taking a more measured approach with the October Update, slowing our rollout to more carefully study device health data. We will offer the October Update to users via Windows Update when data shows your device is ready and you will have a great experience,” Microsoft explained.More devices getting the updateNeedless to say, the rollout advanced much slower than anticipated, as Microsoft wanted to make sure that the update would run smoothly on all devices receiving it.

And this week, Windows 10 version 1809 landed on a new batch of devices, according to reports. I’m seeing user posts (1 and 2) that the October update is now available for a wide variety of Surface devices, including the Surface Go, the Surface Book, and the Surface Pro.

While the update isn’t always offered automatically on these devices, users explain that manually checking for updates from Windows Update offers Windows 10 version 1809. In most of the cases, the installation is completed successfully with no bug whatsoever.

Originally, it was expected that the rollout of Windows 10 version 1809 would be completed by the end of the year, but as it turns out, it could take one more month to reach the final phase.
