Microsoft Says Creators Update Rollout is "On Track"

Six weeks after Microsoft first began rolling out the Windows 10 Creators Update, the software giant says things are still very much “on track.” This is an important milestone, as the previous major update to Windows 10, the Anniversary Update, was well off the rails by this point in its own rollout.

“We continue to roll out the Windows 10 Creators Update in stages,” Microsoft’s John Cable explains. “We ensure things look good with the current population before we offer the update to even more devices. Based on the feedback we’ve heard and improvements we’ve made, we’ve been steadily expanding the rollout, making the Windows 10 Creators Update available to tens of millions more devices.”

As you may have seen, recent AdDuplex data bears out this claim: According to that analytics firm, the Windows 10 Creators Update is rolling out at about the same speed as its predecessor, and is now running on about 18 percent of all Windows 10 devices worldwide.

But today’s Microsoft post provides a few more details about how the firm is expanding Creators Update availability too.

“The first major rollout expansion was timed with our May monthly quality update that addressed known issues from user feedback, including the previously mentioned block for Bluetooth accessory connection issues,” Cable writes. “This issue is now resolved, the Windows Community Forum updated, and the specific devices impacted are no longer blocked from receiving the update.”
