Windows 10 Redstone 4 Inches Closer to Public Release

Microsoft Announces the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update

Microsoft is only a few days away for the official public rollout of the next Windows 10 update. The company is today releasing the release candidate for Redstone 4 to Insiders in the Release Preview ring, allowing curious users get the new update before everyone else.

Redstone 4 is being released in phases to Insiders in the Release Preview ring, but Microsoft says all Insiders in the Release Preview ring should have the update by next Monday. The company is expected to start the phased rollout of the update to the public on Patch Tuesday — that’s the 10th of April.

It is worth noting, however, that Microsoft is yet to confirm the official name or the release date for the update. Redmond typically announces the release date and branding for upcoming updates a few weeks or even months before the release, but the company seems to be doing things a little differently with Redstone 4.

    Well, on the one Windows 10 device I have, I'm blocking all feature updates for the max 1 year. I just want something approaching stable that won't break when MS push out these ridiculous bi-annual upgrades.

    The RC is going to the Release Preview ring by April 9, but the final release is going out to everyone starting April 10? Is there a point to that?

      It is releasing in waves to Release Preview, now. They're getting data (speed/functionality installed vs not yet installed). They'll finish all the waves before the public release. So, yes, the point is clear.
