Microsoft’s Windows 10 October 2018 Update, aka version 1809, has been made available to a wider set of Windows 10 users. Although the update was only re-released recently after Microsoft was forced to pull the update following a major early incident, Microsoft is making the update available to basically everyone.
The company announced on Monday that the new Windows 10 October 2018 Update is available to all “advanced users”. And figuring out if you are an advanced user could be quite confusing as Microsoft doesn’t really outline what you need to be considered as an advanced user.

Well, as it turns out, an advanced user is basically someone who can manually check for updates in the Settings app. So if you are yet to get the Windows 10 October 2018 Update, simply open up the Settings app, go to the Update & Security page, and check for updates to receive the update.
