Windows 10 Update History?
Microsoft released the original Windows 10 in mid-2015, providing a better return to PC focus that existed before the Windows 8 entered the market. They released it with minimal iffy bits such as the Universal Windows Platform (UWP) and the Microsoft Edge. Their promise was that the Microsoft’s Waas (Windows as a Service) vision would keep their customers updated with security and fixes updates in addition to regular characteristic updates.
The first update, known as the Fall Update, came in November 2015. However, it was a minor update focusing on fit-and-finish work. It addressed feedback from the first release. The Anniversary Update, was the second – probably a bigger release – and the only new version that Windows released in 2016. The update arrived in mid-2016, around one year after the version’s release. The update offered more features associated with Windows Ink, Edge, Tablet Mode, gaming, Cortana and notifications. Unfortunately, the 2016 update version also suffered several reliability issues.
The coire Windows 10 promise has remained solid. The operating software works perfectly and most importantly, it does that across a diverse array of devices. On April 11,2017, Microsoft released the Creators Update, which is less impactful and smaller release than the predecessor. It is more like the Fall Update. Possibly, Microsoft released the Update with an aim of promoting the Big Box features.
