Any news on roll out of Autumn Update?

  john bunyan 20:22 30 Nov 2018

I have Windows 10 version1803 (OS Build 17134.441). I prefer to wait official roll outs rather than insider ones. I am minding a couple of other folks PC's while they are away for a while (Updating, backing up etc). I had hoped to get the new version installed - is it 1809? .

What is the latest on the roll out after it was pulled in October?

Does not seem well publicised.

It is out, but they are rolling it out gradually, I got it at the beginning of the month, if you do a search you can get it from Microsoft officially if you want it

Thanks; I’ll have a look.

It seems , if one uses iCloud, necessary to update to the latest version before installing 1809. Will try in next few days.

When you say you got it, was that through normal check for updates or did you go through here ?

The last I read about it, the phased rollout is tied to your hardware, particularly your CPU. Which CPU do you have?

Although I've updated to 1809 on all my laptops on original update I had to uninstall iTunes on one of them. No loss really for me. Hate to be tied down to anyone. Latest precaution is that mapped drives don't quite work.

Golden update with any software updates is to leave it a couple of months whilst bugs are ironed out.

Apart from qwbos' link I cannot see a way of updating without going into the development mode.

the update you refer to is being drip fed in bits and pieces because as you say , it got pulled , this was because "insider users" reported photos , documents and other items just vanishing from their pc's but Microsoft could not explain why it happened

"leave it a couple of months"

Isn't that possible only with 'Pro' not 'Home' versions?
