Microsoft’s Phased Approach for the Windows 10 Creators Update Rollout

In a recent blog post, Microsoft’s Director of Program Management, Windows Servicing and Delivery, John Cable outlined the phased approach the company will be taking to deploy Windows 10 Creators Update to existing Windows 10 PCs.

When Microsoft starts the official rollout on April 11, John states:

  1. The first phase will target newer devices, especially those we tested together with our OEM hardware partners.
  2. We will then expand the Creators Update release to additional devices based on the feedback we receive during the initial phase.
  3. We’ll iterate this process over a period of several months until all compatible devices running Windows 10 worldwide are offered the Creators Update.


So, for those individuals with older PCs, the availability of Creators Update could take several months. If you don’t want to wait, you can use THIS method to get it on April 5.
