AdDuplex: Windows 10’s April Update is now on 3/4s of all WIndows PCs

June 29, 2018

Microsoft’s Windows 10 is now running on over 3/4 (78.1%) of all Windows 10 devices reveals an AdDuplex report. It is now the most used Windows version currently, trailed only by the Fall Creators Update and the Anniversary Update at 15.7% and 2.5% of all Windows 10 PCs respectively.

Microsoft earlier this month already revealed that the April Update had reached 250 million users. The firm also detailed how it had used AI to intelligently handle the rollout experience and optimise it for its users.

Some of the points Microsoft made include:

  • Microsoft’s AI intelligently selects devices that their feedback data indicate would have a great update experience and offers the April 2018 Update to these devices first.
  • As the rollout progresses, Microsoft continuously collects update experience data and retrain the AI models to learn which devices will have a positive update experience, and for which devices they need to wait until they have higher confidence in a great experience.
  • When the AI model, feedback or telemetry data indicate an issue, Microsoft quickly adjusts and prevent affected devices from being offered the update until they thoroughly analyze the issue.

In terms of stability and quality, Microsoft released the following numbers.,

  • 20% reduction in system stability issues
  • 20% total reduction in operating system and driver stability issues, in collaboration with our hardware partners, on over 400k ecosystem drivers
  • Faster updates by reducing the amount of time your device is offline updating by up to 63%
  • (Fun Fact: telemetry shows a U.S.-based PC updated from the Fall Creators Update to the April 2018 update in just over three minutes!)
  • Edge launch times improved by up to 40-50% (post-logon window

Microsoft is currently testing Windows 10 RS5 which is expected to launch in September this year.
