Earlier last month, Microsoft started rolling out the Anniversary Update for Windows 10. Over the past couple of weeks, the company has been releasing cumulative updates for the Anniversary Update to address some of the early issues. Unlike some of the previous Windows 10 update releases, Microsoft is releasing the Anniversary Update gradually to users. Some users are already running the Anniversary Update, but some are yet to receive the Anniversary Update.
“The Anniversary Update will download and install via Windows Update. The download is automatically available to you. It will begin rolling out on 2 August 2016 and may take up to 3 months to reach all users. Internet access fees may apply,”
For those wondering, Microsoft is releasing the Anniversary Update gradually as the company wants to ensure a good experience for all of its users. For example, when the Anniversary Update was released, lots of users reported about webcam issues, as well as PowerShell issues, and much more. By releasing the update gradually, Microsoft is able to find issues with the update and fix them before releasing the update to everyone which is quite interesting. While Microsoft already has the Windows Insider program to test Windows 10 updates, the company still has “thousands” of internal testers who help Microsoft engineers improve Windows 10’s stability and fix bugs.
