Microsoft re-christens, push back Windows 10 April 2019 update to “late May”

Today in a blog post Microsoft announced details regarding the roll-out of the Windows 10 1903, till now also known as the Windows 10 April 2019 update.

Re-christened as the  Windows 10 May 2019 Update, Microsoft revealed that the update is now only scheduled to start roll-out in ” late May 2019″.

“I’m pleased to announce that the Windows 10 May 2019 Update will start to be available next week in the Release Preview Ring for those in the Windows Insider Program. We will begin broader availability in late May for commercial customers, users who choose the new May 2019 Update for their Windows 10 PC via “check for updates,” and customers whose devices are nearing the end of support on a given release,” Microsoft said in a blog post.

The 1903 update has been widely believed to be at RTM level for a week or two now, but it is clear Microsoft plans to take a more cautious approach on this occasion, following the disaster which was the October 2018 update.

Microsoft writes:

We are taking further steps to be confident in the quality of the May 2019 Update. We will increase the amount of time that the May 2019 Update spends in the Release Preview phase, and we will work closely with ecosystem partners during this phase to proactively obtain more early feedback about this release.

The Windows 10 May 2019 Update will bring improvements to Start menu, Action Center, Settings app, a new Windows light theme experience, Windows Sandbox and several other features.
