Microsoft is in the process of adding finishing touches to the upcoming major update of Windows 10 codenamed Windows 10 19H2. The software giant earlier hinted that the second major update of Windows 10 for the year 2019 will land soon by making the Build 18363.356 ESD available on WSUS. However, it’s wasn’t clear as to when Microsoft will bring the update to the public.
Now, according to Zac Bowden at WindowsCentral, Microsoft will release the Windows 10 19H2 Update by early November, it might release the update later this month if all goes well. And if you go back in time, the Windows 10 1809(October Update) Update was also released around the same time last year, so it seems likely that the 19H2 Update will follow suit.
I hear Microsoft is hoping to have 19H2 signed off by the end of next week. I think we'll be getting a final build very soon. GA later in the month/early Nov.

That said, there is still no information on the official name for the 19H2 Update, but there is a high degree of probability that Microsoft will call it either ‘Windows 10 October 2019 Update,’ or ‘Windows 10 November 2019 Update,’ depending on which month the update become available for the public.
It’s worth noting that users running the Windows 10 May 2019 Update will be able to install the 19H2 feature update like a monthly cumulative update. However, Users who are running any Windows 10 version older than Windows 10 May 2019 Update are not going to get the 19H2 update like a monthly cumulative update, meaning that the way of updating to Windows 10 19H2 will be the same as before for users running Windows October 2018 Update or older.
