In theory the Windows 10 May 2019 Update is done, but Microsoft has chosen to let it marinate in the Slow and Release Preview Ring to catch show stopper and embarrassing rare but high impact bugs before release, as plagued to October 2018 Update.

If you are the brave type you can get it early by signing up as an Insider, but that involved needing to agree to share your data with Microsoft.

There is however another way to upgrade directly – the Media Creation Toolkit, and today HTNovo.net noticed that the official tool has been updated with the 1903 Update, meaning you can now create an ISO or update directly using the tool.

In reality, everyone should probably cool their heels and wait out the official process, particularly with Microsoft putting such a high emphasis on quality with this build, but if you are the “Hold my Redbull” type, you can find the tool here.
