Microsoft's Windows 10 Anniversary Update Rollout to Finish in November
Microsoft started rolling out the much-hyped Windows 10 Anniversary Update from August 2. However, many users still haven’t received a notification on their systems about the update. Now, fresh information comes in stating that the update may not be done rolling out until early November.
Microsoft did inform at the time of initial rollout that the update would be in phases because of the volume of devices running on Windows 10, but the exact time period wasn’t specified. Now, ZDNet reports that it received a blast email from Microsoft that in a footnote revealed the update will take three months to roll out to all users – which would mean by November 2. As of June, Windows 10 is estimated to have been installed on around 300 million machines around the world, and all of these machines are set to get an upgrade.
“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,” the publication informs.”)}(“datalayer”,”z9f2640b1-0322-4dc9-abe1-678b1b8037e1″,true, 1 , 1);
