Food for thought: Is something delayed when it’s not even announced? Wait, don’t answer that. But word on the street is that the Windows 10 Spring Creators Update has been delayed.
By a bit.
Although we had nothing official from Microsoft to go here, but the company was said to have scheduled the public rollout of this latest version of its operating system, also known as Redstone 4 or Version 1803, to begin on April 10.
Well that glorious day came and went, with the software titan apparently deciding to hold back the release for an unspecific number of days.
Very little is known at this point, apart from some cryptic messages from people close to the matter, which confirm that a delay has indeed hit the new OS. It is no longer clear exactly how long we will have to wait before the rollout begins.
And what, in fact, was the reason for the delay.
Perhaps it had something to do with those Mark Zuckerberg hearings, or the fact that yesterday was Patch Tuesday, and Redmond decided to focus on the rollout of the updates.
We actually go the very first cumulative update for the Spring Creators Update yesterday, in fact.
There are also some voices suggesting that Microsoft hit a bug or snag at the very last minute. Which if true, could be a bit worrying for both the company and the users. Then again, that’s hard to believe, considering how well the previous releases have been running.
Besides, Windows 10 rollouts usually take upwards of 3 months to complete.
So, the delay should not substantially impact whatever release schedule Microsoft is following. Even if we have to wait until the end of the month to get access to the final bits of the Spring Creators Update.
