Windows 10 Spring Creators Update has been silently delayed by Microsoft

Microsoft has never said anything publicly about the next release of Windows 10: it did not communicate an exact launch date, and it did not even confirm the name - Windows 10 Spring Creators Update. That name only showed up on several occasions to users that are members of the Windows Insider program. Most Windows insiders assumed from the little information that was available to them, that April 10th was the launch date. April 10th has passed, and this release was not made available to the public. Here's why:

Windows 10 Spring Creators Update may have been delayed by a security bug which was discovered late in the release process

Microsoft has not said anything about the launch date and why it did not release Windows 10 Spring Creators Update yesterday. However, it did launch a new build for Windows insiders, which fixes several security flaws:

  • Addresses a PDF security issue in Microsoft Edge.
  • Addresses an issue that, in some instances, prevents Internet Explorer from identifying custom controls.
  • Security updates to Internet Explorer, Microsoft Edge, Microsoft scripting engine, Windows kernel, Microsoft graphics component, Windows Server, Windows cryptography, and Windows datacenter networking.

These security updates may be the reason why Microsoft delayed the release of Windows 10 Spring Creators Update.

Windows 10 Spring Creators Update release date is still unknown

Yesterday, Microsoft did not release any statements about when Windows 10 Spring Creators Update will come. Considering the cadence of releases for the Windows Insider program, and their release notes, it is clear that we should have this update soon. If everything goes well, April 17th should be the release date. But this is speculation on our part, based on the little data that we have. Also, some websites have started speculating that the name will be changed from Windows 10 Spring Creators Update to Windows 10 Version Next, or something else. It remains to be seen whether this will also happen. If it does, we will update all our materials about this release, to reflect this change.
