It won’t be long until Windows 10 Version 21H1 finally arrives on the main branch.
Windows updates take a lot of time and effort to release, with lots of bug fixes and preview builds paving the way toward the official release. Now, Microsoft is proud to announce that Windows 10 Version 21H1, christened with the more palatable name «May 2021 update,» is almost ready for release.
The software giant broke the good news on its website, Windows Blogs. Microsoft believes that it’s coming close to finalizing the testing phase of version 21H1, which means the update is nearing an official release on the main channel.
Microsoft is placing the last strawberry on top of the cake with Build 19043.928. The update doesn’t contain many exciting features, but it does squash some nasty bugs found in the update.
For instance, the update fixes several security flaws that a researcher thankfully found. It also fixes a problem people had when trying to use an early version of the KB5000842 update.
The bug fix is currently on the Release channel, so people subscribed to it can download and test this update today. It’s a good idea to keep your eyes on the Release channel, as any new updates on it are just a stones throw away from making its debut on the main branch of Windows 10.
If this final bug fix does the job, Microsoft can then prepare to release Version 21H1 to the world. This will bring a swathe of bug fixes and stability updates to Windows 10, so you should find your computer runs a bit better once the update drops.
Microsoft doesn’t have an exact date on when the update will drop. However, given that it’s called the «May 2021 update,» it’s safe to assume it’ll come out sometime within that month.
The final touches to the Windows 10 21H1 update have arrived on the Release channel, so it won’t be long until it finally makes its way onto the main branch too. If you’re on the Release branch, give the update a try today and give Microsoft some final feedback before the launch of the May 2021 update.
Of course, while you wait for the update to arrive, you can do a little preparation yourself to ensure it downloads and installs itself smoothly. For instance, you can fix corrupt files, check you have enough disk space ready, and ensure you have the correct privileges to install it.
A big Windows 10 update is coming this spring. Follow these tips to avoid any problems.
