Microsoft has released Windows 10 May 2019 updates for all users who are still using Windows 10 April 2018 Update (1803). It is also announced that the Home and Pro versions of Windows 10 April 2018 Update are now out of service and that users are expected to upgrade to an updated version as soon as possible so that they can continue to receive security updates.
The end date for version 1803 has been around for some time, and just last month, Microsoft warned all users who were still using the April 2018 update that it was time to upgrade.
Strictly speaking, however, if the user does nothing, the computer will not be forced to upgrade to the Windows 10 May 2019 update because the user must click the button to install, which is a special design for this operating system upgrade to minimize errors during the automatic upgrade process that cause problems with the user’s computer.
In a bulletin to the Windows Message Center, Microsoft said:
Windows 10 Version 1803 Home and Professional Has Been Discontinued
Windows 10, version 1803 (updated April 2018) Home and Professional has been discontinued. For Windows 10 devices that are in the end of service or within a few months of service termination, Windows Update automatically initiates feature updates (users can also choose a convenient time) to maintain support for these devices and continue to receive monthly updates that are critical to device security and ecosystem health.
