Microsoft announced changes to the way updates are delivered when windows 10 1903 was released a year ago, mainly by not forcing users to upgrade to the latest version. Note, however, that if you’re using a version that’s about to end support (such as 1809), Microsoft will let you automatically upgrade the latest version of your Windows 10 operating system (for example, 2004).
In fact, as early as May, Microsoft confirmed the policy for 1809 users on the Windows 10 version dashboard website, and now is the time.
Windows 10 1809, released in October 2018, is clearly a rather cumbersome version.
A series of bad conditions followed when Microsoft skipped the Release Preview channel for Insider testers. It must not be withdrawn after four days and republished after a month.
According to AdDuplex, Windows 10 1809 still accounts for 8.2% of Windows 10 PC installations.
If you don’t want to be updated to the latest Windows 10 2004 (for stability and compatibility), consider a small upgrade to the 1903 or 1909 version.
