Windows 10 Version 1909 (19H2): What is it and what is included?

The next major update from Windows 10 after the 1903 update is Windows 10 Version 1909. The code name for the V1909 is 19H2. In our previous articles, we have discussed how to download and install Windows 10 V1903 update. Windows 10 Version 1909 is not available to download and install yet.

Microsoft has now released the Preview Build from the upcoming Windows 10 1909 to everyone in the Release Preview ring. The company released the first build last week, but it was only offered to a subset of Release Preview ring Insiders. Microsoft has now increased the “seeker” experience making the Windows 10 1909 (19H2) available for everyone in the Release Preview ring.

In this article, we will provide information about release date of Windows 10 Version 1909 update, its features, the process of downloading and installing it once it is available.

Release date of Windows 10 Version 1909 Update:

The new feature update V1909 is expected to start rolling out sometime in the month of September 2019, and it will be offered as a free update for computers already running Windows 10.

Microsoft will be rolling out version 1909 gradually, meaning that no every device will get the new version the same day. Instead, devices known to be fully compatible will get it first automatically. Then as the update has gone through more testing, and there are not blocking bugs, the company will make the update available more broadly. However, the update will not download and install automatically, you will have to initiate the upgrade manually through the Windows Update settings page.

If your device is running version 1903, then version 1909 will download and install as a cumulative update without the need of full reinstallation.

On the other hand, if your device is running an older version, such as version 1809 or 1803, then the Windows 10 19H2 update will download and use the normal upgrade process, which means that a full reinstallation will be required.

While the new update will not install automatically, if your device is running an older version of the operating system nearing to the end of service, then Windows 10 will download and install version 1909 automatically (but not immediately).

In the case that your computer is not seeing the 19H2 update automatically, chances are that the update is currently not compatible for you. When the computer does not meet the Update requirements, you cannot install the update on your computer. Therefore, the update will not be installed automatically when the older version update is installed and you understand the risks.

How to download and install Windows 10 Version 1909 update?

Once the Windows 10 Version 1909 update is available, you will be notified through Windows Update. You can just download and install the V1909 update on your computer.

When the update is available to download, you can also use Media Creation Tool, to download the updated setup file and install it on your computer.

Why should I upgrade the computer to Windows 10 Version 1909?

When your computer is running smooth and perfect with the version already it is installed, you may get this question, why should I go to V1909. Here is the answer for that.

Windows 10 keeps on releasing the updates to provide some new features to the end users and includes the fixes for the issues that created in the previous builds. It is a good idea to switch to the new version because it will apply all the already available patches for version 1903, plus additional fixes, improvements and a bunch of tweaks.

  • You can now quickly create an event straight from the Calendar fly out on the Taskbar.
