Windows 10 20H2 or Build 19042 has now reached the final stage of development, in the last update (Build 19042.541) it has been explained that many improvements have been provided including problems with the WSL that users had complained about in Windows 10 2004.
Now on the occasion this time, let’s discuss a little about the estimated release date of the Windows 10 version which is also a (cumulative update) of this Windows 10 May 2020 Update.
Based on rumors, Windows 10 20H2 which is also out there called the October 2020 Update is expected to be released in the middle of October 2020, more precisely it is expected to come together with the Cumulative Update in October (Patch Tuesday), on October 13-14 2020.
Why is it released simultaneously with the cumulative update? This is of course because the updates provided are quite minimalist, and the size of the update itself will not be as big as the usual major update. Even in the last tutorial, we can get Windows 10 20H2 by only getting Update KB4562830 which is only 70 MB in size.
In addition, you could say that the features that are present in Windows 10 20H2 itself actually already exist in Windows 10 2004, it’s just not activated yet, if we remember back with the tutorial to get the Windows 10 20H2 Start Menu in Windows 10 2004, we only need to add a Registry Key just right.
Release Will Be Gradual
As usual, Microsoft will use a gradual and controlled launch method and of course not all users will get Windows 10 20H2 simultaneously at the same time, this is of course to avoid compatibility problems on the user’s device, and even the event of a blocked update may occur. will happen again if there is a compatibility problem on the old device.
Windows 10 20H2 is an optional update.
Another rumor says that Windows 10 20H2 will come as an optional update, where this feature update will not be automatically provided as usual and users must download and install it manually via Windows Update.
But of course if a device with Windows 10 is nearing the end of service / support, then finally Windows 10 20H2 will be shipped automatically.
If the rumors and that estimate is correct, it is only about three weeks from now until Windows 10 20H2 was released officially to the public, and from what we can as a user Insider Preview Release and, as already described Microsoft a few days ago, maybe Build 19042.508 is the final build.
But once again it needs to be noted, this article could have missed what was expected, the release date could be accelerated or slowed down depending on Microsoft’s decision, besides that it could be that the Final Build released was 19042.541 like what we have got for now. But of course with this we have a little idea that the Windows 10 20H2 version is almost ready to launch.
