Microsoft Holds off on its Next Windows 10 Update Thanks to a Bug
Ever since Microsoft said that Windows 10 will be the last version of the desktop version of Windows they have been releasing new builds with new features and fixes on a pretty regular basis. For the most part things have been working out fine and end users are enjoying a nice variety of cool new stuff with each major release but it appears that the winning streak has come to an end.
The next scheduled major Spring Creator’s Update codenamed Redstone 4 was supposed to be released last week but it has been put on hold thanks to a bug that causes problems such as BSOD (Blue Screen of Death) errors. So instead of releasing the update and then fixing it, Microsoft has decided to create a new update without the bug. This update will be pushed out via Windows Update as soon as its ready and it’s looking like it will be sometime in May with the final release being called Windows 10 April 2018 Update.
Microsoft didn’t comment on what exactly was causing the BSOD bug but the issue was discovered in the Insider build of Windows 10 numbered 17133 which was meant for developers rather than the public. So now the new build will be numbered 17134 and will most likely contain fixes for other minor issues that have been discovered.
This next update is rumored to have some cool new features such as HDR support and Timeline feature which is Microsoft’s version of the Mac OS Continuity feature that allows you to switch between apps on Mac OS and iOS devices without losing your place.
