October is right around the corner, and as expected, Microsoft is working on its Windows 10 October 2020 Update. It will be called Windows 10 version 20H2. If you want to get an idea of what to expect, then users who are part of the Windows Insiders program should download the newest update.
Windows 10 v 20H2 getting ready for October 2020 release
Today, we are releasing Build 19042.508 (KB4571756) to Windows Insiders in the Release Preview Channel. We believe that Build 19042.508 is the final build and still plan on continuing to improve the overall experience of the October 2020 Update on customers’ PCs as part of our normal servicing cadence, said Microsoft.
The release is called Build 19042.508, but when it shows up in Windows Update, it will be seen as (KB4571756). Now, according to the folks at Microsoft, Build 19042.508 is the final version for the October 2020 Update.
It will come to Insiders first, in fact, it is available beginning today. When the month of October comes around, regular Windows 10 computer users will get the chance to update their devices to this newest version of the operating system.
Bear in mind that if you are an Insider who wants to download the October 2020 Update, the software giant will require you to navigate to Settings > Update & Security > Windows Update and choose to download and install 20H2. You will have to be an Insider who is part of the Release Preview Channel via the “seeker” experience in Windows Update.
If you are a part of “seeker,” Microsoft promises to send the update to you first before everyone else, which is quite nice if you think about it.
Now, after the computer is updated with the October 2020 update, new servicing updates will continue to be delivered to Insiders whenever they are available.
Furthermore, if you’re an Insider who is a part of the Beta Channel, the new update will be released to you automatically, so no need to manually initiate a download at any time. Additionally, any Insiders who have not to download the new update previously, they will be offered automatically when it is available.
