Microsoft explains why it delayed Windows 10 version 1803 release

Microsoft did not reveal back then why it chose to delay the release of the new version; in fact, the company never confirmed that April 10, 2018 was the day that it planned to release Windows 10 version 1803 to the public.

Microsoft planned to release the Spring Creators Update for Windows 10, Windows 10 version 1803, last Tuesday on the April 2018 Patch Day. Stories did however seem to work as intended on Windows 10 PCs which are naturally more powerful than Windows 10 Mobile smartphones and could handle the extra processing necessary for the real-time video editing.

Instead of releasing Redstone 4 as is, the company is releasing an entirely new build to Insiders with the fixes built in instead of issuing fixes over Windows Update.

Explaining the issue for the first time, Sarkar explains: "As Build 17133 progressed through the rings, we discovered some reliability issues we wanted to fix".

Carl Chery is the one that managed to strike a collaboration between Apple Music and Chance the Rapper, the Grammy-winning artist. It's also being rumored that the company may announce its very first hardware product during the same event next week.

More precisely, Microsoft says it encountered a higher percentage of Blue Screen of Death (BSOD) errors on PCs, the company's Insiders Program managers said in a blog post yesterday.

The fact that Microsoft has released the fixes as a separate build (17134 doesn't come with any other new features or fixes) rather than waiting to include it in a larger, cumulative update shows how seriously it's taking the problem.

The team at Microsoft has elected to add the fixes in KB4100375 to build 17134. A "hustle" is another word for a con, and so perhaps Ms Sarker could have chosen a different word in relation to a product which has caused so much frustration for its end users. This just reinforces that Windows Insiders are critical to helping us find and fix issues before releasing feature updates to all our customers so thank you!
