Microsoft is starting to auto-update Windows 10 Home, Pro users on 1803 or older to 1903

Windows 10

Microsoft officials said last month that they were putting AI algorithms in place that would automatically update those on older variants of Windows 10 to 1903, the May 2019 Update via Windows Update. Today, July 16, is the day when this auto-updating process is kicking off, according to the Windows Update Twitter account.

As of today, Microsoft is starting to initiate the Windows 10 May 2019 Update (1903) for those with devices “that are at or nearing end of service and have not yet updated their device,” Microsoft’s documentation says. Microsoft officials said back in May that the company planned to do this starting in June, 2019.

“Based on the large number of devices running the April 2018 Update, that will reach the end of 18 months of service on November 12, 2019, we are starting the update process now for Home and Pro editions to help ensure adequate time for a smooth update process.”

Note: The reason many devices are still on the April 2018 Update is at least in part because the Windows 10 18H2 Update (1809) was a buggy mess.

Microsoft’s July 16 note says this process will be staggered, with officials prioritizing those devices “likely to have a good update experience and quickly put safeguards on other devices while we address known issues.” Windows 10 Home and Pro users who get the 1903 update pushed to them will still have the ability to pause the update for up to 35 days, Microsoft notes.

As my ZDNet colleague Ed Bott noted today, business users who use the Semi-Annual/Semi-Annual Targeted options for updating, Microsoft will begin pushing to some business customers on older versions of Windows 10 the 1903 release next week, Tuesday July 23, 2019. As is the case with Windows Update, the business updating process will be staggered, with certain devices blocked if Microsoft determines the update experience may go bad.

Confused? You’re not alone. The Windows 10 updating system is still messy and complicated. But unfortunately this may be — at least in the near term, as TechRepublic notes — as good as it gets.
