Windows 10 20H2 Arrives Today, Here’s What IT Pros Need to Know
Today, Microsoft is releasing Windows 10 20H2 which brings with it new features and faster installations for users running the May 2020 release. But like all major updates, this release will only hit a small number of devices initially and those actively seeking the update.
Conveniently, Microsoft refers to this update by two names 20H2 and Windows 10 October 2020 update which isn’t going to confuse anyone by this point as Microsoft had used three names previously. Anyways, the update is now out and if you are an IT Pro, this is the version of Windows 10 that will be supported for 30 months.
If you are looking for what is new in this release, you can find that information here. Further, the update today will only show up for those running 1903 or later, if you are running an earlier version and would like to upgrade, you will need to wait a bit longer.
Windows 10, version 20H2 is now also available through Windows Server Update Services (WSUS), Windows Update for Business, and the Volume Licensing Service Center. If you are brave enough to be updating to every major Windows 10 release, this iteration will install like a traditional Windows Update release if you are moving from 20H1 to 20H2 – all other migrations will follow the older, and more intrusive, update process.
If you do not see the update available for your device, it likely means that there is a blocking issue that needs to be resolved prior to installation.
