    Should I update to 20H2 or wait for 21H1?


    I just bought a Fujitsu Q704 convertible and it is running windows 10 pro 1909. It has the 20H2 version listed in available updates, and I am wondering if I should allow it to do so, or wait for the 21H1 version? It has a i3 processo r and 4gb of ram. It seems to run 1909 just fine and only issue in the reliability monitor was from when I couldn't figure out why the pointer was missing when I put the tablet back into the keyboard dock and forced windows to shut off with the tower button, until I realized I did not fully insert the tablet into the keyboard dock, otherwise no noted issues. Thanks

    :)

    Welcome to Ten Forums.

    To go from 1909 to the next version, whether that's 20H2 or 21H1, is a major feature update that will install new system files and save your old system to a Windows.old folder. This can take up to an hour to install, whether you go for 20H1 or wait for 21H2.

    The update from 20H1 to 21H2 however will then be a minor feature update, a small enablement package that turns on dormant features and installs in a few minutes, just like a cumulative update. I'd go for 20H2 now, the update to 21H1 will then be quick when it's released - plus it will be optional so you can wait to see if others report problems before deciding to update.

    With any major upgrade, it is a wise precaution to make a system image of your current system before you start. Many here use Macrium Reflect Free for that purpose.

    Should I update to 20H2 or wait for 21H1?

    Vista was a good OS - let down by a severe lack of driver support *Sad

    MS have moved to 1 major and 1 minor update per year. 1903 was a major update, 1909 was a minor update by a small enablement package. 2004 was the last major update. Once updated to 2004, both 20H2 and the forthcoming 21H1 are minor updates by enablement packages. The next major update is expected to be be 21H2, due around about October.
