    Windows 10 21H1 ‘Spring 2021’ update inches closer to release


    Microsoft has begun the preparation work on the next Windows 10 feature update “21H1” due to land in the first half of 2021. As we reported last year, Windows 10 version 21H1 will be a minor one and Sun Valley redesign will be introduced in the fall, according to the latest from the grapevine.

    In 2021, Microsoft is doing things the other way round to adjust the release cadence of its Windows 10 major feature updates and focus on the launch of Windows 10X for single-screen devices.

    Windows 10 21H1, which is a service pack-like minor update, will be released in the spring (between April and May) followed by a big design refresh codenamed ‘Sun Valley’ or ’21H2′ in the fall.

    According to references found in Windows 10 KB4598291, Microsoft has finally started testing the enablement package that will update your device to ‘version 21H1’. This also confirms that the Windows 10 Spring 2021 update is a small download, at least if you’re upgrading from version 20H2 and 20H1.

    Essentially, Windows 10 21H1 download is a simple ‘on switch’ or a tiny enablement package and new features will be present in the latest cumulative updates for version 20H2 (October 2020 Update).

    However, if you’re upgrading from a one-year-old version of Windows 10, the size of the 21H1 would be more than 3GB, which is the common size for big feature updates. If you’re on version 20H2 and you haven’t installed the most recent update, the download size would be less than 500MB.

    Since Windows 10 version 21H1 is based on October 2020 Update / May 2020 Update, it’s likely that the build number will advance to ‘19043’ from 19042 or 19041.

    As we mentioned at the outset, Microsoft is changing the release cadence for 2021 to focus on Windows 10X and Windows 10 Sun Valley update.

    Next Major Windows 10 Update Named "Spring Creators Update"

    The next Windows 10 service pack major update has been named "Spring Creators Update." Windows Insider Program users toying with Build 17618 of the operating system spotted a listing of all the major updates of Windows 10 known to the build, when running "Get-VMHostSupportedVersion" in Power Shell. The last entry reads "Microsoft Windows 10 Spring Creators Update 1803." The version number (1803 in this case), often coincides with the public release date of the update. The Fall Creators Update 1709, released in 2017-09 (September) to Insiders. Going by that convenion, Spring Creators Update could see a "branded" Insider preview build this month, 2018-03 (March), with a public release usually 3-4 weeks after, presumably before Summer kicks in.
