Windows 10 Versions to Date: A History of Windows 10
Microsoft has decided that Windows is now a ‘service’ and as such it will receive major ‘version’ updates twice each year. It was not always so, but now we are now on that path. So, we thought we’d review the versions of Windows 10 that have been released thus far, because soon you won’t be able to tell the players without a scorecard — and you know what we mean!
Keep in mind that (according to Microsoft) each version update of Windows will be supported by for approximately 18 months after its release date. This means that Windows 10 versions 1507, 1511, and 1607 have now reached their end-of-life dates and, according to Microsoft, will not receive any further updates.
Here’s a list of the Windows 10 versions that have released, along with the version’s initial release date:
Version 1507: The very first release of Windows 10. It was released on July 20, 2015.
Version 1511: This version is also known as the November update. It was released on November 12, 2015.
Version 1607: The version is known as the Anniversary Update. This update was released on August 2, 2016.
Version 1703: Also known as the Creators Update. It was released on April 11, 2017.
Version 1709: Known as the Fall Creators Update, this update was released on October 17, 2017.
And coming soon: Version 1803 – sometimes referred to as Spring Creators Update (but not officially… yet). Version 1803 is expected to be released in April 2018, but as of now, no official release date has been announced.
