Although Microsoft rolls out two feature updates every year, the latest update is closer to a service pack rather than a feature update. Despite Microsoft’s attempt at convincing its customers to run the latest version of the Windows on their computers, majority of the customers don’t upgrade their computers to the latest version right away. Despite that, recent data has revealed that over half of the Windows 10 PCs are running the May 2019 update.
While Microsoft wants its customers to use the most recent version, the company doesn’t release updates to everyone at the same time for possible compatibility issues. Moreover, most of the people aren’t even offered the update until months. As a result, most computers tend to run an older version of the OS. With Microsoft ending support for April 2018, users are making the switch in a timely manner which has contributed to the increased number of PCs running the May 2019 update.
The latest data from AdDuplex has revealed that 56.6 percent of the Windows 10 users are now on the current release and 25 percent of the users are running October 2018 update. Interestingly, 13.6 percent of the users are still on April 2018 update with 1.8 percent on Fall Creators Update.
