Microsoft Pauses All Windows 10 Updates

Microsoft Suddenly Pauses All Future Windows 10 Updates ahead of June 24th Announcement

Microsoft said it is pausing all subsequent Windows 10 updates for the foreseeable future, which hints at a possible release of Windows 11…

Microsoft unceremoniously announced it is putting all future updates of Windows 10 on hold. While it’s certainly no secret that there’s been more than a few issues with updates to the operating system. Some actual bugs, while others unpopular features (like annoying pop-ups.) The former ranged from audio problems to the infamous blue screen of death, to attempts to coerce users into switching over to the Edge browser. But, this appears to be a strategic decision as it’s heavily expected Microsoft will introduce Windows 11 on June 24th.

Microsoft Pauses All Windows 10 Updates

There have been several news reports about the possible release of Windows 11. And, Microsoft itself hasn’t officially dismissed such rumors. So, it’s entirely plausible the software manufacturer plans to roll out a successor. Microsoft explains in the Windows 10 Insider Preview Build 21390 notes:

“…does not include anything new and is designed to test our servicing pipeline. Over the course of the next several weeks, our focus will be on releasing multiple Cumulative Updates on top of Build 21390. Having Insiders on the Dev Channel testing this will be of great help to us and we will be releasing updates as before very soon!”
